Taste of London festival returns to London next week and it’s transforming Regent’s Park into a foodie heaven.
If you’re looking for street food eats, summer cocktails and a festival atmosphere – minus the muddy fields, putrid portaloos and rowdy teenagers – we know you’re going to love this one.
From the 14th to the 18th June Regent’s Park becomes a street eat paradise. Top chefs from London’s best restaurants will be offering taster-sized potions of their signature dishes, alongside stalls from over 200 food and drink purveyors, peddling the finest artisanal ingredients around.
With dishes on offer from Duck and Waffle Local, Aster, L’Autre Pied, Señor Ceviche, and The Cinnamon Club (to name just a few) you’ll be able to try five star food while also avoiding paying for the extra drinks and service costs that come with a restaurant meal. Perfect for giving you inspiration for your next date night, perhaps? Or for impressing your mates with your instant, swanky London restaurant knowledge.
There are also plenty of opportunities to sharpen your own cooking skills with Taste of London’s Take Taste Further classes. You could be walking out of this class with the culinary confidence of Gordon Ramsay himself. Maybe. Ok, that’s probably a slightly over ambitious goal, but it’s likely you’ll feel fairly pleased with yourself because they’re promising to help you cook restaurant standard dishes (and then you’ll have the pleasure of eating them).
There are literally hundreds of things to do over the course of the festival’s residence – cocktail classes, whisky tasting, celebrity chef cooking demos, beer pouring, barista sessions – so we’d definitely recommend paying it a visit next week.
You can find discounted tickets for the event here. You’ll be saving £3, so we recommend putting that towards a perfectly poured pint or a classic gin and tonic. You’re welcome.
You’ll find the festival at Regent’s Park, Outer Circle, NW1 5HA.
