Hog Roast Ilkley Rugby Club – Birthday party

Hog Roast at Ilkley Rugby club where we provided an outside catering package of tasty hog roast sandwiches and canapes. The venue at Ilkley rugby club where we provided the hog roast is fantastic, great club and great people combined with delicious food made for a fantastic evening.

We cater for lots of events in Ilkley where our delicious hog roasts combined with tasty canapes for informal events are always very well received. Based just over the moors we supply local produce including pigs from Harrogate and bread from the master bakers in Guiseley.

The canapes work really well with a hog roast as they can be enjoyed whilst still enjoying a drink which is of course very important.  Above are some baby bruchetta with cream cheese, caramelized onions and chives.

Our chipolatas in hoisin with sesame seeds are another winner when it comes to complimenting the hog roast in Ilkley before we got onto the tasty hog roast sandwiches with crispy fresh crackling from the locally sourced pig.

If you are interested in an event in Ilkley, the Yorkshire Dales, West Yorkshire or the surrounding areas then please do not hesitate to contact us by email or telephone so you and your guests can enjoy our tasty locally sourced produce.

Hog Roast Nesfield – Between Ilkley and Addingham

The beautiful hamlet of Nesfield between Ilkley and Addingham on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales was the venue for The Hog Roasting Company to provide catering in the form of hog roast hire with a tasty free range pig cooked to perfection and served in sandwiches with apricot stuffing and our special dijon mustard apple sauce by our excellent team.

As part of the catering we served a selection of canapes for guests to enjoy while listening to the band and we were finishing roasting the free range pig in our new machine that is also available for hog roast hire on it’s own without the staff if you are interested in serving yourself, making a saving or run a commercial business where you may just want to hire the machine on its own.

The 3 piece band that accompanied us while we cooked and served the Hog Roast near Ilkley and Addingham were great fun, I tried to catch a video of them playing Jungle Books King of the Swingers which you can see in the clip below but unfortunately it didn’t come out quite as well as I’d hoped from my phone and reflect how good and how much fun they were.

Spooner Annual Cricket Match & Hog Roast in Addingham near Ilkley

We have our trotters crossed here at the The Hog Roast Roasting Company in the hope for good weather for our Hog Roast at the Spooner Engineering annual cricket match in Addingham near Ilkley, Leeds, West Yorkshire and on the border of the Yorkshire Dales.

Last year in the midst of some hot weather unfortunately a thunder storm brewed up and the heavens opened (twice) which put a bit of a dampener on the Cricket, although the beers were flowing at the bar and Hog Roast went down a treat.

Hopefully this year we will be blessed with a day of sunshine as we have seen so many of over this last few weeks and like these guys are enjoying below at Addingham Cricket Club.
