Outdoor event catering for your party, festival or event. British street food at its best.
Jack and Amy met while cooking in the Alps. Their mutual love of food has not only since inspired their marriage, but also allowed them to hatch an original culinary plan.
Since the credit crunch wasn't the best time to raise vast investments for a restaurant, they realized that their culinary plan could be small scale. Five days after this epiphany they bought ‘Fat Lads Greedy Van’ from a Northumbrian lay by. After a good scrub and a coat of paint Fat Lad had become the first member of the fleet and the company – the Laughing Stock – were now truly on the road.
Although Fat Lad himself must have found it quite daunting to be plucked from comparative roadside security and plunged into all manner of major events – from London’s South Bank Udderbelly festival, to a starring role in the Edinburgh Festival, to sojourns in more leafy locations such as Glastonbury and the literary extravaganza of Hay-on-Wye – he is certainly beginning to find his feet, and is now backed up with an ever-expanding fleet, all serving up something different. Meanwhile, to ease the strain of the company founders, Jack's brother, Amy's sister and Kimberley Johnstone have now been taken on as full time employees, making it family-run catering company of the most energetic and original kind, as well as a pioneering force behind Britain's street food revolution.
