Taste of London 2015

It’s almost time for the largest networking event in the UK’s foodie calendar: Taste of London. Running from 17th – 20th June, Taste of London brings together the very best of the food and drink industry.

Building on the success of last year’s event Taste of London 2015 is expected to be bigger and better. Expect Michelin quality restaurants, live cooking demonstrations and top chefs including Marcus Waring and Michel Roux Jr, as well as rising stars like Ella Woodward from DeliciouslyElla.com.

Guests will also have the opportunity to taste a range of dishes from an impressive 40-restaurant line-up offering cuisines from British, Spanish and French to Japanese, Chinese, Mexican and more.

The Daily Special Restaurant – new for 2015 – will allow guests to taste different dishes each day from selected restaurants including Lyle’s, The Dairy and Michel Roux Jnr’s Diner.

It’s a celebration of one of the world’s most vibrant food scenes set in the relaxing backdrop of London’s Regents Park. There’ll be DJs, live music and the opportunity to enjoy a cocktail or two, or a glass of champagne.

As champagne is the perfect accompaniment to smoked salmon, naturally we recommend you attend the Champagne Masterclass by Laurent-Perrier, one of the most distinguished family-owned Champagne Houses.

The masterclass, hosted by Master of Wine David Hesketh, offers guests a ‘fun champagne experience whilst learning to choose the optimum champagne for any occasion.’
