We spend most of our lives looking back at things and often, sadly, thinking how we may have been able to do things a little better or a little differently. And often we look back to the way things were in the hope that we can somehow recreate the past. It’s a bit like the old sweet shop that everyone recalls so fondly. It’s no wonder that there has been a resurgence in the old style sweet shop.
So, should we look back for inspiration when it comes to catering for special occasions or should we stay modern and look to the future? What would the four thousand folk of Hildenborough do? Well, I suspect they would do a little bit of both because a hog roast Hildenborough event is a bit of a case of back to the future!
