A cornucopia of Cornish cuisine will be on offer at a new street food event which is coming to Penryn's recently reopened Rebel Brewery next weekend.

Street Eats, Beats and Beer Vol 1 has been organised by Penryn based street food vendor Nick Archer, of the Shellfish Pig, and will take place at the brewery on Parkengue on Saturday, April 8, from 11am to 6pm.

Rebel Brewery will provide the venue and bar, with a DJ playing all day and a pop-up record store, as well as food and drink from six local traders.

Bango Kitchen will be offering fresh, hand crafted sushi and juicy dumplings, alongside fragrant broths, and punchy herb salads, while Salvador Thali, Cornwall's first Indian street food vendor, will provide zingy flavours and crunchy textures made with home roasted spices and hand made chutneys.

Slice of the West will be coming to Penryn with handmade, woodfired pizzas created using their own slow rising sour dough and homemade sauces, and the Shellfish Pig will have lashings of locally sourced pork and seafood.

There will also be coffee from the Espresso Mobile Barista and drinks from Cecil on Ice, a vintage 1972 Bedford CF Whitby Morrison ice cream van offering cold cocktails and tasty treats

Nick from Shellfish Pig said: "This event aims to attract the best street food that Cornwall, and eventually the south west, has to offer. We want to ensure pitch fees stay fair to the traders so that they can spend their money on making great products. We believe that great events do not have to mean high pitch fees to food vendors, which seems to be the current trend."

The first event is being put on with a shoestring budget, and Nick hopes it will be successful enough to turn it into a regular happening.
