The year kicked off to a good start with some great press coverage for Deeney’s. Helping spread the word, Victoria Stewart reviewed our ‘Haggiswich’ urging readers to not ‘waste their time feeling queasy about haggis’. In this article we were delighted to be named as one of London’s best new sandwiches. We were also listed as ’One to munch’ on Victoria’s popular blog, London Street Foodie.
It seems Deeney’s was ahead of the trend as other eateries are also bringing back the cheese toastie. We were honoured to be featured again in the Evening Standard in Rosamund Urwin’s piece (pun intended) on ‘Toasties of the Town’. We were more than happy to be listed alongside Borough Market legends and big players in the molten cheese game, Kappacasien.
And the most recent piece hails from bonnie Scotland. The Herald focused on Carol for a piece in their business section. Half a page in print! To say Mother Deeney was delighted is understatement!
We are looking for some people to help on our bi-monthly Thursday market at Victoria and weekly on Fridays at St. Katherine’s Dock. There will also be lots of hours at Greenwich Market during the summer, weekend shifts and events shifts available.
This is a great opportunity to be part of the growth of a small street food company, where you will learn lots and have fun in the process. All employees will be well paid and well fed, that’s a promise!
If you or someone you know is interested please get in touch with Carol at email@example.com for more info.
January was a mammoth month for Deeney’s, as we served up a truckload of delicious Macsween’s haggis, neeps and tatties in memory of good old Robert Burns. Peeling and mashing over eighty kilos of root veg is a daunting task, and it took the finest of Speyside whiskys to numb the finger pain. Huge thanks to all who helped.
It was also the month we got our first brand ambassador thanks to our pals the Belchers. Meet Haggis the cat, proudly wearing his Deeney’s badge!
Every Friday in February we’ll be serving down at our favourite boozer, Camden Town Brewery. Situated directly under Kentish Town West Station, the brewery bar has the freshest pint in town as the latest brew is served up straight from the barrel. We’ve been told (and we of course did some experimenting ourselves) that our ‘Macbeth’ toastie is the perfect pairing to a pint, so get down and try it for yourself!
Watch out on Twitter for the weekly specials we’ll be putting on just for our stints at the Brewery. Our Steak Melt went down a treat last Friday.
Of course February 12th is Shrove Tuesday so a great excuse to whip up some batter and get imaginative with toppings! It’s a bit of an annual event down at Greenwich Market, so pop by and take part in their pancake race and sample some fresh Scotch pancakes from Deeney’s!
Finally, we’ll also be celebrating Valentine’s Day on the 14th with a special ‘sharing’ toastie… spilt it with your lover or go at it solo! More to come on this, so stay tuned!
That should see you through the month and safely into Spring!
Burns Night is our favourite excuse to celebrate here at Deeney’s! As well as celebration of our infamous national dish; haggis, neeps and tatties (washed down with a few whiskys), we are of course commemorating the works of Rabbie Burns. Every year on his birthday, January 25th, we gather to recite his poems, sample Scottish cuisine and have a wee reel on the ceilidh d- floor.
Deeney’s are affy excited as we’ll be getting involved with quite a few celebrations across London.
On Friday the 25th we’ll be cooking up the traditional faire at The Grafton in Kentish Town. This will be an excellent chance for regulars and first time triers of haggis to enjoy an informal Burns supper. Alongside our famous haggis toasties we will be offering a 2 or 3 course Supper that you can enjoy in the lovely function room upstairs. Swing by from 5pm – 20 Prince of Wales Road, London, NW5 3LG.
On to Saturday night, the 26th, where we will be cooking up a storm to feed the dancers and music lovers at the Nest Collective’s Burns Supper, held at St Marks Church Hall Colvestone Crescent London E8 2LG (just off Ridley Road).
Tickets are now on sale for what is definitely going to be a memorable night. A full Burns ceremony will be laid out for you, led by Master story teller and Balladeer Anthony Robertson. We will then serve up a feast of a 3 course supper including homemade soups and of course haggis, neeps and tatties! The tables will then be packed away to make room for an evening of ceilidh dancing with music from the renowned band the Ceilidh Liberation Front. A fantastic and guaranteed fun-filled night, everything for only £30! For tickets go to Nest Collective Website.
