ABOUT THE FESTIVE EDITION OF TASTE OF LONDON
Four days of feasting
We can’t wait to be back at East London’s Tobacco Dock this November and soak up the festive spirit as we sink our teeth into the best food and drink in the capital. We’re joined by 20,000 hungry Londoners, ready to devour two years’ worth of festive deliciousness.
Six delicious sessions
This year, we will be hosting six sessions over four food-fuelled days. Time to assemble the crew and start plotting your festive feasting.
Thurs 18 November 18:00-22:30
Fri 19 November 11:00-16:30 & 18:00-22:30
Sat 20 November 11:00-16:30 & 18:00-22:30
Sun 21 November 12:00-17:00
All of London’s best restaurants
So what’s the deal? We round up the hottest London restaurants, hunt down the future food heroes, hit up a few chefs about to launch their next big thing, and throw a festival celebrating it all. Alongside our week-long restaurants, a line-up of Daily Specials give you the chance to sample some of the city’s tastiest new concepts, popping up for one or two days only.
Cook it up a level
Whether Nailed It fails look like your finest work or you’ve just graduated to soufflé spheres, we could all benefit from a bit of chef face time. Prop yourself up at The Fire Pit to catch the charring in action or head straight to the VIP table sessions to quiz chefs and producers on their culinary inspiration.
A myriad of ways to get involved
Foraging your own cocktail garnish, creating cocktails that communicate with your brainwaves, tucking into the world’s biggest pig in blanket… we’ve experienced it all at Taste over the years. Pull up a seat and take a leap into the future of flavour. If you haven’t tried it yet, you will at Taste – arrive hungry.
Shake it to make it
Tried more samples than a Tribe Called Quest song? All this eating is thirsty work. Swing by the Laurent-Perrier Club House to toast the festivities, practice your shake face at a cocktail masterclass, transport yourself to a far-flung vineyard at a wine tasting or meander through the atmospheric alleys on a hunt to discover your next microbrewery beau.
Delicious vibes only
Kick back to the sound of the DJ at the VIP Lounge, duck into an atmospheric subterranean cocktail bar, get all the festive feels soaking up the sounds of the choir, or show us what you’ve got at a belting Piano Bar singalong. Whatever your festival vibe is, the soundtrack to your feasting is lit.
