At Bark.com, we like to ensure that we are providing the best service we can to customers via our marketplace, but sometimes some requests are little bit too niche, even for our big community of traders and service providers.
It isn’t a job for the squeamish and incredibly different to the usual types of requests that we receive, but a couple is hoping to find a chef who is willing to help them prepare a wedding breakfast made from roadkill to help offset their carbon footprint.
The request stated:
The environment is so important to us, and will continue to be as we settle down and start our family. Although money isn’t too much of an issue, weddings are resource heavy and result in so much waste that we don’t want to have any part in that.
We know that this isn’t something the ‘average’ chef would be happy in helping us with, but are hoping that someone with the right skills and our same passion for the environment can step forward and help us out. We have sourced the meat, so all they’d need to do is come up with some delicious recipes to put on a roadkill banquet for our 30 guests, we have approximately 20kg of roadkill meat in our freezer!
We have budgeted £5,000 for catering so we hope that this is enough to convince someone to help us with our unusual request. We need someone who obviously has experience in preparing wild meat and is able to skin, butcher and prepare the food beautifully.
We personally have been eating roadkill meat for about three years now, neither of us wanted to go vegetarian but were becoming increasingly concerned about the state of the environment. That being said, not all of our friends and family agree with this lifestyle choice so we would need the chef to be able to ‘dress it up’ so that our guests are unaware of what they’re eating.
Hopefully we can sit down for a consultation with someone amazingly skilled soon where we can discuss this further. If you think you can help, or know anyone who can, please, please get in touch!

“One of the best things about weddings is being able to make it your own – whether that’s with the decor, venue, or the food. I guess in this instance, the couple really want to show their commitment to not only each other, but to their lifestyle.
“We pride ourselves on being able to connect customers with the perfect professional, no matter what the job is. Hopefully this couple can find the right person to help make their big day exactly how they want it.”
