Luke Cockerill is an emerging talent, tipped as one of the ‘ones to watch’, by many in the industry. Bundobust’s Vada Pav has received accolades such as, one of the best burgers in the world and 1 of 20 burgers you need to eat before you die, and now Luke Cockerill will be putting a twist on this classic vegetarian burger, specially for the festival.

Expect mashed potato with kimchi, coated in Korean hot sauce and topped with soy infused pickles, spring onion and ginger relish. The exclusive special will be served during the festival with a limited number of 30 available each day (15 available to order from 12pm and another 15 on offer from 6pm). There will be a Japanese beer pairing option, including Hitachino Nest Saison Du Japon by Kiuchi Brewery and festival goers can also enjoy Luke Cockerill’s salt and pepper okra fries. Both the Vada Pav and the okra fries will be available for £11, with all profits being donated to Action Against Hunger.

Marko Husak, co-owner of Bundobust, said:
“It’s great for Bundobust, a humble street food joint, to work with acclaimed chef, Luke Cockerill, to create something special for Manchester Food & Drink Festival”.

Throughout the festival, Bundobust will also have a special dessert on offer from Manchester’s sourdough and Viennoiserie bakery, Pollen Bakery. The Gajar Halwa Danish will consist of a flaky, crisp, croissant pastry filled with custard and topped with warm Gajar Halwa and crushed pistachios, when served.
