Hog Roast Hatfield

The actual roots of the practice of hog roasting are hard to trace, but there is no doubt that the simple, effective method of cooking has been used for centuries and almost certainly in a historical place like Hatfield. Perhaps most recognizable as a medieval practice, spit roasting is an excellent way of cooking for a great deal of people at once. In medieval times, huge hogs would be cooked over open flames for hours to feed hundreds of people at large social gatherings and banquets. It must have taken some real elbow grease to keep turning that spit for hours!

The delight on our customers faces never gets old. The sight of a full roasted hog turning slowly on a spit, or simmering perfectly in our tray roasting machine, is theatrical and not easily forgotten.

At a recent event for hog roast hire Hatfield, we rented a machine and hog roast chef to a couple hosting a large party for their daughter. The garden was chosen as the main area for the party, and when the machine was delivered marquees were being put up in the garden. After a spot on the patio was reserved for the hog roasting machine, our chef got to work right away. Preparing the whole pig on the spit and starting off the cooking process, which would take about 6 hours (this is why we often arrange to deliver our hog roasting machines before an event begins) and preparing a buffet from scratch. The hosts had already made their own buffet selection, but we thought the addition of our soft bread rolls, freshly-made apple sauce, potato salad and fresh salads would really compliment out fine carved pork.
