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

New issue of Courier Magazine 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 just so happens that in the latest issue the clever team behind it has thrown out... Read More

London street food bites 2014

Welsh Rarebit from The Little Welsh Rarebit, 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 few weeks with vertigo and have slowly been recovering, and I’m glad to say that I’m pretty much back up to normal London... Read More

New seller – Anna Maes Southern street food

Mac and cheese from Anna Maes Word up. I have a London street food seller to tell you about. Like many of London’s street food businesses, Anna Maes was started by two ex-office workers Anna Clark and Tony Soloman who wanted less desk and suit-type stuff and more home cooking. Together they did a fair bit of travelling and later turned an idea they had into a really fun, buzzing little stall (and now a gold van) that has featured at loads of... Read More

Street fooding – back with a vengeance

Street foodies, we have a problem. I am beginning to wonder whether I have been in a Pitt Cue Co coma for the last month. If I have, it would explain why there have been next to no updates on LSF recently. (It may also have something to do with the fact that the sellers pages have had a few technical problems so I can’t add any new names at the moment.) Anyway here I am with a few things to share… Jerk chicken and coleslaw at the Brixton... Read More

World street food festival: Jubilee weekend

Piadina at the World Street Food Festival, Southbank. Credit: Andre Dang SEE the pic above? It’s not some sort of taco. It’s not a burrito. It’s a delicious Italian wrap known as a piadina (or piada, depending on where you are in Italy) filled with smoked prosciutto and gorgonzola cheese that has been made especially for the World Street Food Festival this weekend. If you are not bored of hearing me bang on about it, I’ll give... Read More

Arancini Brothers and other news

Piada wraps waiting to be filled... Life on a market stall On Saturday I spent the morning working with Gastronimica deli at Borough Market where I learned to make Italian piadinas in preparation for a stall I’ll be helping out at for the Evening Standard next weekend (World Street Food Festival, Southbank, SE1 – I’ll be there Friday evening and Saturday lunchtime) Germana showed me how to choose ingredients that complement each... Read More

Real Food Market, Southbank: Back in town

It had a little break over Christmas but the Real Food Market behind the Southbank Centre (Waterloo Station side) is back this Friday until Sunday and hopefully forever more. Sadly Petra Barran’s excellent Choc Star van will no longer be there for when we need an instant sugar fix but do go down to try stuff from the other street food sellers like the Arancini Brothers (one of my absolute favourite festival food traders for their risotto ball... Read More

Pitt Cue Co goes permanent

One of my favourite street food outlets from this summer was Pitt Cue Co, a silver airstream trailer based on the Southbank which was responsible for shifting some of the best pulled pork, beef brisket and BBQ ribs in London. If you got there early enough, you could get stuck into pork sitting happily on top of crunchy coleslaw, fennel-scented pickles and excellent charred sourdough bread – all packaged up in a cardboard box. Also memorable... Read More
