A well-travelled and experienced chef who originally trained in patisserie and confectionery, Stanley Crump takes his inspiration from street food served in Europe and the Middle East and then adds his own touch.

A frequent traveller, Stanley takes a cookery class in whichever country he visits to pick up tips, flavour combinations and menu inspiration. This leads to dishes such as Moroccan lamb meatball tagine, traditional falafel, massaman beef curry, raclette, and Lebanese chicken tawook. Great Food Club had an absolutely delicious, flavour-packed mezze of tabbouleh, ‘slaw, beetroot hummus, falafel and harissa chicken served with homemade flatbreads. The flavours were authentic and punchy, the colours were vibrant and the smells were reminiscent of the street stalls of Jerusalem.

In street food tradition, the prep and cooking is generally done in full view of the customer, allowing you to see the dish progress from ingredients to finished serving and to interact with the cooks. This is an important part of the Stanley Street ethos – to understand how the dish was prepared and for it to be an experience from first slice to final mouthful.

Any pre-event cooking and prep is done from his wonderful shed in Barnwell – a small but perfectly kitted out kitchen with a place for everything and everything in its place.

Stanley adjusts his menus according to the seasons and availability, using locally produced ingredients where possible. He sources the more exotic items from Peterborough market and the Middle Eastern food stores around Gladstone Street. He serves a delicious merguez sausage, which is made for him at Kingsthorpe Farm, Polebrook.

Stanley will cater for events across Northamptonshire, Rutland, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and beyond. Keep your eyes open for the Stanley Street stall at festivals, private parties, weddings and occasional pop-up events, including the monthly sofa sessions at the Old Forge, Cranford.

If you want the sights, smells, tastes and diversity of global street food without having to travel too far, Stanley Street is the place to go. The only downside is what to choose…

    We have just enjoyed a joint 60th birthday party and Stanley catered for the evening. Stanley and Paula are a great team and everything was delicious! So many of our guests say how much they enjoyed the meal of Sri Lankan Thali – it was wonderful.
    Stanley kept in contact with us frequently and gave us all the advice we needed for the evening.
    I would definitely recommend Stanley Street Food to everyone.
    Many thanks for a helping to make a great evening special Stanley and Paula.

    I can’t speak highly enough of Stanley Street. They catered for our Summer Ball at Isham Cricket Club and were a pleasure to deal with throughout. The food was excellent, they were so nice and helpful and they fed 130 people with no fuss. I would highly-recommend them to anyone and we will definitely look to use them again in the future

    Thank you so much for providing the food at my recent 40th Birthday celebrations. Nothing was too much trouble in terms of our needs before, during and after the event. Your Moroccan Lamb shanks were delicious and we have had so many comments about the quality of the food at our event.

    Fabulous canapes and paella for 60 – prepared and cooked in our garden! Food was absolutely delicious. The organisation, preparation, serving and clear-up were all perfect and discrete. My guests loved the ‘theatre of the cooking’ under a colourful gazebo and the taste of the food too !! Thoroughly recommend for your gathering.

  6. Avatar Nina Langford says:
