2. There's going to be a freakin' dessert bar
We know you guys love a good bar. And we know you love a good pud. So set excitement levels to the max for Taste of London's very own dessert bar. Pull up a pew and sample delicious treats from a secret line-up of London's best sugar daddies.
3. You can learn from the masters
Fancy yourself as a bit of a master chef? Then stop by the AEG Taste Theatre, where you can put your questions to London chef and TV star Marcus Wareing. Go on, give him a grilling. Monica Galetti and Tom Kerridge will also be making an appearance at the star-studded festival.
4. Get in early with your Xmas shopping
Got that foodie in the family who's impossible to buy for? You'll be inundated with Christmas gift inspo, with loads of the finest food producers selling their wares at Taste of London. Or stock up your larder for an unforgettable Christmas spread.
5. There's a champagne clubhouse, darling
Swing by Champagne Laurent-Perrier's Club House dedicated to bubbles to truly get into the festive spirit. Need we say more? Oh, go on then. There'll also be other bars dotted around selling craft beers, spirits and, of course, mulled wine and hot toddies. ‘Tis the season.
