In photos: Taste of London festival


Taste of London

The world’s greatest restaurant festival returned this week for its tenth year. I visited yesterday, but it has been open since Wednesday the 18th of June and will last til the 22nd of June (tomorrow). I personally love this festival; it always brings together many (40 this year) of the hottest restaurants in London, with visitors getting the opportunity to try tapas sized dishes from all of them in one convenient location. There are 22 restaurant festivals this year so it’s not only Londonders who get to enjoy this culinary bonanza.. Check out Durban’s and Toronto’s festivals in July,  Stockholm’s and Rome’s in September, and  Melbourne’s and Mumbai’s in November.

Taste of London always delivers the most exceptional global talent. It was here that I met Alain Ducasse and Rene Redzepi three years ago.  This year, Le Gavroche chef Monica Galetti showed us how to fillet salmon  and make a salmon, juniper and beetroot bake:
