A city solicitor and a music industry tour manager have launched themselves on to Newcastle’s vibrant food festival scene with a new venture into Peruvian street food, called ANTICUCHO.

Adam Hedley, 28, and 32-year-old friend Dave Glover opened up at The Boiler Shop Steamer behind Newcastle Central Station, a monthly event which celebrates food, drink, music and art from around the region.

A solicitor at Bond Dickinson, Hedley has previously worked as a chef in one of Terry Laybourne’s kitchens, Bistro 21 in Durham, while completing his legal practice course at Northumbria University.

He said: “Cooking has always been a passion of mine and ANTICUCHO is something Dave and I have been planning for a while, so we’re really excited to be hosting our first ever food stall.

“The Boiler Shop Steamer is the perfect backdrop to our food because you can have our ‘flavour on a stick’, as we’ve been referring to it, in one hand and a drink in the other while enjoying the entertainment.

Glover added: “If our food goes down well with the customers, hopefully they’ll have us back at future events, and we’re already catering for a couple of parties this summer off the back of inquiries we’ve received through Facebook.

“Our slogan is ‘Barriga llena, corazon contento’, which translates as ‘Full belly, happy heart’, and that’s exactly what we hope to do – so watch this space.”
