Taste this year is bigger than previous years with so many more food producer tents, corporate entertaining marquees and lots more food and cooking activities. Taste of London is the biggest restaurant festival where a whole selection of Michelin star chefs congregate to do meet and greets and do cooking demonstrations. There are few places where you will get to meet these world renowned chefs in one place. As entry is by time slots, there is hardly enough time to walk through the show, eat from lots of stands and participate in any of the cooking lessons.
A couple of quick slide shows of the day:
Among those tops names that were featured, I saw Massimo Bottura and Rene Redzepi doing sessions at the Electrolux tents. Michel was being accosted by a bunch of groupies and a Dan Doherty of Duck and Waffle being cornered by his fans.
Eating wise, I had a fab Korean meal by Gizzi Erskine at the Visit Korea/ Korea Foods stand. After this, I couldn’t sample any of the dishes being served up at the restaurant stands.
However, I did have time to walk around to meet some food producers and found some interesting products.
There was not nearly enough time to eat and see everything. Might have to go twice next year. You can get more information or buy tickets from the official website.
