Exciting news for all fans of the street slinging side of life. On 22 and 23 April, CRASSH will be hosting a food hawkers’ conference. Bringing together in one spot a wonderful spread of speakers, all gathered for the purpose of discussing the resilience and timeless appeal of the selling of food on streets.
Regardless of era, climate or economy, the world is – and has always been – peppered with curbside cuisine in one form or another and those interested in food and culture, cities and commerce, remain gripped.
If you’re anywhere near Cambridge for those dates, or if you feel like a little East Anglian sojourn, it looks to be well worth the trip. From talks on Frost Fairs in early modern London to ‘Psychology and entrepreneurship in the street food sector of Vietnam’, the two days sound like they’ll be a riot of information to the mind hungry street food fanatic.
