London food | Taste festival
London fine dining is notoriously expensive and normally out of the reach of the average traveller’s budget. However, if you happen to be in London in the third week of June, you’re in luck.
Taste of London is back again from June 18 – 21 at Regent’s Park. Some of London’s best chefs will be serving their signature dishes and sharing their secrets on the art of cooking while 150 food and drink producers hand out the samples and top up your glasses.
So if you’re a food connoiseur or if you’ve only ever had pub food and fish and chips whilst in London, this is your chance to taste the finer flavours of food in London and what the greatest chefs have to offer. From classic British to fine French, from authentic Italian to traditional Thai, discover for yourself the excellence of London’s chefs and make your own judgements.
Thailand will be the highlight of the 2009 London event with a section of the show dedicated to Thailand’s spicy food and restaurants such as Benja, Blue Elephant, Busaba Eathai, Mango Tree, Nahm and others will be presenting their dishes to discerning foodies.
There’ll be a line-up of activities during the three days and whether it’s watching your favourite chefs demonstrate their secrets in the Taste Theatre or sampling exquisite wines with the UK’s top sommeliers in the Taste Wine School, there is something for everyone.
Taste of London is one of the greatest restaurant festivals and the event is hugely popular. So if you don’t want to miss it, you should book early. Two tickets at GBP 69 sounds like a great deal.Your Turn: Do you have any advice you would like to share? What tips would you like to add? Please comment below.
