Podcast Summary (It's way better to listen)
Robin Leeburn opens the box on London’s freshest street food menus and looks at how KERB’s three-month trader training and mentorship programme is helping London’s best new street chefs gain a foothold in the big city.
We meet the next generation of food stars at the KERB Workshop – a day-long where would-be street food traders gain valuable know-how from some of the capital’s leading industry names. Among the speakers is Huw Gott, founder of steak favourites Hawksmoor, who shares his knowledge of how a people-first company can pull together to create success.
Workshop attendees describe why they want to turn their passion for food into their own business and finally, we learn first-hand the transformative power of street food with Liberty Kitchen, providing opportunity and work for current and former inmates at Pentonville Prison.
