I’m lucky that every month that Digbeth Dining Club host one of their events in a local village 10 minutes up the road. We decided to go over last weekend on the hunt for delicious food and trying to get Rufus used to crowds.
Digbeth Dining Club take over Codsall village once a month. It’s not as busy as the weekly event in Digbeth and has fewer stalls, but, they do change quite regularly. Digbeth Dining Club hosts some of the best street food vendors across the country and last week, I discovered my favourite yet.
Savoie Street Food focus their food on my favourite thing in the world; cheese. All their food is based around raclette, a swiss cheese that’s melted and scraped to give an avalanche effect. Rob & Jed, owners of Savoie Street Food, are the vendors and create beautiful dishes all based around raclette. They discovered the dish whilst snowboarding and bought it to the UK.
All Savoie Street Food’s dishes are based around potato and raclette, which is right up my street. I mean, what is better than cheese and carbs? It’s the foodie version of chips and cheese; except you don’t need to have drunk 10 VKs to be able to stomach it. We went for the Ham Hock, which is boiled potatoes, dijon mustard, chilli, onion, gerkins and ham covered in the avalanche of melted cheese.
It was delicious. The potatoes weren’t falling apart but were incredibly soft. The mustard, chilli and gherkin combination was literally melt in the mouth. Anything like this is my foodie heaven so I knew straight away I’d enjoy it. But as I sat on the bench trying to keep my fiance and dog away from sharing it, it was like fireworks exploding. If there was ever a dish to represent me, it would be this.
