Hoagies

I am a streetfood trader. Cooking out of a vintage 1972 Chevy Stepvan. The food I serve is American smokehouse BBQ with some asian twists. My experience ranges from working in Michelin starred restaurants, 5 star hotels all over Europe as well as owning and running a bistro in Sweden and a café just outside London and my passion for cooking has taken a new direction with streetfood where I can create and cook in new places everyday and meet new customers. Passion, respect and hard work is what drives me. New and old technics, low and slow getting the best out of the ingredients and letting the quality of produce I buy speak for itself. Hoagies is a streetfood trader with a relaxed vibe. In Philadelphia a large sub roll is known as a hoagie this is where we took our name from because we are serving hoagies with delicious fillings as well as flatbreads, salads and the traditional all American hotdog.

Just to say thanks for the buffet on Friday night it was perfect. Yvonne and assistant did a fantastic job and many of guests have commented on the food and have asked who the caterer was. I will be more than happy to recommend Osprey Catering. Thanks again – Dorothy (Barrhill Bowling Club Gourock April 2015)
