Hog Roast Langport
Today we visited the tiny little market town of Langport. The streets there are very quaint and the pleasant river Parrett runs through Langport. There is a walking trail along the River Parrett which is 50 miles long and passes some beautiful historical sites. It is testament to both the people and the area that the path is so well kept.
While there, we were catering for a medieval themed birthday party in a little house near the Hanging Chapel. The party was a joint 5th and 60th party for a little girl and her grandfather who wanted to dress up as princesses and knights for the day! The party was an absolute delight and due to the small numbers, the party was a very intimate affair made up of mostly family and close family friends.
Our hog roast dinner suited the theme of the party perfectly and one little boy was entranced by the turning of the rotisserie. The costumes that the family wore were absolutely fabulous, I’ve never seen so many crowns, pointy hats and knight’s helmets in one room! As part of the menu, we served our extra special stuffing, crackling and apple sauce to accompany the gorgeous roasted meats. It was a pleasure to cater for such a lovely family and the hog roast went down a treat as it is such a traditional food in keeping with the theme of the party. Not only was hog roast hire Langport such a brilliant choice because of the medieval theme but it definitely offered a tasty alternative to boring children’s party food.
