National News: Street Food Cookbooks – The Word on the Street

By Malika Dalamal |


If the idea of eating food from the back of a van doesn’t sound very appealing, you’ll be happy to hear that the trend for street food is taking a new direction – namely coming off the street and into your kitchen. Following the launch of Jez Felwick’s The Bowler’s Meatball Cookbook, other top mobile food vendors including hamburger joint Meat Liquor, pulled pork specialists, Pitt Cue Co, Manchester-based ice cream truck Ginger’s Comfort EmporiumPizza Pilgrims and The Meringue Girls are currently penning their own books.

Nicky Hill, the Senior Commissioning Editor at Simon and Schuster told theGuardian, “[Street food vendors] make fantastically tasty food with limited space and equipment – and with budgets as small as their premises. In these increasingly tough times we find that books such as these appeal to a wide range of people who are keen to find new ways of cooking resourcefully and with a sense of spontaneity and fun.”

Food trucks are coming in from the cold.
