• The Chef •

Chef Chris has years of experience working in the industry. Chris has experience working in award winning and Michelin starred restaurants across the country, with his culinary talents and exciting flavour combinations we can offer a quirky and unrestricted dining experience at any event.

"I have been lucky enough to work in some top places with top chefs. The Fat duck was the best restaurant in the world, The Hand & Flowers still remains the only two star pub in the world. These are great claims to have and I went into those great restaurants like a sponge, longing to soak up as much information, ideas and recipes that I could. After almost ten years as a chef and having worked up to being Head Chef level it was time to go it alone. Street Food is a trend that can't be avoided and the revolution was just too tempting, I had to get involved. Restaurant food with my twists available wherever!'

Hot off the press...

We've been very pleased to see many people saying great things about Shoot The Bull.

Have to say @ShootTheBullUK mackerel was Michelin starred street food!

Cooked watermelon is an absolute revelation. Hats off to @ShootTheBullUK for the amazing Slow Cooked Belly Pork. Wish I’d taken a photo!
— Richard Madden, via Twitter
I tried your food yesterday at the peddler market in Sheffield (I had the Mackerel) and I just wanted to say how impressed with it I was. Honestly, the best thing I’ve ever eaten from a van/tent, and better than most restaurants to be honest. Keep up the good work. I hope and know you’ll be successful!
