Richard Johnson

Naughty…But Nice

Maybe you know him for Runnin’ (Lose It All), his number one featuring Beyonce. Or La La La, featuring Sam Smith. Maybe you know him for his collaborations with Dua Lipa and Justin Timberlake, or his songwriting/production partnership with Emeli Sandé on her multi million selling debut album Our Version of Events. But here at British Street Food, we know Naughty Boy for his lamb chops. And his way with garam masala. Whenever he’s in the studio, he’ll take a break by going off to cook in his tiny kitchen upstairs. On a Baby Belling. Emeli likes his way with vegetables, and Mary J Blige loves his wraps. Serious. Yes the man is a musical genius but what he does with the keys to the spice cupboard gets us just as excited. We’ve had him turn up at the British Street Food Awards TWICE. Last time, we loved his chicken wings. And that’s why we’ve invited him to come back and cook up a storm at the finals of the 2018 British Street Food Awards — bigger and better than ever. Yes, he’ll be DJing on Friday night too — but you should never dance on an empty stomach. And with Loyle Carner bringing his Chilli Con Carner cookery school, for young people with ADHD and dyslexia on Saturday, this weekend promises to be one heck of a double bill.
