Taste of London 2010
Did you also know that London has one of the worldâ€™s bestÂ restaurant festivals: the Taste of London?
Held in Londonâ€™s Regentâ€™s Park June 17-20, the Taste of London will serve up dishes from 40 of the cityâ€™s â€śmost acclaimedâ€ť restaurants. Also on siteÂ will beÂ 150 specialty food and drink suppliers.
Anna Hansenâ€™s The Modern Pantry and Atul Kochharâ€™s Colony Bar and Grill are two new restaurants taking part in this yearâ€™s event, along with Taste of London favorites Le Gavroche, Rhodes Twenty Four, Tomâ€™s Kitchen and Bentleyâ€™s.
Tips: One thing to look out for at the Taste of London is the live cooking demonstrations with chef stars Francesco Mazzei of Lâ€™Anima and Tristan Welch from Launceston Place. You can also try and get one of the limited edition tickets to attend a prestigious Laurent-Perrier Champagne Masterclass, in association with Daylesford Organic, where food and drink presenter Nigel Barden will introduce guests to a “champagne and food matching experience.”
Â Other things happening at the Taste of London this year worth noting include:
- Taste of Malaysia where you can sampleÂ Malaysian dishes from three of London’s top Malaysian restaurants: Satay House, Tukdin Flavours of Malaysia and Awana.
- The brand new Taste Wine area where top sommeliers and producers will be on hand to help visitors â€śswirl, sniff, sip and savorâ€ť some of the worldâ€™s best wines.
Another tip: Before or after the Taste of London, check out Oxford Circus; Bond Street; Madame Tussaudâ€™s;Â or the Sherlock Holmes Museum.Â All are near Regent’s Park.Â For more ideas on things to do in London, check out Visit London’s Web site.
