Posted at 3:15 pm, December 28, 2011 in Food & Drink

Eat.St Collective Petra BarranThe wait is over. Time Out’s writers and editors have named their 20 most influential figures of 2011. Ranging from the creative to the most innovative, these people made a significant difference to London in the past 12 months.

‘The pair deserve their gongs for promoting and nurturing London’s burgeoning street food scene since 2009. They launched the brilliant Eat.St at King’s Cross earlier this year, a three-day ‘market’ offering a platform for new and established street food traders (and the denizens of King’s Cross a better lunch option than Subway). The community of roving food trucks and street stalls is growing week on week – Eat.St has become a hub where traders can find support and hungry diners can track down and discover their favourite meals on wheels.’ Charmaine Mok, Food & Drink writer
