Everything from Punjabi snacks to Scandinavian treats have been showcased at the For the Love of Food festival in Leeds.

Some of the finest street food traders from around the world descended on Millennium Square for the three-day event, which ended yesterday, for the final showdown of the British Street Food Awards 2014.

The 25 traders on show in the city centre square had already made it through six regional heats, while music stages, live food reviews, chef’s challenges and craft beer welcomed scores of visitors.

Launched in 2009, the British Street Food Awards aim to recognise the best of the 10,000 mobile food traders who take to the streets to sell quality home-made food.

Some of the Leeds vendors to take part included Fu-Schnikens, Manjit’s Kitchen (pictured) and Fish&. Trinity Kitchen, which showcases new and exciting street food every month at Trinity Leeds, sponsored the awards.
