Never knowingly standing still, we at Argyll Hog Roasts are always developing our catering repertoire, enabling us to offer the public the best choice for any occasion. This winter we launched the latest addition to our range, Crêpes.
Already we have taken the Crêpes to the Oban Winter Festival, the Skipness Winter Craft Fair and the Montrose Christmas Spectacular.
We are really enjoying the versatility of Crêpes, it is a great platform to showcase so many great ingredients (and we are getting to be culinarily creative with sweet flavours, which is a lot of fun!)
Over the festive break we will experiment with new combinations and update our website to include this new option.
Next up we are taking the Crêpes to the Hogmanay Party at Craignish Village Hall.
Last weekend’s outing was for the wedding of Marie and Tom. It was exciting because this was our first wedding where Paella was the main catering option. All geared up with two large paella pans we provided a chicken and chorizo paella for those carnivores amongst the guests and a garden vegetable paella for the vegetarians.
We began with WHYW (actually this was the last weekend in July but we hadn’t told you about it yet so we are including it now.) It was Wet and Wild and a lot of fun!
Next up was the infamous Ardfern Pirate Parade
Then we were at the Mid Argyll Show in Lochgilphead in glorious sunshine (a rare sight this month)
And in amongst all that we also provided the catering for three weddings this time in Fort William, Strachur and Tarbert.
You can’t blame us for wanting a quiet end to the month. We aren’t doing nothing though. You can find us at dot 10 on the Artmap Open Studios Trail this coming Friday to Monday, supporting my talented wife and providing nibbles and hot drinks for all you intrepid trail followers.
Whoa, let’s just pause a moment to appreciate our latest adventure.
Imagine the scene.
A stunning remote beach on the Island of Colonsay. The sun is shining. A babbling burn makes its way down to the sea. And there is happy people, everywhere.
This was the setting for Fi and Ali’s wedding.
We could go on and on and bore you with lots of words about the atmosphere, music and how good the food was but we feel the best way for you to get a taste of the event (other than having been there) is just to look at the photos below.
It may have taken a 2hr ferry journey to get us here but it was worth every minute, Islay is a stunning place. We came over to cater the fabulous Fiona and David’s wedding in the Rhinns Hall, Portnahaven.
And they wanted the works.
Canapés, Hog roast, Paella, accompanying Sides and evening Buffett for 300 people.
It was lovely to unexpectedly meet up with so many of our Mid-Argyll friends who had travelled over for the Wedding.
It was another great outing for the Argyll Hog Roast Event Catering team, aided on this job by local Island Chef Zakk, Antonia and friends.
We also owe a huge thank you to Laura at the An Tigh Seinnse for putting us up and making feel so welcome.
