In terms of hog and spit roasting – you simply cannot ignore the region and non-metropolitan county of Lincolnshire. Situated on the sunshine drenched east coast of mainland England, Lincolnshire is a by word when it comes to exceptional food and drink. Throughout its history, the area has given Britain wonderful flavours that have become cemented in our history and will stand there for years to come and will truly weather the corrosive storm of time. To those living in Lincolnshire, it is almost as if we have a treasure trove which we are happy to keep a secret, with lovely areas such as Hog Roast Bagworth providing us with havens of natural beauty and deceptively good weather. We’re quite happy to let the rest of the folk of Britain continue as they are and to keep this lovely place all to ourselves! Of course, this is just a joke – however, if one travels through some of even the more densely populated places of Lincolnshire such as Hog Roast Grantham, it is easy to see just why this part of the world has managed to retain a certain rural and rustic quality of which Thomas Hardy would be proud of (though in reading his works it is hard to imagine him ever leaving the safety and lushness of his beloved ‘Downs’). With our hog and spit roasts, it is by no means the case that we exclusively roast and prepare hogs. We also spit roast whole lambs, whole chickens and whole turkeys. As well as this, we love to spit and flame roast whole sides of beef, carved onto your plate and cooked to a lovely perfection. Due to our eclectic menu variety in the forms of meat, we love that the areas of Hog Roast Saxilby are so bounteous when it comes to fresh and gorgeous produce which we love to use on our spits. Along with this, our talented chefs enjoy creating side dishes and accompaniments with vegetables and salads which will blow your socks off! With great food in areas such as Hog Roast Chingford too, what are you waiting for?

What makes a really good catering solution? It is a question that certainly was not answered in the 70s and 80s at venues in Lincolnshire and indeed across the UK as terrible spreads of dreary tasting and unimaginative food were laid out for less than impressed guests at functions and parties. It seems that the all important aspect of great food was ignored, which was of course taste. Fast forward thirty or so years and things seem to be looking up and up in the world of catering in places like Lincolnshire. There may only be just over a million people in this part of the world but they do know what makes for a good catering meal and a hog roast just so happens to be one of the favourites in these parts. It is certainly some comeback for this medieval feast, which was unbelievably passed over in favour of cold pizzas and chicken legs for many a year. A hog roast Lincoln event is now very much the thing to do and there is certainly no shortage of taste when it comes to roasting of a bit of local pig. That’s right, all hog roast caterers are very keen to make sure that every time they cook up some pig roast, it has to be top quality and that has to mean using good quality ingredients.
One way to guarantee that you are getting good quality ingredients is to go local. Thankfully, in Lincolnshire there is no shortage of great quality ingredients. After all, this is one of the UK’s leading centres of agriculture with huge areas of land dedicated to farming, so finding a great supplier of good pigs is not going to be a problem for your typical hog roast chef, but what exactly is the caterer looking for in a good quality pig? Well, there are going to be a few things that they will be taking into account. One of those will be the size of the pig. The size of the pig will relate to the number of diners expected at the hog roast in Lincolnshire event in question, though even a reasonably regular sized pig can deliver a lot of meat, enough for over 100 people in fact.
But it’s not all about volume of meat, the fat is important too! Strange though it may seem, the amount of fat on the pig has a direct bearing on the quality of the cooked pig. You see hog roast is a meat that needs to be slow roasted, something that the Lincolnshire food lovers know very well. Slow roasting really is slow too, with a regular pig taking a good six hours to cook, which could mean the meat drying out if not careful. Cue the fat, as this is where it really makes a difference, preventing the meat from losing its succulence and also adding extra flavour. So, with one local pig and one very talented and dedicated cook, you get a great tasting Lincolnshire Hog roast every time.
