One of the most anticipated announcements of in the run-up to SFTOC is always for what food options we’re bringing to the table this year. As well as the various fine food establishments up and down Chapel Street, we make sure to get a couple of specialist street food traders in to make the day extra special. This year, we welcome back some of our favourite culinary experts and a couple of new faces too. Have a look at the full selection below – with a couple of options potentially to follow on the day…
Fire & Salt BBQ Co. are Manchester based BBQ fiends. Marinated meats slow‐cooking above wood and charcoal in our barbecue pit. That’s what Fire and Salt BBQ Co. is all about. Everything we cook is inspired by traditional Southern barbecue and we aim to bring you the best smokey flavours. We add some of our own flair as well as our handmade rubs & sauces to make sure it tastes that little bit special. It’s bare bones barbecue, done right. http://www.fireandsaltbbq.co.uk/
I love food. I love using the best ingredients to make simple dishes that explode with flavour. I love the world we live in, that’s why I use fully compostable disposables made from plants. I love spice, Indian street food and I love art and music. So you will find me on Sunday 3rd May at the Sounds Courtyard hub in the Mill, feeding people from a shed with wholesome veggie fayre. Come and find me if you’re hungry, I love other things too but food…..mmmmm, now we’re talking :) Food by Kim.
Mother May I, a new vegan food venture based in central Manchester, currently set up as a catering business that can provide food at a host of events; festivals, gigs, corporate hospitality, private dining etc. All MMI food is handmade, locally sourced and served in compostable packaging. The Mother May I philosophy is to create delicious food using produce gifted by Mother Nature herself and delivering it in a way which will not only benefit your body but your conscience too.
Drum and Baste Wood fired catering are back again this year, together with their familiar ‘Rocket Oven fired artisan Pizza’ available in Meaty, Margherita and Veggie options. This time Drum and Baste will also be serving a delicious Chicken Curry as an alternative dish to try and keep the queues down. This will be served with flat bread baked fresh in the oven or baked potato subject to availability. www.drumandbaste.co.uk
Dirty Dogs have a passion for good hotdogs; seeing that no one else was selling them in Manchester and feeling some love for the whole ‘street food/pop up’ scene, they’ve decided to give it a go. They also got a mission – feeling that hotdogs in this country give this American institution a bad name, they’re determined to save us from a surfeit of substandard sausages. (via North West Nosh)
“There’s a chance we could make something happen here that is by real Salford people” Linda Robson
A delicatessen, a café and sometimes a bar, the aptly named Deli-Lama is out to create a new Salford vibe. Standing out on The Crescent, at the corner of Bexley Square, the deli-café-bar encourages artists to exhibit on its walls, sell local goods and host a few gigs, as well as creating the cutest food fare in town… (via Salford Star)
