Swarling Manor, Wedding
This weekend Spitting Pig Kent catered for a wedding at Swarling Manor, Petham.
Months of working with the Bride and Groom and close Family resulted in a lovely day although we started working in a thunderstorm!
The agreed menu was a picnic in the lower gardens of the beautiful Swarling Manor consisting of 3 different pates selection of hand made cheeses from the Canterbury cheese makers and a home made chutneys from the bride and groom, Hand made pickle onions and piccalilli and an assortment of breads including jalapeno and sunflower and cranberry wholenut tiger loaf French stick, bloomer and whole grain.
The sun had come out and reception drinks were served alongside the picnic everyone relaxed and it took some encouragement to get them to eventually come to the converted barn and attached marquee for there reception meal of hog roast.
Salmon steaks wrapped in filo parcels cooked in white wine lemon and dill sauce served with roasted new potatoes, greek salad, herb tomato with mozzarella and a creamy handmade coleslaw.
Toasts and a speeches were made, then wedding cake of vanilla and strawberry topped cheese cake together served with white chocolate and raspberry cheese cake, teas and coffees.
This resulted in everyone being happy and dancing the night away to a five piece jazz band.
We have won the attention of the owners of the venue and potential customers being shown around before the guests arrived back were marvelled at the way we were producing the slated cheeses and pate loafs whilst the pig was being cooked with its head on.
