The Fire Pit

Taking centre stage at the festival this summer will be the all-new Fire Pit at Taste of London.

Throughout the weekend London’s greatest barbecue chefs will showcase their flaming-hot culinary talent as they cook up fire-licked delicacies in front of the crowd, all hosted by our fire chief-in-residence DJ BBQ.

Headlining The Fire Pit this summer will be the trailblazing Niklas Ekstedt, whose awe-inspiring open-flame cooking has earned his eponymous Stockholm restaurant a Michelin star and worldwide acclaim. Revered for his re-imagining of traditional Nordic cooking techniques – including building a ‘stone-age microwave’ in his restaurant – Niklas can be credited for leading the open-flame cooking revolution and gastronomy’s rekindled love of back-to-basics cooking. His star turn at The Fire Pit on opening night at Taste of London is not to be missed.
