Talking of Street Food, as I did on my last post, there will be an abundance of the stuff at the free Moretonhampstead Food Festival:
Dan the Fish Man has many a story to tell, so go and seek him out at the festival and he may crack open a lovely oyster for to you to try. Personally, I love his kipper and marmalade sandwiches – what better breakfast, in fact, that is what I am going to have when I arrive! Watch him in this video cooking lobster. He sells wet fish for every budget, in addition to piscine pate, and oysters and mussels from Torridge.
Caribbean Food – Here’s a video (click on the blue words) I took at the Powderham Food festival of ‘Fancy That’ home-made Caribbean food. It is extremely difficult to find Caribbean food in Devon so if you want a little tropical spice at lunchtime find her stall. Janice makes everything herself and I can recommend her goat curry.
Brazilian style BBQ – El Gaucho is a family run, South American style BBQ catering business based in Devon. I haven’t tried them yet but how can you go wrong cooking wonderful meat “churrasco” style on spit roast over a charcoal and oak BBQ? They serve it in a fresh roll with “chimmichuri” sauce which is made from finely chopped parsley, garlic and crushed tomato with oil, lemon, salt and pepper. Mmmmm.
Indian – Oke’s Kitchen is cooked fresh on site in massive Indian kadais (or woks) and, would you believe it, a full-sized charcoal-fired tandoori oven – barely portable but well worth the effort. I look forward to tasting their wares.
Fish Soup – Cockleshell Deli make a mean crab sandwich, see it on this video I took, plus yummy pies and a famously good fish soup, just the ticket on a cold day.
Or you could always make up a picnic from the many other food stalls- sourdough bread, charcuterie, some fresh oozy cheese…..
