René Redzepi joins Taste of London
World’s Number One Chef, René Redzepi to Join Award Winning Line up at Taste of London Restaurant Festival
Having been voted the Best Restaurant in the World for a second time at last night’s World’s 50 Best awards, Danish restaurant Noma prepares to share its star chef, René Redzepi
with some of the UK’s biggest foodies at the Taste of London restaurant festival.
The new Secret Garden area will host an intimate Q&A with Redzepi where people keen to recreate his style of progressive cooking will be able to hear first-hand about his unique foraging approach, take note of the more unconventional ingredients he uses and understand just how his Copenhagen restaurant has remained at the number one spot for two years running. Redzepi will also be making a guest appearance in the new S. Pellegrino Trilogy Masterclass, tasting and pairing food, wine and water.
Redzepi will be joining a host of international heavy weights flying in for the summer’s biggest foodie event including Portugal’s Nuno Mendes (Viajante)
and Spain’s Nacho Manzano (Casa Marcial)
. A full schedule of talent will be announced in May.
Taste of London is celebrating what is arguably its best restaurant line-up to date, totaling an impressive eleven Michelin stars. Scott’s, Le Caprice, Petrus, Skylon, Gauthier Soho and Bocca di Lupo / Gelupo are just a handful of new restaurants involved for 2011, promising to delight over 50,000 visitors across the four days at London’s Regent’s Park between 16th and 19th June.
