We are Ben and Rachel — a husband and wife team with an entrepreneurial spirit, who thrive on a challenge. After getting married in 2012, we set up our own recruitment consultancy. The business is a success, helping support our family as it has grown from two to four.
But now we’re ready to follow our real passion. Ben has a lifelong love of food and a boyish obsession with fire. He’s in his element when combining the two, whether he's grilling big joints of meat on the barbecue or baking pizza in a wood-fired oven. So at Smokin’ Street Food, we combine the two by making hand made, freshly made to order, stone-baked pizza with the main components of our dishes being smoked and flavoured by fire.
Luckily, Rachel has a flair for veggie dishes. As well as keeping Ben on track, she’ll be making sure our food appeals as much to vegetarians and vegans as to meat lovers.
We try to make everything from scratch, which means hand-made dough, home-made sauces and no shortcuts. We are health and environmentally conscious and keen to keep that at the heart of what we do, and will source from local suppliers as much as possible.
With our amazing pizza oven we Pop Up in our local area of Sherfield Park every Friday evening, Elvetham Heath on a Tuesday and often attend Chineham Business Park on a Thursday lunchtime. We make pizzas fresh to order featuring a selection of classics and our own home-smoked signature toppings. This may be anything from smoked cheddar, bbq belly pork or fire-roasted veg! We are always changing our menu so best to follow our facebook page or instagram to keep up to date on what is happening on a weekly basis!
At the weekend we take bookings for private parties and events, we have become very popular for childrens and adult parties alike, hosting for as little as 20 up to 100 guests. We attend a whole range of events from marathons to comedy nights to campervan rally’s and really love the fact that pizza goes down so well literally anywhere!
If you would like to talk to us about having a regular Pop Up in your community or an event please get in touch with Ben and Rachel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
