KERB   Ever since I joined Twitter I've been coming across this organisation and their street traders. KERB's aim is "Making Cities Taste Better". They organise markets and workshops and all sorts of other stuff based around street food and they champion the cause of the mobile food kitchen. Having been in the mobile catering trade myself in the past, I am following their progress with special interest.

reference books

I used many sources to make sure I got my facts straight while writing these pages but I went back time and time again to the following three books which I thoroughly recommend.

  a regional inventory of over 400 British foodstuffs which have been produced in one region or town for more than three generations

  cheese connoisseur Patrick Rance's definitive guide to the regional cheeses of Britain - an essential book for anyone remotely interest in traditionally made food.
