When Benjamin asked Hog Roast Shanklin to provide the food for his private party at home in his back garden, he knew he wanted a hog roast centrepiece to wow most of his guests with our deliciously mouthwatering pigs in buns but he also needed to ensure that his mum, who has a gluten intolerance, could be catered for as well. When we told him that she could eat our pigs in buns too, and that we’d only need to bring along suitable bread rolls to make that happen, Benjamin was thrilled and couldn’t wait to let her know.
On the morning of the party, our Hog Roast Shanklin chef and catering assistants arrived and set up our equipment before preparing the meat to be roasted. Service was due to start several hours later but we always need plenty of time for a hog to cook through and through, inside and out, slowly but surely, as you can’t rush it. After scoring the meat all over and adding water and salt, it was soon sizzling away outside in the garden, protected from the elements by our trusty gazebo.
By lunchtime, we had a perfectly cooked pig resting before being carved up, and we got the other pigs in buns ingredients ready, including our own apple sauce and stuffing, fresh bread rolls and wraps, and condiments to suit everyone, and soon enough, Benjamin and his guests were feasting on our truly tasty food.
