Welsh or Irish Hog Roast!?!

Greetings from BFM at Continental Market Belfast at City Hall. Today I’m trying the Welsh Hog Roast signature serving, the whole hog baguette (£6).

I was chatting to John who has been in this game for 40 years. He has a small farm holding near Caerphilly in South Wales,and for the last 30 years has perfected the art of the hog roast. He uses a local pig from near Londonderry crossed with the Welsh White breed hence Welsh/Irish Hog roast!!

The Welsh White Breed has a uniform layer of fat which is the best for roasting and hence crackling.

Everything is made from local produce eg the onions,Bramley apples,sea salt,pepper herbs,spuds and baguettes made by the master patisserie at the market (I will b speaking to him soon,father and son with loads of experience ).

John is a busy man he is in at 7am every morning preparing the hog.He rubs it with sea salt,salt,pepper and herbs. Then skewers it and cooks on rotisserie for 8 hours!!!

It is amazing, don’t taken my word for it,come down and sample the baguette to the whole roast dinner!!!
The unit is shaped like a Welsh Cottage and stays in Ireland!!!!
