Whether you’re organising wedding catering in Hampshire or planning a private party, hog roasts are a great choice to drum up excitement on the day. However, choosing food for a corporate event can be a little more tricky because there could be other factors involved than just having a good time. Careful consideration for your corporate event menus can help to make or break the day, and you can even align catering with your goals for the occasion. Here are some reasons to choose Hampshire hog roast caterers.
Create an Incredible Atmosphere
If you’re planning a Hampshire event, creating the atmosphere you want is always a challenge. However, live cooking and hog roast menus are always inspiring, whatever the season, whether you’re looking for a summer corporate event menu or something a little different for your office Christmas party food. The visuals, sounds and aromas that hog roast cooking achieves can deliver a real buzz in the room. It’s perfect for anything from a business networking event where everyone needs to interact to a charity fundraiser in which you want guests to feel good and donate. Hog roasts are ideal for both small functions (so consider one for your team building day) and large events where a lot of people need to be served fast.
Hampshire Venues Ideal for Hog Roast Menus
If you’re keen to offer attendees a delicious hog roast, you don’t just have to stick to one option. Think about what works well for your venue and how menus could be tailored to your theme. For example, Hampshire has lots of coastal venues in places such as Calshot, Gosport, Portsmouth and Southampton, so ask your caterer if there are any seafood options which could be added to the menu. If you’re trying to make sure the event feels really informal rather than ‘corporate’, you could even choose a venue with lots of space for an outdoor hog roast. Think about a beautiful barn setting (often used for rustic weddings), which you can find in places such as Fareham, Whitchurch and Petersfield.
Ideal Serving Options for Corporate Events
People often worry that hog roasts aren’t ideal for corporate events, where high standards are required in terms of food presentation and serving styles. However, if you use a professional company who specialises in this area, they will have perfect options to suit the tone of your event. This means hog roasts can be served as part of a formal sit-down meal, exciting grazing tables, ‘help yourself’ style buffets or live chef stations, providing delicious serving options, even if it’s a stand-up event.
