"Petra Barran has changed the face of British cuisine"

Debrett's 500, 2014

The interest in street food as an industry has become huge:

  • How to get into it
  • How to stand out from the ever-growing crowd
  • Why it has become so popular
  • Where it is going

Having been a part of this industry since 2005, my experience of how it works, why it works and what works is deep and varied. My consultation service taps into this knowledge in order to provide an express trip to understanding this niche world. For focused and strategic advice that is tailored to your particular area of need/interest have a read of the below.

TALKS / PRESENTATIONS

There is so much to say about the culture of selling food on the streets. It's about eating and enjoyment, but it also brings into question so many areas of urban life - from DIY culture to new localisms, food-driven regeneration to mobile economies. It's about food and business, but it's also about community, independence and the quest for meaning in a rapidly changing world.
