Taste of London is back for a four-day Christmas nosh-fest and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever. The ultimate foodie festival is parking up at Wapping’s Tobacco Dock with mini dishes from top London restaurants. Expect a belter of a line-up including the likes of British-Afghan fusion barbecue Cue Point, Northern Sri Lankan party food purveyors Jaffna Kitchen and cult Taiwanese chicken joint Mr Ji.
The taste adventure doesn’t stop there, because Taste of London is teaming up with Tiny Rebel to smoke up a storm at The Fire Pit, a series of open-flame cooking demos where hungry Londoners can try exclusive dishes from Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich of Honey & Co and Adejoké Bakare from Chishuru who will bring her unique West African style to the pit.
There’ll be a bunch of cheese, wine and fizz tastings to take part in too, and this year’s festival also features the world’s first Brussel Sprout Bar, where top chefs will be creating inventive dishes themed around everyone’s least favourite Christmas vegetable.
Aside from stuffing your face, there’ll be cocktail masterclasses to prepare you for hosting season and a shopping quarter will see you stocking up on edible Christmas gifts.
Tickets start from £17, with a range of different packages and Christmas party bundles available depending on how big of an appetite you have. A lot of sessions are already sold out though, so be quick about it if you fancy a festive feast!
