Taste of London

Taste of London’s festive showcase is the Christmas feast before the Christmas feast.

The season of feasting is upon us, and as well all know from exercising, it’s important to warm up before diving into the main event. It’s handy, therefore, that Taste of London are returning to town for a festive showcase, which once again offers you the chance to pick and choose your favourite dishes from across the capital’s best restaurants. But you’ll need to grab your tickets quickly, because the festival is nearly upon us!

Hitting up Tobacco Dock from November 21st-24th, the excitement starts as soon as you glimpse who’s appearing; Taste of London have assembled an Avengers-worthy lineup that features the likes of Smoking Goat, Berenjak, BAO, Bubala, XU, and Neat Burger. They’ll be showing off their menu favourites, and bringing further flair with some never-before-seen dishes. Additionally, for the first time in Taste of London’s history, each and every restaurant will be providing a vegetarian dish so no-one misses out on the feast.

Returning for the festive showcase is Taste of London’s excellent fire pit, which will be taken over by a rotating cast of top chefs. This enviable parade of talent includes Selin Kiazim, James Cochran, John Chantarasak, and Chris Leach, each of whom will be serving up flame-grilled perfection to hungry punters.

Elsewhere across the festival, you can take part in workshops that’ll teach you how to whip up the perfect paella or create a boozy jam that’ll knock your nan’s socks off. River Cottage’s Steven Lamb will be teaching guests how to create a Christmas feast that goes way beyond dry turkey, whilst Wolf Blass will put an Antipodean twist on Christmas with their festive Australian vineyard, which – yes – is full of quaffable wines.

Finally, if you’d like to get a little more hands-on at Taste of London, mosey on over to the roaring fire bowls, where you can roast giant marshmallows over the flames. Top chefs will be dropping by throughout the festival to show you how to create mouthwatering desserts using fire – and if there’s anything more delicious and badass than that, we’re yet to hear about it.
