Our Philosophy

Who we Are...

It’s not just about a great Hog Roast...
but it started that way.

I am passionate about food. Any food business I was going to be involved with needed to have quality produce and sustainability at its heart.

We started doing Hog Roasts and BBQ's searching for artisan producers and always using fresh produce and quality bread. Many of our customers became friends and asked us to return for future events.

 

Our sustainability promise

 

We are also passionate about recycling and compostability, so at the beginning of 2019, we sourced Vegware® products made from palm leaves for all of our plates and bowls, which look and feel superb. Our vegetable starch-based cutlery is also fully compostable.

We do not use single-use plastic, it’s either reusable or vegetable starch based.

We have a whole floor in our warehouse that holds our hire stock of Crockery, Cutlery, Glassware, tableware and much more. Come and choose!

Going beyond

 

We expanded and included full wedding catering, not just evening food. We expanded again to include the hire of crockery, cutlery, glassware and table linen. In addition, we also bolted on a bar service serving a range of drinks for up to 250 people. Paella and pizza became popular last season (2019) and we now offer our own handmade pies and pasties with or without mash. Perfect evening food whatever the weather!

In 2021 we moved into our new Warehouse and Prep Kitchen on a business Park in Cam Gloucestershire.

This new facility has enabled us to expand the type of food we offer, We now make our own Empanadas with lots of fillings, these were introduced at the end of last season with great success.

At the Prep kitchen, we host tastings throughout February for confirmed clients.

Also in 2021, we catered a film crew for 35 days using our 15 ft trailer to follow the crew through three counties. That trailer is now retired and is now open for business next to the prep kitchen selling fresh baked and prepared food.

Pie and Mash have been hugely popular this season. As I write this in mid November 22 we are looking back at a very busy season. 2023 is also booking quickly.

We have survived Covid and lock-down, missed out on all Government grants and owe great thanks to all our customers who did not cancel but booked forward, sometimes many times.

We have just completed the purchase of Simply Desserts,  a top-level Artisan Dessert and Cake business. They have been suppliers of ours for some time and it is wonderful that this brand and its talented staff are now under our umbrella. Expect great Desserts and wonderful sweet treats from December 22

Lots more things to come !

Best Wishes
