Why are Hog Roasts the popular choice in London and the South East?

It’s been a bumper summer here at The Organic Spitroast Company with our trusty van and trailer cris-crossing the South East with our range of delicious,  organic rare breed (Essex Saddleback)pork, seasoned and ready to roast and serve to your guests. Our diary is filling to brimming with bookings (so if you are keen to have our outdoor catering at your event BOOK NOW) and we have all sorts of events lined up from celebrity soirees to school festivals. As one of the South East’s leading spit roast caterers we find that by far the consensus for this Summer’s catering is for prime and premium HOG ROASTS. Lamb, beef and even rotisserie chickens are not getting even the slighted look in, even though we can provide them for your booking of any scale.

So what is it we Brits love about a prime piece of roast porker. From our point of view, the meat, its provenance and quality lend itself to a flavoursome roast. Perhaps the eyes are bigger than the stomach in assessing what meat you want. The Essex Saddleback organically reared and prepared at the peak of maturity is a serious piece of meat weighing at least 150kg at a time. Unlike other types of meat the fatty parts (not the healthiest but very delicious) pretty much cook the meat, resulting in a fantastic crackling, copious dripping for your spuds and tender but flavour rich meat that is an experience to eat.

Roast pork, especially in The Home Counties has a decidedly English air, and we are often serving at refined weddings with apple sauce. Hertfordshire, Essex and Kent have some spectacularly beautiful grounds which we have had the pleasure of catering many a time and a Hog roast does fit well with the scale and beauty of a summertime outdoor catering event.

Any how – we are always on hand and ready to take bookings for your event, wherever you want us and whatever you would like. So that will be a hog roast then?
