Running a charming hotel in the heart of Kirriemuir (A.K.A. the ”Gateway to the Glens”) means that Sharon is no stranger to hosting wedding receptions; and looking for a helping hand with her most recent booking, the Thrums Hotel manageress stumbled across the Hog Roast Dunblane website. After scrolling through our testimonials from previous clients who have been left feeling over the moon after using our services, Sharon picked up the phone and rang our friendly customer service team to discuss catering options for the big event.
In keeping with the theme of the couple’s traditional style wedding, catering duo Sampathi and Tam recommended our classic hog roast menu which has remained a popular choice among brides and grooms up and down the country for decades. With its selection of succulent meats, gluten-free rolls, flavourful condiments, a meat-free option and crockery provided by us, this menu adds a relaxed and informal touch which makes it easy for newlyweds and their loved ones to enjoy their very special day while the Hog Roast Dunblane team takes care of the rest.
With the nuptials fast approaching, Sharon kept the catering crew up to date with the couple’s plans and when the big day finally rolled around, the Hog Roast Dunblane team arrived at the reception venue six hours in advance to begin preparations for the evening meal. Taking advantage of the rare sunshine, the team set up their catering gazebo in the hotel’s outdoor garden area and quickly began slow roasting a selection of meats including rosemary seasoned spring lamb, juicy gourmet sausages, sirloin of roast beef, 100% beef handmade burgers, locally sourced free-range chicken and of course, a whole pig. While the meats sizzled away in our Hog Master Pro, the crew laid out a variety of gluten-free soft floured rolls and wraps and prepared a plant-based alternative of grilled vegetable skewers with optionable haloumi.
Before long, the newlywed pair arrived at their reception venue followed by their 100 guests who were eager to dig into the mouth-watering buffet after the long and exciting day. Overall, the event was a huge success and choosing from the selection of dishes on offer, guests enjoyed channelling their inner chefs by combining various flavour combinations using our famous snack in a roll system.
