Borders based Cal & Mel along with their van ‘Florence’ made the trip to the O2 Arena, London for the annual awards.

“An accolade like this is the icing on the cake for us after just over a year trading. From sell-outs to wash-outs it’s been an unbelievable year!” said Mel of their win.

The awards, the brainchild of food journalist Richard Johnson, recognise the top mobile food vans in the Uk and the emphasis is on food created that’s as good as found in top restaurants.

This years finals took place at the o2 arena London last weekend, with the judging line-up including Michelin Starred Chef, Giorgio Locatelli, Neil Rankin of Smokehouse and food writer/broadcaster Faye Ripley.

“It’s difficult to do sweet on the street, but the judges were impressed at how The Crema Caravan manage to do it — with a real dash of theatre, a lot of hard graft, and exquisite toppings, all prepared with a real cheffy flourish” said Richard Johnson of the duo.

The Best Dessert winners are looking forward to a busy 2016 with their calendar already filling up after their success in London.
