As a nation of booze lovers (we prefer the term alcohol connoisseurs!), there’s no shortage of celebrations dedicated to our love affair with adult beverages, but while you might have thought the most favoured spirit in the UK would be whisky – or even vodka- it turns out, 29% of folks prefer a good old G&T. This rise in the popularity of gin has resulted in a booming industry worth £1.9 billion and an increasing demand for country-wide festivals where lovers of the drink can tickle their tastebuds with a dram of the good stuff.
But knowing that trialling different drinks from all over the world can really work up an appetite, event-planner Sarah asked Hog Roast Lutterworth to serve our delicious southern slow roast menu at the latest festival which saw gin lovers from up and down the country unite for the very special occasion. Featuring a selection of American-inspired dishes, moreish side options and a series of boozy accompaniments, Sarah couldn’t wait to see the end result and before long word soon circulated among the guests that they were in for a Hog Roast treat!
Working towards the 6 pm serve time, Hog Roast Lutterworth arrived at the venue bright and early to prepare the highly-anticipated buffet and banding together, the crew effortlessly whipped up a mouth-watering feast which centred around the trio of meats which included BBQ pork butt, Texan 24 hour beef brisket and cajun spiced whole roast chickens. Adding the finishing touches before the guests came pouring in, the team laid out side dishes of Memphis style crunchy coleslaw, Greek salad, mac & cheese and buttery corn cobbettes which were paired with the Jack Daniels smokey sweet BBQ glaze and Stubbs legendary Hickory Bourbon BBQ sauce.
The efforts of the Hog Roast Town catering crew certainly paid off and after arriving to celebrate the festival, Sarah and her event-goers were quick to fill their plates with generous helpings of the delicious grub! In fact, the food was so highly praised that some of the guests seemed to forget the real reason they attended the event and instead, returned to the gazebo for seconds (and thirds!).
