Culinary Delights Added to This Year’s Fringe

This year sees the addition of some of the area’s most exciting local food being included as part of the Stroud Fringe festival. Managed by Laurence Kapoor who also runs Two Peas Street Food with his wife Rosa, the food traders have been carefully selected to reflect the ethos of the Fringe; championing local ethical businesses of the very highest quality.

Stroud, United Kingdom, August 25, 2015 --( The Fringe team was excited to discover the huge variety of great street food available locally and have worked hard to ensure that all packaging used will be compostable or recyclable too.

Laurence explained a little more about why he felt motivated to get involved; “Growing up in Stroud I’ve always enjoyed the Fringe and I’ve loved being involved. The street food scene has really come on leaps and bounds over the last few years in the UK. In previous years, festival food was dominated by cheap, low quality, greasy foods. Nowadays it’s all about high quality artisan products, made fresh and using the best ingredients.”

The Fringe food offering will include ice cream from local favourite Harriet’s Jolly Nice, wood-fired artisan pizzas by Sienna Pizzas and Velo Bakeries, and Kingshot Coffee, Bison Kitchen, with their authentic American-inspired BBQ, Killins Kitchen, who source all their free-range burgers and hotdogs locally, as well as a selection of delectable Indian treats from Stroud Farmers’ Market favourite Girish Patel.

There’s something for everyone – Pie Eyed’s freshly baked handmade pies, Daniel’s Greek olives and Cotswold Hills ice cream. And the menu’s will also include foods to tempt the fussiest of little eaters, which parent’s can feel comfortable are nutritious and tasty - without breaking the bank.

Stroud Fringe food traders will be popping up all over the town over the course of the Fringe weekend - Happy Eating.
