I have always been happy to give advise and help to anyone who has asked, here are a few words from people I have helped:

"Paul was there on my first day of trading when a steady pair of hands and third person perspective was just what I needed. He was able to provide advice on equipment and even helped speed upservice in terms of how I presented my food.

The difference between Paul and other street food traders I've worked with is that Paul brings 20 years of top

cheffing experience to the truck/gazebo. This is invaluable. Not only can he cook delicious, beautiful examples of every

kind of cuisine, but he can also help with the business side of things like menu design, costing, mise en place and a whole

host of of considerations you might not have even thought of yet!" Alex, The Beefsteaks

"Whilst doing some research on set t ing up our business, we came across Paul and his lovely H van

who was trading at London Southbank. Although he was very busy, he still afforded us the time to

talk to us giving us some very helpful and effective advice towards setting up our business and our

own H van. Others we had spoken to hardly gave us the time of day.We find Paul to be very

approachable, friendly, witty and charming and they are also the reasons we would consider him a

good friend of ours." Matt & Gemma, Kalopsia Coffee

"From the day I started planning to start my own business, I sat at Paul's van asking hundreds of questions. He gladly obliged,

and luckily for me still does to this day. I like to think of him as my Street Food Uncle (complete with dodgy dress sense

and bad dancing).. Always full of invaluable advice, lending me 98% of his kitchen equipment , and feeding me

some hot damn good food! Top bloke, and a testament to my favourite phrase "trader spirit"." Dan, The Roadery
