Street food is becoming more and more popular. It’s eaten at markets, at special events, in disused warehouses, at festivals and on the high street.
There are dedicated events popping up all over the country. One of the biggest in Scotland is in Glasgow near the banks of the River Clyde. The Herald on Sunday went along to the Big Feed Street Food Social to see what all the fuss is about.
Johnny Stipanovsky, 47, from Govanhill, who is the founder of the Big Feed Street Food Social, works as a diver for six months of the year – but when he’s back in Glasgow he makes hot dogs.
“I bought a wagon and opened FireDog about three years ago as a wee winter project and it grew arms and legs from that. I went from doing the odd weekend to it being booked out solidly.
“About two years ago we started working with Glasgow City Council on small street food events. But Glasgow being Glasgow the weather isn’t great, so I looked for something indoors.”
