You may have noticed that I love food, in fact one of my children asked me the other day, is there any food I don’t like? There is I just don’t cook it!
Anyway, it has just came to my attention that there is a food festival in London next month; The Taste of London at Regent’s Park 18-22 June 2014, it sounds just like my idea of heaven.
At Taste of London you can eat from 40 0f the top London restaurants, buy from 200 food and drink producers and watch chefs demonstrate their skills live. The programme includes:
- Live demonstrations from some of the world’s best chefs in the Electrolux Taste Theatre
- The Stubbins Kitchen Garden with top chefs demonstrating their skills on the fire pit using freshly picked produce from the garden
- The Taste Of London Bandstand has a choc full programme of entertainment from bands, musicians and DJ’s
- Inamo Sushi and Sake masterclasses
- Taste of Korea including taste Korean food with Gizzi Erskine
- Chapel Down wine and Oyster bar
- Oooo, I like the sound of this one: A Champagne Laurent-Perrier masterclass with, champagne of course, and a masterclass menu
- A silent disco at Mortimer’s Cider Bar!
and so much more…the only trouble would be what to choose? I’ve had a look at the restaurant menus and trying to choose what and where to eat is a major decision in itself. Roasted chicken chilli, lemon & garlic soy courtesy of Roka, or Kimchi spiced lamb chops from Flesh & Buns? How about a pulled pork sausage roll, tomato chilli relish from the Chop Shop. To finish a chocolate and walnut cake, salted PX caramel, vanilla-yogurt from Salt Yard to finish perhaps? See the dilemma!
If you really want to go all out and attend as many sessions as you can, there is accommodation nearby at The Holiday Inn Regent’s Park which is just three minutes away from Taste of London by car, and a little further away is The Holiday Inn London Bloomsbury which is nine minutes away by car.
Advance tickets cost from £12 per child and £24 for a standard adult ticket which includes entry to the festival, access to the masterclass, theatre and demonstrations. Special masterclasses cost more. Tickets are for lunch or evening sessions.
Taste of London is opposite Regent’s Park underground station and there are plenty of buses to make getting there easy.
