Well done to Jakobsens Pita and Tacopop – the Champions and People’s Choice at the 2021 Danish Street Food Awards hosted by Tasty Town and Food Mutiny. Our jury at the last national final of the European Street Food Awards 2021 was a team of tv celebrities, Michelin-star chefs and acclaimed food critics (Claus Elming, Rasmus Schou and Henrik Jyrk) who dutifully went through all the finalists’ tasting menus before placing Spicy India in third and Thai Chili in second. But Jacobsen Pita’s signature was truly outstanding – an innovative Danish take on traditional pita in a taco-style serve.
In a normal year both finalists would both go on to represent Denmark at the grand finals of the grand final of the European Street Food Awards, but COVID has stopped (almost) all our fun. HOWEVER we still managed national Awards in 10 countries (thank you Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Croatia, Iceland, Poland, Scotland, Wales and Britain PLUS we’re still launching the USA Street Food Awards this year AND we’ll be back with our properly pan-European competition in 2022. What a party that’s going to be!
