"Thank you so much for everything you did for us at the wedding. We had nothing but endless compliments about the quality of the food and the friendly service you both provided. The leftovers the next day were all eaten up as well by lots of very happy family members.
The food really was amazing and we could not recommend you guys highly enough to anyone. Steve, Groom.

"Nick and Nikki sell the most amazing food in a sturdy cardboard box, with wooden cutlery. The pulled pig and crackling was out of this world, as was the halloumi I with tarragon mushrooms, served in a freshly buttered bun, with delicious salad and sweet potato chips. Delicious from beginning to end, what a gastronomic treat! Food from Shellfish Pigs, yes please! Please, Sir, may I have some more? Susan, Guest at event.

What kind of cuisine do you offer?
We call it "Cornish Streetfood" as our dishes are influenced by our travels and loves from all over the world, but we use great Cornish produce to make them all.
