Alfresco Concepts Ltd the UK Distributor of the Big Green Egg has converted a traditional Fairway Taxi to become a mobile cooking platform. The taxi complete with 2 Big Green Eggs seated within a customised Royal Mahogany work bench, will be travelling the length and breadth of the British Isles attending events and festivals.

The Big Green Egg ceramic BBQ is only available in British racing green and as such we have converted two of Britain’s most iconic vehicles into mobile platforms for cooking, entertaining and educating people as to the unique cooking abilities of the Big Green Egg. The taxi has had the roof partially removed but has retained the original features such as fold up seats in the back, the intercom, and the original driving cab interiors.

The taxi joins it’s bigger sibling the customised Double Decker bus that has played host to many distinguished chefs including 3 Michelin star Clare Smyth, 2 Michelin Star Daniel Clifford, 2 Michelin star Nathan Outlaw, 1 Michelin star Simon Rogan as well as Rick Stein and the FDEK team when providing food for the Fat Duck’s annual staff cricket party.

The taxi received a warm welcome in London recently at the press launch of Meatopia UK, the upcoming meat lovers festival in September.

Managing Director David Ezrine says, “People try to hail us regardless of the fact that the light isn’t on…..they’re intrigued to see what’s cooking inside the EGGs. We’ve even had a request from one couple to use it as their wedding vehicle! We have to pay the congestion charge since it’s not a licensed taxi anymore but at least we have a slow cooked meal to eat at the end of a long journey!”
