While you may assume from our name that Hog Roast Tenterden just cooks tasty hog roasts, we can actually provide so much more for your wedding, private party or corporate event, and often do. For a lovely wedding that we recently catered locally at the gorgeous Ratsbury Barn on Smallhythe Road, we were asked to cook our popular Menu 3, with two main courses of both hog and chicken for 90 guests. With this menu, you also get to choose four salad dishes and a potato option, and for this meal, we would be freshly preparing a tomato and mozzarella salad, a pasta salad, a Caesar salad and our homemade coleslaw, as well as wedges.
Ratsbury Barn itself is a thatched barn that’s a unique, romantic wedding venue in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Tenterden. You can hire ‘The Barn’ as your wedding venue between May and October and decorate it to suit you, and on this day it was decorated beautifully. Our Hog Roast Tenterden team got to work in the glorious sunshine, first preparing the hog to be roasted for several hours and then setting the temperature low and keeping an eye on it as it cooked away. While it’s being roasted to absolute perfection, a centrepiece hog fills the surroundings with amazing aromas and looks great, too. It’s something that your wedding guests will always remember, especially once they’ve tasted it.
For this wedding meal, we were also asked to cook veggie skewers, which are suitable for vegetarians, and we can make them vegan without halloumi too. We have lots of menus for you to look through when you’re choosing the food you want served on your special day and that includes options for any guests with dietary needs.
It was sometime later that we prepared the chickens to be spit-roasted and then later, the wedges and salad dishes, and when we served the lovely food buffet-style, it was on real crockery. Afterwards, Hog Roast Tenterden wowed the guests even more with the cream teas, with mini cakes on cake stands. All in all, it was a truly magical day and our tasty, great-looking food helped to make it even more special.
