Here we go! After the toughest year in our 11-year history, it’s finally time to find the champions of Europe in the 2021 European Street Food Awards. We’re getting there. Slowly. But with countries still going in and out of lockdown, live events are suffering. And travelling across borders isn’t happening any time soon. So we’re making plans for ESFA 2021 as best we can.
Last year we were one of only a handful of organisations that managed to run a live food event in a pandemic. AND shout about it on the BBC. Check this out. We learnt how to deliver things safely AND soundly, and can’t wait to do it again this year. We’ve also been busy working with traders in the USA ahead of the launch of the USA Street Food Awards. And the American winners can’t wait to take on the champs of Europe!
Throughout the summer we have been finding the hottest street food talent in Europe. After 11 years of hunting for the best that’s out there, Food Mutiny (who now run the Street Food Awards in Britain, Europe and the USA) have a habit of blazing trails. So we’ve also decided to build our own stage where the best can perform. With the coolest traders on rotation. At Bumper Bar + Kitchens, we will make ‘food courts’ look very static and old fashioned. Watch this space. But for now, here’s the latest update:
WHO WHAT WHEN WHERE
We are still waiting for government rulings on the virus and public assembly to determine whether the national Awards can go ahead in the following countries:
Georgian Street Food Awards, hosted by Keti Maglakelidze
Hungarian Street Food Awards, hosted by Food Truck Show
