Hog Roast Tonbridge
Everybody loves a castle. Well, little boys love castles definitely but I think it’s fair to say that a roam around a castle is enough to bring out the child in anyone, especially if it looks the part. Tonbridge castle certainly look s the business when it comes to ‘proper’ castles. There’s even a Tonbridge castle moat, for added authenticity. But don’t worry, no-one is going to throw you in the dungeons or submit you to some horrible torture.
The castle is just one of the fascinating highlights of the Kent town. The castle has seen its fair share of battles in its time but also enjoyed a few good celebrations, I would guess. Look at the castle and you can just imagine all the goings on that must have taken place behind those stone walls, not least the odd banquet. And what would the banquet have included? Very possibly a hog roast!
Of course, the days of feasts in the castle are over. Or are they? It seems that the medieval feast of hog roast is enjoying something of a modern day revival, especially as a fine food for events and functions. Not bad for an old medieval dish, but why is hog roast attracting a new audience in Tonbridge and other parts of the country. A little investigation is needed, I think.
