The street food revolution comes to town

Bedford StrEAT Feast

2018 has been marked the year that street food becomes sophisticated, and Bedford’s joining the party! 

This month a new initiative is launching to celebrate street food, called the StrEAT Feast, so is it time to change up your Friday night takeaway with something more fun and adventurous? I think so! 

StrEAT Feast will have an array of international flavours from established food trucks and caterers in the local area, coming together to celebrate good food and great company. Not only will there be a huge selection of tasty dishes, there will also be a bar and live music. Sounds good, right? 

I’ll be heading down on the first event on Friday 28th September at Riverside to try some of these flavour bombs, take some snaps for our Instagram and will let you know how it goes, but first, I’ve been speaking to Natalie, whose brilliant idea this was: 

Local business owner Natalie Cuozzo came up with the idea, after spending a large percentage of her time at events in London and surrounding Counties with her popular treats business Crumb De La Crème. She soon realised there was a gap in the marketplace in Bedford for a regular street food event, giving other local caterers an opportunity to showcase their delights and Bedford locals to get a chance to try them.

“As a local trader at many street food nights in other Counties I wanted to bring the idea to my hometown of Bedford and have a vibrant night for the community each month. With the new Riverside development it was the ideal picturesque location for the occasion.” said Natalie Cuozzo.

With these events happening every last Friday of the month for most of the year, including a unique Christmas event (less than 100 days to go now!!!), this really is an exciting time for food in Bedford. I would really encourage you to back this event, support local traders and foodies alike. Surely this will be better than your Friday night usual Chinese? 


Here are the details of the first event:
