World Street Food – El Kantina Mexican Street Food

On trend and at Cooks is our World Street Food Series.  The Street Food movement in the UK is still relatively new but certainly here to stay.  Street Food is affordable; small artisan dishes usually sold on the streets or from vans using fresh local ingredients.  Almost every country has its versions and here at Cooks we will be bringing as many as we can to you. Come and learn to recreate the authentic dishes from around the world.

The epitome of what Street Food is all about is Mexican food. Mexican Street food or ‘Antojitos’ – literally meaning “little cravings – is fresh, tasty and exciting food both to prepare and to eat.

We are very excited to welcome El Kantina Street Food Company to Cooks with their fabulous, fresh, tasty and just a little bit feisty Mexican and Southern street food with a twist.
