This Thursday (13 August) TravelSupermarket will host a free street food festival in Shoreditch. The International Street Food Challenge 2015 will give guests the chance to sample a variety of authentic and delicious dishes cooked by a variety of vendors from around the world and to vote on which they think serves up the tastiest dish.
Vendors for the event were selected after “showing the best in class street food from their country,” with a number of the vendors even travelling from far and wide to compete, including French chefs Copper and Wheat from Copenhagen who are flying in their own brand of potatoes and duck fat to ensure their dishes are 100% authentic. Other confirmed vendors are Kothu Kothu (Sri Lanka), La Tua Pasta (Italy), Orange Buffalo (USA) and Vinn Groute (Seychelles).
I’m looking forward to giving it all a browse (and a bite!) and seeing if I can glean some streetwise inspiration for my own home cooking. Stay tuned!
The International Street Food Challenge 2015 will be held at The Back Building, 148 – 150 Curtain Road, EC2A 3AR on Thursday 13 August from noon to late.
The event promises to be a popular one. So to make sure you don’t get turned away at the door take a sec to download your free ticket at travelsupermarket.com/c/holidays/street-food.
