Visitors to the three-day feeding frenzy that is the British Street Food Awards ate their way through a vast array of dishes on Friday and Saturday, ahead of today's final judging session. The chapasty, an Indian take on the traditional pasty, made with beetroot and paneer, by Manjit's Kitchen, proved popular, as did the pecan pie and home-made root beer from the Noisy Table, while there were seven entrants for the Best Burger category.

Many of the dishes in contention had witty titles: joining the chapasty were a feastie boys' box of fish'n'chips, and the ham shank redemption sandwich.

To rate the six categories, the judges – who include Coronation Street actress Gaynor Faye, chef Ed Baines and Lisa Markwell, editor of The Independent on Sunday – will have to eat and drink 39 different entries... all before 12.15pm.

The event in Millennium Square, Leeds, takes place today between 11am and 5.30pm. Tickets cost £6.
