Hog Roast Cowes
Cowes, overlooking the Solent from the estuary of the River Medina this is a place rich in tradition and traditional values. There’s history everywhere you look. Long associated with boat and sail making (the first hovercraft was tested here, remember) this is a busy and enterprising town. The people here love a challenge, that’s clear. From the fortifications built by Henry VIII to dissuade the French from invasion to the passion they have for regattas, the locals certainly know how to work hard… and how to enjoy themselves too. Great news for the teams here at chef and griddle because that’s what we’re all about; hog roast Cowes style!
A quick look at the diary tells you we have to be on our toes too because no two days are ever the same. We’re catering for all sorts of events and special occasions. On Monday it’s the Captain’s retirement party (say nothing – the party bit’s a secret!). On Wednesday afternoon we’re catering for the Thompsons’ wedding over in Whippingham and on Friday evening there’s a formal black tie hog roast dinner for the staff of a certain retail chain. Then we go out and about across the island. It’s all go when it comes to feeding the good people of Cowes. It must be the bracing sea air that gives them an appetite!
