Interview: Dominic Cools-Lartigue, founder of StreetFeast London street food parties

Happy new year all. I hope you’ve all been enjoying Dry Gin-uary as much as I have… Now for this post, I thought I’d do something a bit different. I don’t know how many of you are familiar with Courier Mag, which celebrates independent businesses all over London… anyway it’s a great publication. And it […]

Round the world through London street food: memories of 2015

‘When we eat, we travel,’ wrote fellow food writer and friend Mina Holland in her book The Edible Atlas. I’ve thought about that a lot since then, and especially in relation to this blog, because in London we are so lucky to be able to eat food from countries as close by as France or Spain, […]

British Street Food Awards 2015 – what we ate

It was a smasher of a weekend. The British street food traders came, they cooked, they conquered. Meanwhile people like me went, ate, were part of the winning team in Lisa Markwell’s ‘Have I Got Foods For You?’ quiz (yes, this actually happened), and then waddled home again. Not bad going for a grey Sunday. […]

When to hit the London street food markets*

The great thing about London street food markets is that mostly they suit both those who like to plan and those who like to be spontaneous. I’m a bit of both, so I’m probably the ideal customer (but then we knew that anyway, because I blog about street food). Sometimes, I’ll pick a day and […]

London street food bites 2014

Right-o, I’m well aware that it’s been a while since my last post on Jez Felwick’s new street food joint in Shoreditch in September. Someone the other day asked if I still wrote the blog. The cheek of it! Well, the short answer is: yes. The longer answer is: I was off work for a […]

He and his black bowler hat have popped up […]

Wapping Market

How can more people eat London street food? More markets…

It has taken me a wee while to add Wapping Market to the London Street Foodie mix because we decided to review it in the paper and I didn’t want to let the beans out of the bag on here first. The fact is that when I visited it a month or so with a […]
