Entries open for the Street Food Championships!
Out of Home (OOH) and Dine Out magazines are excited to announce that the Street Food Championships will be held in September – and the cream of the industry is being invited to enter! The exciting event – which searches for the nation’s most mouth-watering street food dishes and offers a £1,000 prize – will be held in a marquee at London Shenley Club near Watford on 30th September 2021.
The very best chefs from the street food, out of home, fast-casual and independent and group restaurant sectors are invited to apply from 4th May. They can enter their signature street food dishes into one of four cuisine rounds: Americana, European, Latin American and Pan-Asian.
The 16 shortlisted finalists will then cook up their signature dishes at the live event on 30th September, with the best being awarded the £1,000 and the coveted Street Food Dish of the Year trophy. Not only that, but they will also be tasked with several head-to-head technical challenges, including the Wings Round sponsored by Frank's Red Hot Sauce.
Wayne Handley from Bun Club, who won the event’s central London-based predecessor, said: “I didn’t expect to win to be honest! I’d had a really good response from the street food scene which made me want to enter. To win was amazing.”
Henry Norman, editor of OOH magazine, added: “Street food has been a constant throughout the last year or so and remains a real success story. We can’t wait to host this event and celebrate – and sample! – the best that the UK scene has to offer.”
The venue has been chosen specifically as it offers the required ventilation and social distancing. London Shenley Club is a unique and attractive all-year-round location that hosts private events, weddings and corporate cricket matches. The grounds are set in the idyllic Hertfordshire countryside, offering stunning surroundings.
The best in the industry will be in attendance… will you be among them?
