Truth be told, the main reason so many foodies flock to Taste of London is, quite naturally, to taste the food. As always, visitors will be treated to the latest culinary innovations from a selection of London’s best restaurants. This includes Tredwell’s, Tom’s Kitchen, Maze Grill, Club Gascon and Café Spice Namaste, to name just a few. The summer's tasting highlights included Anna Hansen’s hearty and spicy mince tatties and a fragrant peach sorbet with baked white peaches by Theo Randall.
Taste will again also be working with five top chefs and its charity partner, Action Against Hunger to create dishes for their pop up 5* Restaurant. With all proceeds going to the charity, visitors can experience dishes created by Vivek Singh and Italian superstar, Francesco Mazzei with the added benefit of contributing towards the fight against worldwide malnutrition.
