A few weeks ago, Hog Roast Cupar heard from Charlotte, who was on a mission to create an unforgettable joint birthday celebration for her parents, who were turning 65 and 70 just weeks apart.
Charlotte’s primary concern was finding a budget-friendly catering solution that didn’t compromise on quality, and that’s where Hog Roast Cupar stepped in, offering an enticing value-for-money proposition.
Working with our catering manager, Steve, Charlotte decided on a traditional hog roast with all the trimmings, a choice that would prove to be a huge hit with the guests!
On the chosen Saturday afternoon, the Hog Roast Cupar team descended upon the function hall Charlotte had rented for the occasion. With clockwork precision, Steve and his team set up the grill, expertly scored the meat, rubbed it with salt, and initiated the slow-cooking process over a low flame, ensuring perfection by serving time.
As the tempting aroma of the hog roast filled the air, Steve meticulously arranged the serving tables with an array of gluten-free rolls and wraps, along with an assortment of condiments and seasonings. For the non-meat-eating guests, he rustled up BBQ-pulled jackfruit rolls, ensuring everyone had something tasty to sink their teeth into. A bowl of applesauce was also provided to complement the show-stopping pig.
The arrival of the 95 guests at 6 pm marked the beginning of a feast that would leave everyone raving. Steve, with his culinary prowess, carved up the hog roast, serving the succulent meat on soft rolls adorned with crackling, sage and onion stuffing, and a dollop of applesauce. Charlotte’s parents, as the honoured duo of the evening, were the first to experience this aromatic delight, and their satisfaction set the tone for the rest of the celebration.
With impeccable timing, Hog Roast Cupar served the remaining guests, who expressed their delight at the freshness and flavour of every dish. Steve’s final culinary task for the evening was as impressive as the hog roast itself—he expertly sliced and served the birthday cake, dressing each serving with berries and fresh cream, creating a fitting finale to a celebration marked by culinary excellence and the warm glow of shared joy.
