Edinburgh Food Social Kickstarter

Crowdfunding can be a pretty tricky thing to get right. For every runaway success, like the Edinburgh Food Studio or Union of Genius, there are many more that don’t quite build inexorable momentum in quite the same way. As with most things in life, the trick is to learn lessons, lick any wounds, and come…

Save the Mighty Mexican

Via the wonderful world of social media, I was really sad to hear what had happened to one of our popular street food traders, the other day. At the weekend just past, the Mighty Mexican, a family run street food truck serving a variety of burritos to Mexican food fans, got caught in a cross-wind…
