Taste Festivals

The Taste of London brings together some of Britain's finest restaurants and chefs.

Taste Festivals are an annual event taking place in Edinburgh, London and Dublin.

Taste of London is a four day gourmet extravaganza that takes place in Regent's Park over from 16th to 19th June. Britain's best restaurants and leading chefs will take part, preparing sample sized signature dishes for visitors to enjoy.

To name some of the establishments taking part would risk leaving out the others. A list can be found on the site, but to whet your appetite, here are a few: Tom Aikens, Fino, Le Gavroche, Yauatcha, Pied à Terre, Scotts, Cinnamon Club, Mocoto, Theo Randall and Galvin at Windows.

As well as sampling fine food and drink, visitors will be able to enjoy live music and watch chefs perform, sharing their skills and expertise, in The Times Chefs' Theatre, in association with Your M&S. The cast of chefs makes for a glittering list of culinary alumni.

Taste of London Wine & Spirit Academy will have a daily programme of talks and demonstrations, with advice on food and wine matching. A number of gourmet food and drink producers will have stands also.
