The London branch of the British Street Food Awards is setting up shop — in the Brent Cross shopping centre car park. They’ve invited us along to cook up a storm on the tarmac on October 29, 30 and 31, and then again on November 26, 27, 28. Expect some old favourites (such as Andy from Eat My Pies, Yianni from the Meatwagon, Petra from ChocStar, George from Churros Bros, Anh from BanhMi11 and Rob from Ca Phe VN), but there will also be newbloods such as Patrick from Hoxton Beach, Rob from Brewed Boy, Alec from Bhangra Burger, Gill from Creperie Nicolas and Gary from The Deli Company. We’re throwing our lot in with the Real Food people, who already do such a brilliant job at bringing top drawer produce onto the streets of London’s Southbank. All power to them — and they’re promising farm animals. In case the good people of Brent Cross don’t know what they look like. We’ll be there on Friday 10-8, Saturday 10-7 and Sunday 12-6. Please come along!
