While our name may suggest otherwise, Hog Roast Taunton don’t only provide hog roasts in Taunton. We can cook you and your guests all kinds of tasty, homemade dishes, whether you fancy a hog roast, a spit-roasted joint of lamb or beef, spit-roasted poultry, barbecued meats, or even something completely different like whole salmon or vegetarian quiche. Plus we are based all over the UK, so often cater elsewhere in Somerset or further afield.
For a wedding at Greenway Farm Hall in Taunton’s Bishop’s Lydeard, however, we stayed local and fed around 150 guests with plenty of our delicious food. If you have a look at our menus online, you’ll see that there are lots of choices available but they’re certainly not exhaustive. If you fancy mixing and matching or creating a bespoke menu, you’re more than welcome to do so. For this special occasion, Hog Roast Taunton was asked to provide our Wedding Menu 4, where we serve the food on real crockery, plus a couple of additions. There are several meats to choose from with this menu, but our bride asked for half hog roast and half spit-roasted chicken, as well as some sausages, which we did with pleasure.
We roast the pig and chicken slowly but surely, until golden brown on the outside and juicy and tender on the inside, although a hog takes much longer to cook due to its size. You can also choose salad or vegetables to be served with the meat, and for this party, it would be a pasta salad, a Greek salad, a tomato and mozzarella salad, a homemade coleslaw and some extra veggies too, plus we offer a potato option, and we would be serving new potatoes. No one would go hungry at this feast!
By around 4.30pm, it was time to think about filling some hungry tummies and that’s when the queues started. Once we’d filled giant trays with freshly-roasted meat, salty crackling, stuffing, potatoes, and vegetables, it was time for our Hog Roast Taunton team to serve everything nice and hot, buffet-style, together with bread rolls, wraps, apple sauce, the fresh salad dishes and condiments.
