UK: British Street Food Awards Winners Announced

A pink VW camper van from Harrogate served up tea and cakes, a polished Airstream trailer from Belfast bunned up the fattest, pinkest burgers you've ever tasted, and a beach hut from the coast of Suffolk served up plump white cod, chips and mushy peas. But the winner was a London ice cream van. Kitty from LaGrotta Ices served up a Sicilian lemon granita, topped with candied lemon peel, and came away as Best of the Best. Her little ice cream truck had been stolen only weeks before (the work of 13-year-old joy riders), which made it even sweeter to win the Award.
"I had a tiny hope pinned on winning best pud" she said. "As a cook,nothing makes you happier than people liking what you're doing- especially flattering when they are judges like A.W.T, Tommi and M.H. But winning Best of the Best was a real shock.. I have to admit I had my fingers crossed for Yianni and his Meatwagon who is really making something spectacularly delicious with a single-minded passion which I admire very much, and which is what I think streetfood should be about: idiosyncratic, original, fresh, economical and delicious - something not easy to replicate in restaurants. If I fit into this category also then I'm very pleased with that."
