Taste of London Returns With A Festive Celebration of Food and Drink

Taste of London returns this week for its festive edition which will see up to 25,000 hungry Londoners descend on East London's Tobacco Dock over four days. The event will host six sessions over its duration, featuring an array of restaurants covering a wealth of cuisines plus chefs, bars, entertainment and more.

One of the most popular cuisines at the event is BBQ and fire cooking, something that featured in our top 10 trends list for 2021/22. The list of restaurants in this category includes Ashes BBQ, Country Fire Chicken, Lagom, Cue Point and Anju with their Korean BBQ Street Food. Also fitting this bill at Taste London is Genevieve Taylor and her Bristol Fire School, a cookery school focusing on BBQ and fire cooking from the South West.

The event will also feature London's first brussels sprouts only bar where top chefs will be reinventing the humble festive vegetable. While those looking for a more common beverage from the drinks counter can find home at one of of the many other bars including that from Bombay Sapphire, Grey Goose's Alpine Bar, Patron's Tequila Bar and even Champagne Laurent Perrier's Apres Ski Club House, plus cheese and sparkling wine tastings too - something which caught our eye.

A range of chefs will also be at the event each day doing master classes and talks, including Cue Point co-founder Joshua Moroney; Omar Allibhoy, founder of Tapas Revolution; Karan Gokhani of Sri Lankan restaurant Hoppers; and Itamar Srulovich of Honey & Co.
