Whitby’s Magpie Cafe features in a new Street Food Cook Book, which has a compilation of recipes and stories from some of the north’s finest street food specialists, artisan traders and vendors.

Known nationally as one of the best places to tuck into fish and chips, the Magpie Café is now taking its finest fish and seafood onto the street.

The Pier Road stall offers an enticing menu of ‘grab and go’ classics, with all fish sustainably sourced from well-managed fishing grounds and all of it is cooked fresh on the stall.

With such demand for its famous seafood – queues can regularly be seen streaming out of the door in the summer – the Magpie team decided to offer a taste of their legendary fish in their new street food setting.

The Street Food Cook Book features the recipe for Magpie Café Street Food’s popular crispy cod bap with spicy seafood sauce – great for holding in your hand as you stroll around Whitby.

The 128-page full colour book features recipes from a few other well-known places such as smokehouse Smokin’ Blues, burrito bar Street Food Chef and Buddha Belly which specialises in Thai street food and was the brainchild of MasterChef 2012 contestant Sai.

“We are so proud to be a part of this exciting and diverse celebration of the best street food recipes,” he said.

The Street Food Cook Books retails at £10 and is available at The Magpie and online at
