We’ll be serving up our regular menu as well as some specials we’ve been working on… sneak previews to follow. Check out Street Feastival on Kiltr for more info. Let’s go Glasgae!!!
This week we received the exciting news that we had secured a permanent pitch on Broadway Market! After a year in the lovely Schoolyard, we graduated to the main street and now have a pitch snuggled between homemade chutneys and artisan breads, and right opposite the pub! The weather was beautiful for our first day and we met some lovely new customers whom we hope will make our Macbeth their new Saturday treat.
This fantastic news coincided with our first birthday at Deeney’s, so we had to celebrate with cake! We commissioned the talented bakers at Victoria Yum to make us a special cake. We were presented with a beautiful triple layered spiced ginger and orange sponge covered in cream cheese icing – so we dipped it in batter and fried it! Just kidding, though a haggis cake was discussed… maybe next time.
It is hard to believe it has been a year and we have long forgotten how cold winter really was. But we certainly remember the hard work we’ve put in and the experienced we’ve gained. Going into year 2 with secure pitches and products we are proud of should make for a fun and fruitful year. Bring on the year 10 anniversary!
Now that we’ve have taken on a new market that runs Monday-Friday in central London and need someone new to man and operate the stall.
This is an excellent opportunity to work at one of London’s busiest lunch time markets. You’ll have a great time, meet some brilliant people and get to indulge in some excellent food along the way.
We’re looking for someone interested in food, preferably with experience in catering and/or street food. You must be clean and tidy, trustworthy, friendly and responsible.
Start date: Beginning of October (Trial shifts available in Sept).
This is a permanent position and you will be paid hourly at a competitive rate.
To apply please send your CV to email@example.com
On Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th of July we are pretty excited to be serving up at Pimms on the Park on Potters Field SE1, near Tower Bridge.
This is set to be a brilliant event with 15 street food traders popping up and huge screens showing the men’s and ladies Wimbledon Finals. Expect Pimms, strawberries and cream and hopefully tears of joy from our Muzzah!
Stay tuned for our Andy Murray inspired toastie, should he make the final!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
