Street food in the UK is escalating in popularity so much so that it’s giving dining out a run for its money. You can fine dine on the streets as it were for a fraction of the price – not only that you will savour some of the most tastiest and sustainable produce there is, and also street food vendors championing nose to tail meats, ensuring that there’s no food waste.
One such vendor that has adopted this approach is The Roadery. If you are fortunate enough to venture upon The Roadery’s pitch in Camden, you will discover bites with unusual yet tantalising ingredients. Sample menus include ox tongue taco with wild blackberry hot sauce, pig cheek burger, and Dexter beef and marrow patty burger.
The Roadery specialises in farm and forest to plate street food, serving up bites to foodies and revellers from the hatch of a classic Renault Estafette Van. Chef Dan Shearman believes in championing sustainable whole beast cooking, wild foraged ingredients, and some of the best organic farm and British artisan produce.
Ensuring that no food goes to waste, Dan Shearman says: “We believe in real, honest food that shows a respect for nature. We cook food with a strong focus on wild ingredients, ethical production and farming, while constantly discovering new ingredients. Our menu evolves with the seasons so is constantly changing.”
From foraging for wild ingredients, sourcing ethically farmed produce to bringing more of the forgotten cuts of meat on to the menu, The Roadery have documented their journey from sourcing to the plate in this film, On The Road.
The Roadery is also available for hire for private events.
