The champion of the 2011 British Street Food Awards will be trading next to champions of a different kind next year – when they set up shop in the Olympic Village for London 2012. It’s an amazing prize, which is why the announcement of the 14 finalists is so eagerly awaited this year. They come from all over Britain – and each one is a potential gold medallist.

Awards, judged by a panel of food experts including Richard Corrigan and Antony Worrall Thompson, will take place at Harvest on Jimmy Doherty’s farm from September 9-11. With everything from jhal muri (served out of a little truck, decked out like an Indian temple), to fresh pizza (cooked over a wood-fired oven in a vintage van), they promise to be more hotly contested than ever. And so without further ado here is the moment you have all been waiting for………
