Every summer, London’s famous Regent’s Park hosts Taste of London — a food-fuelled 10-day garden party, where thousands of hungry Londoners devour the best food and drink in the country.
This year, the festivities are a bit low-key because of the pandemic. The festival is divided between 7-11th July and 14th-18th July. Tickets start at 23 pounds for a taste pass and go up to 73 pounds for a three-dish bundle.
Thirty-four restaurants are participating this year including Indian cuisine restaurant Tamarind, Portuguese restaurant Bar Duoro, Peruvian-Japanese restaurant Chotto Matte, a vegan restaurant called Flower Burger, a restaurant serving British food called Mob Kitchen and several serving desserts. Alongside the week-long restaurants, a line-up of daily specials give the people a chance to sample some of the city’s new food concepts popping up for just a day or two.
Taste of London also gives people a chance to interact with the chefs and attend masterclasses. And there is plenty to do for those who enjoy a drink. From tequila bars to coffee bars that besides serving the perfect brew also serve coffee-infused cocktails. There is also a craft beer trail — a must-visit for any hop aficionado, you’ll get to pair tasty morsels with craft ales from some of Britain’s best brewers.
Of course, you can’t have any festivities without champagne. So head to the Laurent-Perrier Club House with a glass of Cuvee Rose in hand. Plus, this year Laurent-Perrier are taking the concept of great fashion taste to a whole new level. They’ve teamed up with The Berkeley to create a biscuit in homage to Manolo Blahnik, iced in champagne pink.
