Taste of London is returning to Tobacco Dock this November for a three-day celebration of London’s best food. Whether you’re an avid foodie or just a bit peckish, Taste of London: Festive Edition is the perfect place to get you in the Christmas mood. Try dishes from some of the capital’s top hotspots and chat to world-famous chefs such as Tom Aikens, Neil Campbell, Max Graham and James French. Food-wise you’ll be spoilt for choice: the restaurant line-up includes Nonna Tonda, Rigo, Club Mexicana, Tom’s Kitchen, Hoppers, Wingmans and Barbecoa.
Festival-goers can also hunker down in front of the Fire Pit to watch some of London’s hottest chefs taking live-fire cooking to its limits, or even enrol in a class to up their grilling game. Meanwhile at The Urban Kitchen you can get clued up on all things wholesome, such as how to grow your own food at home and how to heal and restore the body using herbs and spices.
The festival’s drink scene is buzzing too: visitors can take part in hands-on cocktail-making masterclasses, relax at the Laurent-Perrier Clubhouse, enjoy wine and cheese pairing at the Regional Australian School and Fine Wine Bar or sample their way through a selection of the UK’s best brewers at Craft Beer Cavern. Live entertainment will be running across the festival, including tunes from DJ BBQ at DJ BBQ’s Hot Dog Party or Danny Mills at The Piano Bar for those looking for something a bit more mellow.
If you’re after some luxury, opt for one of the VIP Champagne Packages, which give you fast-track entry, access to the VIP lounge, a complimentary glass of champagne and two tasty signature dishes of your choice.
