Summer might be over for another year, but that didn’t stop Tanglewood Care Services Ltd from wanting to host a tropical themed party to celebrate 30 years of providing their residents with a high quality, comfortable and homely place to live out their twilight years! After being placed in charge of organising the milestone event, Suzanne’s first course of action was to get in touch with Hog Roast Alford and after speaking to our talented catering manager Rob about the wide range of bespoke catering packages we have on offer, it was decided that our classic hog roast menu would be perfect for the 50 residents and members of staff at Sandpiper Care Home.
After arriving on site in the early hours of the morning, the Hog Roast Alford team were greeted by Suzanne who invited them through to the main function room where for the next four hours their main focus was on creating a little slice of paradise for the celebrants. Using our lightweight and portable Hog Master Pro, the team effortlessly slow cooked the whole pig – which had been evenly scored to create a perfect layer of crispy crackling – atop of a bed of homemade savoury stuffing. Never ones to leave anyone out, the team also made an effort to create a selection of handmade and brightly coloured grilled vegetable skewers with optionable haloumi for those following meat-free or plant-based diets.
Finally, it was time to add the finishing touches to the buffet and just in time for the 12 pm dinner bell, the Hog Roast Alford crew had lined up the condiments and sauces, laid out the rich chocolate cupcakes and gluten-free rolls and placed the real China crockery at the end of the serving table. When presented with the meal, Suzanne was blown away by how quickly the team had managed to rustle up the roast and wasting no time, she and the guests started to dig in!
We’re pleased to announce that the food was a huge hit among the party, and Suzanne has since been in touch to thank the Hog Roast Alford crew for making their anniversary so wonderful.
