Alternative to a Hog Roast – The Carvery Bar

hog roast carvery bar

We’ve all been at an event, be it a wedding, fete, or corporate do, where the food provided is a hog roast. Hog roasts have been gaining popularity for the past few years, as they have a certain retro appeal which chimes with both hipsters and those of us who remember them from the first time round. They also make a (somewhat controversial) centrepiece as well as a talking point. Yet their appeal is waning for a number of reasons, and this has led event coordinators everywhere to search for a hog roast alternative for social gatherings.


One option only


A hog roast might suit some of your guests, but it won’t satisfy them all, and usually when the catered food is a hog roast, that is the only option on offer. This can be shortsighted for a number of reasons. First of all, there are religious restrictions on pork that mean some of your guests can’t eat it. Secondly, vegetarianism and veganism are both on the rise, which puts an event planner at further risk of alienating guests not only by neglecting to provide a vegetarian option but also by installing a rotating animal carcass as the event’s centrepiece.


5-a-day?


Today’s society is better educated about nutrition than ever, and so you will find that vegetable sides are almost universally appreciated amongst party goers. Not only that, but vegetables round out a plate and perfectly complement meat mains to make for an overall satisfying meal. Of course, vegetarians and vegans will thank you for providing for them also.

Back of the queue


Another way in which hog roasts can leave guests feeling shortchanged is that some will get a much nicer cut of pork than others, depending on how quickly they muscle their way to the front of the queue when it’s announced that the food is ready. This is not the nicest atmosphere to foster at a supposedly fun event, where guests should feel carefree and sociable.


A smarter & tastier option


carvery bar is a great alternative to the hog roast

A solution to this would be to pass by on the hog roast and instead opt for a carvery bar. Our menu allows you the choice of mouth watering hand carved beef, Pork sausages or roast turkey, along with delicious vegetable sides like roasted vegetables & roast potatoes with gravy. To top it off there are two sumptuous desserts on offer; New York cheesecake or chocolate fudge cake.

Diversity like this in a menu lets you cater to all of your guests’ needs, and the set-up of a carvery bar allows for mingling and chatting between guests as they fill their plates. In this unique way, a carvery bar adds to the atmosphere at any type of event, from weddings to fetes to corporate events, such as team building days. Contact KK Catering today to find out more about our delicious carvery bar for your next event.

    We booked the street food van for our wedding on Saturday 26th February 2022, mostly because of the fantastic choice it offered our guests.
    The van arrived on time, set up faultlessly and was ready to serve at the time we asked for.

    … More guests were blown away by the service, the fabulous humour of of our server and the way he organised them all and got their orders together quickly.
    The portions were generous, the food was hot and the quality was excellent.
    I’ve never catered like this before and truthfully was nervous about greasy and unappealing foods. But this was the best we’ve ever seen and tasted and I will certainly be using them again for future events.
    Thank you so much for adding to our special day you . Our wedding was wonderful and you certainly contributed to that.

    We had a mobile fish & chip van for our Golden Wedding Celebration. The guys arrived on time, were very friendly & obliging. They got on with the job quickly and were ready to serve on time. Everyone was very happy with the service … More and food. We had let them know about special diets in e mails in advance and these were well catered for. Would certainly recommend them.
