Kensington butchers delights the crowd at Portbello’s Road Food stall
A popular Kensington butchers sizzled and sliced as audiences watched on at Portobello’s Road Food stall this weekend.
Provenance Village Butchers used the demo-stall to show off their produce, display their butchering skills and draw passers-by with aromatic morsels created by guest chefs Margie Broadhead and Rachel Hytken.
London caterer Margie Broadhead, 26, cooked Wagu sirloin steaks served with simple sauces made from ingredients bought at the market.
“I really wanted to show that if you spend money on good meat, you really don’t need to do much to it to make it taste delicious,” she said.
The Road Food Demo stall is available to anyone who lives locally who can show relevant food qualifications by demonstrating their ability to council staff at a pre-arranged show-and-taste session hosted at the Salvation Army across the road.
Once approved, budding street chefs are given the opportunity to host the demo stall, available on the third weekend of every month, and if well-received by the public, a market pitch at the 2013 Best Outdoor Market in Britain – Portobello and Golborne Market, could be secured.
The variety of culinary experiences already demonstrated at the Road Food stall has been vast, from low income mums to TV Chef Ben Tish.
