Hazelnut cannoli from Casa Cannoli

How to scoff a Sicilian cannolo in under 10 seconds + is London street food here to stay?

So…. London street food. We all want a piece! Let’s all start a stall and make millions! Mm hmm, sure. Sadly, folks, while there are tons of success stories, passion alone won’t run your business, as this Canadian former street food trader and restaurateur atests here. Aaanyway, recently I’ve spent a fair bit of time […]

London street food panel discussion, podcast, and recent best bites

I’m pointing out the blooming obvious here, but there are a hell of lot of delicious things to eat at London street food markets at the moment. Yeah, yeah we’ve heard that before, mate. But, seriously, think about it: five or so years ago there just wasn’t the gigantic variety of street food available that […]

In memory of Wilkes McDermid – where these London Street Food traders are now

This time two years ago a fine food photograher friend Wilkes McDermid, who was probably the biggest supporter of the London street food scene, left us. Last year, with the help of lots of people, we ran a tribute post to him on this blog. This year, I thought that rather than look back that […]

Has Kerb’s new Camden market got what it takes to serve North London street food?

Camden’s a funny old place isn’t it? I both love it – I often wind up there for gigs of some description – and I can’t bear it – all those slow-moving throngs of tourists – but mostly I’m confused by it. I often wonder why its tat-filled tourist shops attract anyone at all. As […]

New London Street Food Market – a Q&A with founder Mike Norledge

Boom! Hampstead’s getting a new food market, folk. So what’s the deal? In short, the new London street food and produce market is run by the same people behind the successful Primrose Hill market, so there will be a mix of fresh produce and hot street food to take away. I’m particularly looking forward to breakfast […]

Epicurean at St Katharine Docks: London street food from around the world

Now that street food is, er, trendy, and has been for a while, the volume of emails or tweets I get from people saying ‘I’ve quit my job and started a street food van – do you have any idea of where I can trade?’ has increased a lot. And, call me cynical, but with […]

Wilkes McDermid: remembering the best supporter of London street food

A year ago today a man named Wilkes McDermid left this world. As well as being a brilliant friend to many he was also someone who was well known by lots of people in the London street food world and wider food industry because of his continual and enthusiastic support of their work and food. […]

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. […]
