Experience a four day food festival filled with enough Christmas cheer to thaw even the frostiest Grinch’s heart.
From the 16th to the 19th of November Taste of London Festival is setting up shop at Tobacco Dock for a long weekend that’s all about seasonal food and drink. And while it might seem a smidge too early to be thinking about Christmas right now, we know by the time November comes around you’ll be in full Buddy the Elf mode – so you might as well get this in the diary!
From traditional Middle Eastern fare to Michelin-starred tapas there’s something for everyone to enjoy. It’s literally the perfect opportunity for you to select the food you’ll be featuring on that hallowed Christmas day dining table, with loads of culinary inspiration from special guest chef demos at the AEG Taste Theatre.
Visitors will also have the chance to get involved with hands-on masterclasses such as the AEG Get Baking sessions with loveable Bake Off finalist/builder Richard Burr. The perfect way to perfect your mince pie recipe before the party season kicks off!
Plus there’ll be a huge variety of tasters on offer, so you won’t be leaving hungry! 100 of the UK’s top gourmet producers are there to show you their stuff and 22 of the capital’s most celebrated restaurants will be serving up their signature dishes. And did we mention The World Cheese Awards 2017 will actually be taking place at the event? There’ll even be a special appearance from the street food heroes behind The Cheese Bar.
And it’s not just about the food! When it comes to festive drinks, this event really has you covered. Whether you just want to sample a few cheeky cocktails, or you need ideas for a big Christmas party, Taste of London’s your place. The Botanist will be wowing guests with their herb garden wall, Monkey Shoulder are manning a whisky wonderland, plus there’s a Craft Beer Trail and a Laurent-Perrier Club House. It’s not just about mulled wine anymore, people! Although, we know there’ll be a lot of that on offer too…
