Sat in a deck chair, overlooking the sea, it’s hard to think of anything nicer than a bag of chips and a pickled egg… but a new generation of street food traders are shaking things up a little. And this Bank Holiday, in Falmouth, the best traders from across the South West are competing to prove they’re shaking it up better than anyone else. So it’s Cornwall vs. Devon vs. Somerset vs. Dorset in the regional heats of the 2015 British Street Food Awards.
In Falmouth’s Events Square, the thirteen best traders from the region will be cooking up their signature dishes all weekend from a weird and wonderful fleet of vans, trucks and trailers. The public then vote for their favourite. There will be live music and DJs (curated by Universal Music) with live newspaper reviews hosted by the editor of the Independent on Sunday. There will will be a street food/beer matching experience from Sharp’s, and Have I Got Foods For You, the Festival’s take on the topical news quiz. With better prizes.
