Hog Roast Catering

Hog roasts are good, hog roasts and salads are better, but a hog roast with salads and a giant slab of the chocolate brownie breeze block…. well that just rocks….

Here’s a list of some of my favourite hungry hog roast salads and an idea of what we can put together for dessert to make it a spit roast banquet fit for a king (or queen).

Or

If you're feeling brave try the giant chocolate brownie breeze block!!! A slab of chocolate brownie as big as you can carry. We can even personalise it for a small fee.....

As a bit of fun we can supply a piping bag filled with royal icing so that your guests can sign the brownie before you eat it

If you're not a chocolate freak like me we do 'slabs' of lemon slice and almond slice. Just as big but not as messy!
