The Shellfish Pig: Olive Magazine “Best Streetfood Chef” Finalist

We’ve had a fantastic year so far, so when we found out that Nick had been nominated and had made the final 4 in the “Best Streetfood Chef” Category of the Olive Magazine Chef Awards we were blown away! You can read all about the awards on the Olive website by clicking here

The Editor of Olive magazine, Laura has already made the trip down to Cornwall and has been to visit our van. Nick cooked up 3 tasty dishes for her in the most glamorous of locations (a car park, in the Cornish mizzle!). We have to wait a while to see who wins but to be honest,Nick is just chuffed with the final 4, against some pretty tasty competition nationwide!

The ethos of the awards is lovely and it is well worth having a look through all the categories! We stole this paragraph from their website as we think it shows what olive Magazine do and are trying to achieve with their awards – fantastic stuff!

“For the past 15 years olive has championed the chefs that are making a difference to the way we eat in the UK. Instead of focussing on ‘celebrity chefs’ and ‘TV cooks’, we’ve sought out the professionals behind the pass who are breaking a sweat, innovating and pioneering. And this year, for the first time, we’re celebrating them officially – with the launch of the olive magazine Chef Awards, in association with Dark Horse Wine.”

We are still very much in the midst of our busiest year and we are absolutely loving it, so to get this bit of recognition is a great spur to carry on with our plans and with our ethos and positive attitude towards using the best Cornish produce to make the tastiest streetfood menus for weddings and events; here in Cornwall and the south west! Hope to see you at the van soon!
