Hog Roast Inverness often caters locally of course but sometimes we are asked to provide the food for an event or party out of town or even in another county. We were recently booked in for a Bonfire Night function out of our local area, where we would prepare, cook and serve plenty of tasty food for around a hundred guests at a cricket ground. While we are well-known for cooking delicious hog roasts and spit-roasted meats, for this party we were asked to provide our highly popular Southern Slow Roast Menu, so that the guests could enjoy lots of different foods.
Our Southern Slow Roast Menu features your choice of three meats, all marinated in advance and cooked low and slow on the day, and served alongside four side dishes. This is a terrific idea for when you need to satisfy varying personal tastes as well as dietary ones, as this menu offers a vegetarian option if needed too, and we can also cater for alternative diets. Meat-wise, this menu lets you choose from Creole pulled quarter of spiced lamb, Cajun-spiced whole roast chickens, barbecued pork butt, Texan 24-hour beef brisket, and Louisiana sticky pork ribs. In terms of sides, you can choose four from skin-on Southern-style whole baked potatoes, Cajun sweet potato wedges, a seasonal green leaf salad, corn cobettes, a Greek Salad, mac and cheese and Memphis-style crunchy coleslaw. Plus for vegetarians, our halloumi and vegetable skewers are served with wraps and a Tzatziki sauce. There are so many dishes with this amazing menu that it can’t fail to please all of your guests!
Darren from the cricket club booked us in and on the day of the event, Hog Roast Inverness arrived in the afternoon, set up our equipment and began roasting the trio of meats that had been selected – pork, lamb and chicken. With wedges, mac and cheese, two salads and veggie kebabs to serve as well, we had plenty of scrumptious dishes to prepare and cook over a few hours.
By 7.30pm, the queues began and we were kept busy serving for more than two hours and then once the fireworks were set off, Hog Roast Inverness discreetly cleared away and left the satisfied guests to enjoy the rest of their night.
