Ready for a weekend of gastronomic delights? We deffo are and with rather handy timing Taste of London has rolled into Regent’s Park. Currently showcasing the best of London’s top eateries this alfresco gourmet feast is the perfect opportunity to sample renowned dishes from the likes of Scotts, Le Caprice, Petrus and Le Gavroche, to name just a few of the 40 there are to choose from. To further add to the culinary delights there are 200 producers exhibiting a bounty of food and beverages, from top brands to artisan offerings. Get ready to shop and sample to your heart’s content.
The trademark small plates are back, no getting eyes bigger than our tummies here, the trick is to keep sampling and save room as you are always going to come across something else that you just have to try. The dream tasting menu just goes on and on; Rhodes' famous Jaffa Cake Pudding, Roux's Lobster and Truffle Cocktail, ORA's Sticky Rice with Thai Honey Mango and Skylon's Butter Poached Lobster being just a few of the tantalising dishes on offer.
If you are looking for a side of exclusivity with your Taste of London experience we suggest opting for tickets that allow access to The Laurent Perrier Secret Garden. New for 2011 this little hidden gem offers respite from the crowds as well as fine foods, drinks, entertainment and top chefs.
If you fancy doing something other than eating your way around the festival head over the one of the theatres for a masterclass from some of the top names in food. Other masterclass attractions include Jamaican cuisine, beer and tapas matching and the best in baking – something for everyone we think. We will be making a beeline for the La Pâtisserie Peugeot theatre at 2:50pm tomorrow to see our fave chocolatier, Marc Demarquette, showcasing his talents.
