Choosing food for corporate Christmas parties can be challenging, especially when you want to impress. Whether you’re organising your own office party or a planning a festive event for more than one business, hiring hog roast caterers is a great decision. Here’s why.
Professionals Make Life Easy
Professional catering companies are experts at ensuring the food side of your event goes smoothly, from the setting up and cooking preparation to the presentation and serving. Choosing a hog roast is one of the most flexible options when choosing a catering style. It can form part of a sit-down meal, buffet, banquet feast or even a live cooking station, depending on what works best for your Christmas party. It’s also one of the easiest ways to cater for a large number of people while remaining cost-effective.
Many people avoid corporate Christmas parties as there’s not much going on which appeals to them. Hog roasts are a great way to increase ticket sales or encourage staff to come, providing them with food options they’re not going to experience any old day of the week. Many organisations throw office parties to thank their staff for all their hard work in the year, giving them a chance to unwind and let their hair down, so it would be a shame if something like mediocre menus discouraged employees from attending.
Hog Roasts Suit the Festive Theme
It can often be difficult to find Christmas party food which fits the festive theme without veering into the tried and tested offerings you see year after year. Traditional hog roasts are perfect for enhancing your event, providing crackling sounds, the heat of fire, mouth watering aromas and seasonal food which is going to feel at home at a festive celebration. There aren’t many cooking styles or menu options which add to the party atmosphere quite like this.
Enjoy Unique Dining Experiences
By choosing a professional hog roast caterer who uses high quality, fresh ingredients throughout their menus, you can create unforgettable memories of your corporate function. Imagine crispy crackling cooked to perfection, a whole hog slow-cooked for at least six hours until it falls off the bone and delicious canapes and sides to make this an epic Christmas party. You could even add rotisserie chicken or turkey to the menu to create bespoke options ideal for your function. You can go as traditional or as ‘out of the box’ as you like if you use an experienced caterer who can offer a broad range of choices.
