A cold winter evening is the perfect backdrop to a formal charity ball, especially when the venue is elegantly decorated and wonderfully cosy. Alongside the entertainment and venue, an important aspect to consider is the catering. At Hog Roast Othery, we have a formal dining package that is ideal for any occasion, including a winter ball.
Earlier this year, Hog Roast Othery was contacted by Sarah to provide catering at a winter ball that she is hosting. Sarah works as a fundraising officer for a Somerset-based charity and it planning a big final event for 2023 in the form of a winter ball hosted at a local hotel function room. The ball will include a three-course meal served by our team, as well as an evening of live music and entertainment. For the menu, our catering manager Alistair was hired to provide our formal dining menu for the occasion, since it is bound to be the perfect addition to the event.
On the day of the ball, our catering will begin with canapés served as the guests arrive at the venue. The canapés will include an Indian selection, mini pizzas, and mini fish and chips, among others. This is a great introduction to our catering and is a great way for the guests to enjoy a variety of dishes. For the main meal, we will be serving a delicious slow-roasted hog, accompanied by sage and onion stuffing, homemade applesauce, and crispy crackling. The mains will be accompanied by roasted potatoes, seasonal vegetables, and homemade gravy, to create a varied and hearty main meal. To finish the menu, the guests will be able to choose between profiteroles or chocolate torte for dessert. Each dish will be accompanied by English cream and fresh berries to ensure that they look and taste incredible!
