On June 14th to 18th, the restaurant festival Taste of London transformed Regent’s Park into a foodie wonderland by exhibiting 40 of London’s most exciting restaurants, the world’s greatest chefs, brand new exclusive features, interactive masterclasses, delectable drinks, and live entertainment for five days of gastronomical greatness. Taste of London is one of the seventeen global food festivals run by the company Taste Festivals, a part of the sports, fashion, and media mega-company IMG Worldwide.
I was absolutely thrilled when I received a press pass for this event, my first-ever restaurant festival! I went on the Saturday and spent the entire afternoon exploring every stand, feasting on testers, and just soaking in the vibrant atmosphere under the Sun. It was truly a day to remember, and only being able to attend one day made me realise that a day is far from enough to experience everything the festival has to offer.
That being said, I’m still very grateful to have been able to cover such an exciting event and I’m certainly looking forward to future Taste festivals. Here’s a quick recap video of my day at Taste of London:
If you’re interested in feasting on London’s finest food, this is definitely the festival for you. Last June, 40 of London’s most exciting restaurants were offering more than 160 taster-sized portions of their signature dishes throughout the festival. Whether you’re in the mood for some Peruvian barbecue by Señor Ceviche, fine Indian dining by Jamavar, or Nordic-French cuisine by Aster, Taste of London has it all. In addition to restaurants, over 200 artisan exhibitors with the UK’s best wine, cheese, and charcuterie (amongst other goods) were also featured.
Furthermore, you can also hone your skills and make new discoveries by participating in eclectic masterclasses. From creating your own gourmet food with the ever-popular AEG’s Take Taste Further cookery school to sampling a range of handcrafted single malts at The Balvenie Craftsmen’s Dinner Masterclass, your growth as a foodie is guaranteed.
If all this sounds invigorating to you, then you’re in luck because the next Taste of London is just four months away! From 16 to 19 November, Tobacco Dock will host 20 of London’s most exciting restaurants, re-imagined masterclasses, and live entertainment.
