Local catering company to open in new location
The Roasting Pig, a hog roast catering company based in Leicestershire and serving the Midlands region, is expanding its empire. Owner Steve Preston is set to open a new office in Nottingham, while maintaining operations at the original address. The move is designed to broaden the outreach of The Roasting Pig’s unique brand of catering.
What is the Roasting Pig, and what services do they provide?
With its multitude of available catering packages, the company offers delectable food at competitive prices, using only locally sourced British meats for its famed hog roasts. There are packages to suit every occasion, from weddings to family reunions to corporate events. For those looking for alternatives to pork, there are also lamb, beef, and chicken options available.
The Roasting Pig is especially popular for engaged couples looking for a stress-free catering option for their wedding day. The “Grand Wedding Package” includes a whole slow-roasted hog, a whole lamb seasoned with garlic and rosemary, sage and onion stuffing with apple sauce, buttered new potatoes, rolls, and salad and dessert options. If this doesn’t sound like enough — or if the couple is simply looking for a little more variety — they also serve stone-oven baked pizza for up to 200 guests.
While The Roasting Pig is a full-service operation — meaning they will take part in every aspect of the feast, from food preparation to carving to service — they offer a variety of packages to suit every need. Those interested in learning about the hog-roasting process for themselves, for example, can take a start-to-finish master course taught by the finest professionals.
Roasting a whole hog: the basics
To ensure that the finished product is as mouthwatering as possible, each whole hog is basted with cider before being slow-roasted for approximately six hours in a titan hog roast oven. The Roasting Pig consistently scores 5 out of 5 in food hygiene tests, a distinction that is especially important when working with the whole animal.
What the expansion means
As the flagship location provides service anywhere within a 50-mile radius of Leicestershire, the expansion will mean that the corresponding area outside of Nottinghamshire will now have access to all that The Roasting Pig has to offer.
The new office can be found at 12 Harebell Gardens, Bingham, Nottingham NG13 8TA
