The Cook Me The Money team visited Whitstable and Faversham in September 2012. The three teams set up catering vans in Whitstable harbour and sold burritos, tagine and a concoction called Love Puffs and in Faversham the teams offered locals chocolate cake made from vegetables, pancakes and tiramisu – but which dishes did the locals enjoy most?
