was named top in the Devon Street Food Awards after im­press­ing judges at the Nour­ish Fes­ti­val in Bovey Tracey.

The com­pany, which is based in New­ton Ab­bot, serves hand-stretched sour­dough piz­zas with fab­u­lous high qual­ity top­pings from its mo­bile oven. Piz­zas in­clude the Rus­tic Goat with Cor­nish Nanny blue goat’s cheese, red onion, mush­rooms, san marzano toma­toes, rocket and basil or there’s the sea­sonal Crab Spe­cial – white crab meat with a ri­cotta and spinach blend, along with moz­zarella, fresh red chilli, basil, rocket and a driz­zle of le­mon and dill.

An­other mo­bile out­fit do­ing great things is the Whid­don Wagon, a mo­bile fish and chip shop based in Barn­sta­ple. It’s been short­listed for the Best Mo­bile cat­e­gory in the 2019 Na­tional Fish & Chip Awards, one of only five and the only one in the south of the coun­try. Fin­gers crossed for the team for the fi­nals on 24 Jan­uary. A pre­vi­ous awards’ win­ner, King­fisher Fish and Chips in Ply­mouth is a Youtube hit after cook­ing chan­nel Sort­ed­food de­clared it the best in the South West. Owner Craig Maw also ap­peared on Amer­i­can TV in celebrity chef show Sim­ply Ming, after chef Ming Tsai spent a day cook­ing with him at the Ply­mouth chippy.

This au­tumn sees the launch of two Devon gins. Dart­ing­ton Crys­tal spent a day with Devon Dis­tillery’s Still on the Move to make its own lim­ited edi­tion Crys­tal Gin. It’s pre­sented in bot­tles which have been sand etched at the fac­tory. It’s avail­able from the Dart­ing­ton Crys­tal shop in Tor­ring­ton at £35.

The Ex­eter Chiefs Spe­cial Edi­tion Gin was made with Sal­combe Dis­till­ing Co. to cel­e­brate the team’s seven year win­ning streak. It’s the dis­tillery’s own Start Point gin pre­sented in an Ex­eter Chiefs’ com­mem­o­ra­tive bot­tle. It’s avail­able from the Sal­combe dis­tillery or at ex­eter­chiefs. co.uk priced £44.95.
