Sitting at Home Being a Little House Wife - Start Mobile Catering
My partner and I have bought our own burger van. The thing is the old owner who we bought it off didn’t really declare it to the authorities?
So he therefore didn’t need any licence or certificates.
He basically went to the horse show every month and brought home a healthy £500.
Now the van looks to us like it’s in lovely condition and he has just recently put new roof in there and it’s lovely. He has got 2 water things you heat up and store boiling water, 2 fridges (I’m assuming one for meats and others for cans) he got a griddle.
But I’m worried as when we first looked at the van he lit a candle that was fragranced.
I didn’t question him on this just thought it was odd.
When we went back next time the candle wasn’t lit but the van smelt like he had been cooking in it all day! ( I know this wasn’t the case as his generator has gone bust ) . So I’m thinking could this be from the griddle. Will I need to get a new one and how do I tell?
Maybe he has just not cleaned it good, leading on to that, how do I clean it without ripping it all apart by scratching it and poisoning people. I know this allot and I feel very cheeky but u did say ask to know anything.
Right my main questions is “hot water supply “He has none..
He has 2 sinks, water containers but no "hot running water”.
We have been told this is a legal requirement, how on earth do we do that? He says we can’t run something from his engine? As its too much, and his generator is not powerful enough. Maybe that makes more sense to you than me.
Another thing I am mainly worried about it any tips on cooking the food in a special way. Like how to flip the burgers and how to NOT break the eggs (do you have to turn them over) or can they look like they hardly cooked.
Also what type of gravy is the best; we have been told that if you cut little slits into the bacon fat while it cooks it will stop it from rolling up. Have no idea if that is true. I am set to go on the van later just to try some stuff out. Ahh well free burgers for my neighbours.
I’m so sorry I have gone on a bit but it’s just so much to take in.
Hope u can help in some sort of way xx and I think you’re very brave the way you went at it on your own. I may just have to do that now in two weeks when we said we will start it all up, as my partner still has a job at the moment but I don’t.
Instead of sitting at home being a little house wife I would much rather be out there bring us money in. So he said I may just need to do it myself.
