This Summer I have been lucky enough to not only lose myself at a few festivals but eat and drink my way around them too! Whether it be grabbing a coffee after dropping some deckchairs off or purchasing my third portion of Mac and cheese at the Deershed festival I have definately had my fair helping of delicious Street Food over the past few weeks.
Over the August bank holiday weekend Harrogate’s Valley Gardens got served their slice of the Street Food Revolution with it’s own Street Food Festival which we got to hire the deckchairs out for too!
Not only do I find it amazing how such culinary delights are created in such a small place often in the middle of a field knee deep in mud but also how creative these restauranteurs are at building a stage for their hungry audience.Where once food from a ‘kiosk’ may have used to have been a greasy burger or a hot dog, we now get top enjoy raclette from an old ski gondola, sausages from a horse trailer and pizza from the back of a Landie.
In a sea of festival food vans you have to stand out , maybe I am a salesman’s dream but I truly believe my hungover decision of what to have to soak up the Cider is purely based on the originality and quirkiness of the framework on which it is served from.
