Taste of London is back in Regent’s Park this summer from 18th-22nd June, celebrating the diversity and flair of British culinary talent.
Chefs and expertise

The two Michelin starred chef Tom Kerridge will be making his Taste of London debut, featuring alongside Massimo Botura, of Osteria Francescana, a three Michelin starred restaurant that’s number three in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants and Rene Redzepi of the renowned world number one restaurant Noma.
Taste of London brings in one of its founders Michel Roux Jr, with his fellow Le Gavroche chef Monica Galetti. Hot new names will include Bobby Chinn from House of Ho, Tom Sellers (Story London) and Cyrus Todiwala (Cafe Spice Namaste). Taste favourites Alfred Prasad, Ben Tish, Pascal Aussignac, Theo Randall and Daniel Doherty will be back this year.
Visitors to Taste of London will be able to try tapas sized dishes from up to 40 of London’s best new restaurants. Get your hands on London’s most talked about burgers from Meat Liquor, Vietnamese from House of Ho, and a fusion of Brazilian, Goan and Indian cuisine from Assado.
Sister restaurants Duck and Waffle and Sushisamba will be joining Taste of London favourites Le Gavroche, Salt Yard, Club Gascon and Spice Market. The Truscott Arms and Tamarind will also be adding some variety to the line-up.
Drinking and tasting experiences
Indulge in an exclusive champagne masterclass from Laurent-Perrier. Visitors can take part in a blind tasting following a Cuvée Rosé reception. Three champagnes will be matched to complement carefully selected food dishes, focusing on the experience of the champagne on the nose and palate.
For those with lavish tastes, visitors with a Mahiki ticket will enjoy access to the Mahiki bar, complimentary cocktails, masterclasses, DJs and limbo dancing and much more.
The rise of Korean food
Many food trends have hit London over the past few years and with the growth of London’s street food scene, and coverage from Gizzi Erskine, The Hairy Bikers and Stevie Parle, London’s food culture has a growing Korean influence. Korea Foods will be sharing and showcasing the best of Korean food.
Taste of Thailand
Visitors will be spoilt with some of London’s finest Thai restaurants cooking dishes and doing live demonstrations at the Taste of Thailand Kitchen, including Blue Elephant, Mango Room, Rosa’s, Isarn and Thai Tho. Sample Thailand’s vibrant and eclectic street food from Thai Rice Fulham and The Begging Bowl.
And that’s not all…
When you’re done trying, tasting and showing off your skills at the masterclasses, buy some goodies at the 200 food and drink boutiques that will be around, take part in sushi making classes, or party hard in the silent disco at Mortimer’s Orchard Marquee. There are many more events to indulge in.
