Hull trader rewarded for donuts

We are delighted that two of our regular traders at the Hull Street Food Nights and Yum! Festival of Food and Drink have been recognised at the British Street Food Awards for the excellent food they produce. 

John and Lisa from Parm Star won the award for the best main dish, with their Teeside delicacy parmo – a grilled chicken cutlet smothered in bechamel sauce and cheese, in a bun. 

One of our own in Tom Stafford, who is from Hull and is in his first year of trading with D’oh Hut, won the best dessert and the overall British Street Food Champion award with his Madagascan vanilla creme pat donut topped with honeycomb and homemade shortbread. 

The food was judged and tasted by the expert judging panel of Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar from the Million Pound Menu, Michelin-starred chef Richard Corrigan from the Great British Menu, 2017 winner of the Great British Menu Pip Lacey and food writer Gizzi Erskine. 

Now the race is on for Tom to get packed up and on the Hull to Rotterdam ferry to travel to Berlin representing the UK (and obviously Yorkshire!) for the European Street Food Awards Final on Saturday 29 September.
