British Street Food Festival 2015

by Richard Johnson Friday, November 6, 2015

British street food has undergone a relative revolution in recent years. No longer just confined to the chip van, street food in Britain now showcases the best and freshest local ingredients in delicious food inspired by cuisines from across the world. With the British Street Food Festival just around the corner, we take a look at what you can expect.

More from this series:

Richard Johnson is the godfather of British street food.

After four regional heats, the final of the 2015 British Street Food Awards will see all manner of trailers, trucks and vans rolling their way to London’s O2 for a massive food fight on 5 and 6 December. This year’s Awards is set to be a feast for all the senses this winter as they will be teaming up with Universal Music to create the first ever British Street Food Festival.

Street food vendors from across the UK will be rustling up their unique dishes and showing off their culinary handiwork for judging by both the public and British Street Food experts. The winner of the 2015 People’s Choice Award will be chosen by the public and announced at the finals. Other categories including Best Snack and the Best Of The Best will be voted on by Giorgio Locatelli, of London’s Locanda Locatelli, Neil Rankin of Smokehouse, and actress and award-winning food writer Fay Ripley.

It’s not all about food though. Universal Music have hand-picked a selection of the best live acts and DJ’s to perform at the festival and Street Food – The Artisan Musical will be making its debut. Food fanatic and music producer Naughty Boy will also be cooking up a storm in the famous Naughty Kitchen. In addition, the weekend will feature street food crazy golf, plus food quizzes (with prizes) and Channel 5’s The Gadget Show showcasing the future of street food on their own time-travelling food stall. Sharp’s brewery will be leading beer and food tasting sessions as well as handing out free pints of Doom Bar on entry.
