The 15th – 16th September sees the return of the British Street Food Awards and as part of this year’s prize for the vendor who scoops the “Best of the best” award, our very own Tommi and Mark, are going to be helping out with their best advice on growing their burgeoning street food emporium into a mini fleet, (if of course that’s what the winner would like to do).
In fact Tommi is also on the judging panel helping to decide who from this year’s clutch of newcomers is cooking up the best street food in Britain.
There will be a head to head cook-off of all of the finalists who have been specially selected by a nationwide team of food journalists and bloggers, so standards are set to be high. Tommi will be joined at the judges table by Gizzi Erskine, Yianni Papoutsis and Fay Ripley with Richard Johnson keeping them all in line. To give you a flavour of what went on at last year’s awards, check out their video from Harvest at Jimmy’s.
The British Street Food Awards will be happening alongside 2 boozy @tweatup events, Ginstock and Rumstock on the cobbled streets of East London, outside Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant. It’s set to draw an extraordinary fleet of vans, trucks and trailers to the area as well as live music, art and bunting.
