Wow!  Feeling the love!   (Ahem, not able to resist the self plug here, I do private events so could park up at your house, or cook in your kitchen.  Follow me on @soulshackchicks on Insta, Facebook, or twitter no need for more than one, and my twitter is more basic).  It's been hard to not be on the road, my favourite hobby is watching people eat my food!  Right now I'm waiting to hear from councils if we are an event or a market.  A bunch of us Street Food people get together with good food, music and a bar in the evenings.  And then not sure if folks will come. One of my festivals didn't cancel until late in the game and I was on the fence about going.

Ok, so what does it cost to go to a house say.....in Fort William? Having stopped along the way at everyone else’s house?

I've followed you! I'm going to guess nothing is gluten free, but if we are ever in the area my husband would enjoy it. :)

Aw, thanks!  I always have GF options.  The Soul Smothered Chicken is GF as long as you get it on french fries.  A lot of the sides are GF too.. Everybody has to eat!  My pies are usually GF too, and some of my cookies.  BUT I do not sacrifice taste so you would never know, I make my own GF flour blend so that the "sharp" taste of GF isn't there.  I'm pretty passionate about making sure everyone can eat at my truck!  No exclusions!

Hello Mrs Roberts! 

I moved here and back and here and back and here (last time) from South Carolina.  Love is the best reason to live here, and its why I do, because I will never give up being Southern.  We are based in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, but can make special arrangements for further afield.  :) :)

Haha Fort William is pretty far away!  I have no idea how much it would cost, there would be a bunch of research needed,for instance,  I would need to find suppliers up there... And I'm not sure I could get Old Rosa up there in one days drive... Slow is my mojo!  And of course it would depend on what you chose to eat! 

But I could be up for a grand tour!  How fun! 

How did you end up there?

When I moved here we lived in Inverness, but job opportunities recently brought us to Fort William. Come up, pull into the drive.....I’ll pour you a drink while you relax and enjoy the views. I’ll light the fire pit, and we’ll figure out what’s for breakfast!

Kiss of Death, Margo, and I live quite near each other.  Jimbo is a reasonable distance (40 minutes away or so), definitely keep us posted when you are back up and running.  I’m pretty sure you can twist our arms and we will come and feast at whatever market you are at!

Yep this. And if the food is coeliac safe all our families can enjoy it too! And there's a good contingent of expats not too far away in Hampshire as well. I have a friend who has thrown some music events up in Hitchin (the location listed on IG) so I may be that direction too when life in public is safe again. :)

There are many of us located around here anyway.  What kind of food do you want to eat???  I've got my favs that's for sure!  haha we eat like kings.  Usually, we grab something from another trader or at the end of the night we swap leftovers.  It was funny when one night we we all sold out and the dumpling guy turns to me and says "We're going to have to grab a kabab on the way home."  Jack's Smoke Shack for Brisket.  The Weeping Chef for Burgers, but my husband's favorite is Cafe 77, Emilio's for Shwarma, Now Now Bunny Chow for South African,  Pink Pinata for Mexican, and Wood Fired Wonders for pizza.  And if your lucky because they don't get out much... Neapolitan Pizza - the best!  Did I miss a food group?  ooh Crepe Franglaise for crepes.

Margo, who is your friend?  Music Event... Rhythms of the World?  I was head of Stage Management at it for years!  Even when I lived in the US I came back for it.
