Pitching up with the whole gang at Taste of London this year? There’s plenty for everyone to get stuck into this festive edition.
Highball Flights at the Johnnie Walker Highball Experience
You’ve meandered around the Christmas markets and are feeling suitably festive: it’s time to take a perch at the Johnnie Walker Highball Experience and get the party started to the beat of their resident DJ. The Highball Flight is perfect for groups: wet your whistle sampling all five miniature Johnnie Walker cocktails before treating yourself to a full size version of your favourite.
Lucky dip dumplings by Master Wei Xi-an, Lan Kwai Fong Camden x Dumplings’ Legend
With not one but two dumpling specialists appearing at Taste of London this festive edition, it’s only fair that you order them all and assemble a dumpling roulette of dreams. Score your winners on the menus and tag #besttastedish for the chance to win tickets and do it all over again at Taste of London 2020 (we’ll leave fighting for who gets the tickets up to you).
Whilst you’re there, pick up a bowl of Master We Xi-an’s iconic hand-pulled biang biang noodles, but be warned: these beauties definitely aren’t for sharing.
Wine tastings at Wolf Blass’s Festive Australian Vineyard
It’s time to wow the crowd with your wine prowess at a complimentary wine tasting hosted by Wolf Blass at their festive vineyard. Hidden amongst the vine-draped pergolas, you’ll be transported to the sun-drenched hills of the Barossa Valley as you learn how to pair their signature vintages with your favourite festive dishes.
T-Bone and Matt Williams at The Guinness Fire Pit
For Christmas party trick inspiration with a difference, look no further than T-Bone and Matt Williams’s demonstration at The Guiness Fire Pit. If you’ve long given up the ghost of maintaining any sort of Insta-friendly green-fingeredness, here’s a new lease of life for your forgotten watering can: as a steak grill plate! As intrigued as we are? You betcha! Swing by from 9.30pm on Friday to catch all the action.
Cake pop selfies at POP Bakery
Christmas doesn’t get cuter than this: we’ve teamed up with POP Bakery to bring your favourite Taste dishes to life as sweet cake pop treats, including hotdogs, baos and Father Christmases (okay, they're not all dishes). Pick up a pop for everyone and jump into the selfie booth to pose alongside the giant penguin pops and nail your annual whacky Christmas card competition.
Cocktails and Classics at The Taste Tavern
It’s definitely time for a festive tipple or two. Form a merry conga line and head straight for the Taste Tavern, where the spirits will be high and the beats will be bigger. Sip on mince pie moonshine and maple old fashioned cocktails as you vibe out to the DJ and try and resist the urge to air-saxophone. Our tip: Stories may only be around for 24 hours but memories haunt you forever.
Seasonal singalongs at the Deco Noir Piano Bar
No festive edition of Taste of London is complete without a swaying squad singalong to the sounds of the Deco Noir Piano Bar. Make like Maria and throw caution to the wind with your most heartfelt rendition yet. And if all you want for Christmas is another turn at the keys, upgrade to a Taste Lovers Pass and do it all over again tomorrow...
