  • World’s Number One Chef, René Redzepi to Join Award Winning Line up at Taste of London Restaurant Festival

  • This year's Taste of Christmas is a fantastic day out. We went along on the first day, Friday 3rd December which leaves two days for you to pay a visit. There's plenty to do there, make sure you have enough of time to soak up all the demonstrations, workshops, tastings and stalls. Below are some pictures of the highlights

    Waitrose cookery school

    Waitrose is one of the main sponsors and are offering free cookery classes and wine tastings. We participated in their English sparkling wine tasting where a gentleman from Nyetimber gave a great 30 minute history of the Sussex-based wine producer which was accompanied by tastings of two of their delicious sparkling wines.

  • The festive season’s best food exhibition is less than a month away. All under one roof in the Excel Centre you’ll be able to find a boutique market selling all sorts of festive ingredients, decorations and gifts, 12 top London restaurants will be serving up their Christmas classics and finally, chefs such as Heston Blumenthal and Jean-Christophe Novelli will be sharing their cooking secrets in the taste theatres.

    The exhibition runs from 3rd – 5th December and is open from 10am to 6pm. Tickets cost £19 for basic entry if bought in advance. We would recommend getting the premium ticket at £31 as this includes £20 worth of crowns, the festival currency, which will allow you to try the food and do a spot of Christmas shopping.

  • It’s just three weeks to go until the ‘citywide celebration of eating out’ lifts off in London. The London Restaurant Festival is an opportunity for the city’s eateries to raise their profile and showcase their cooking. This is the second year that it has been running, and the organisers aim to have around 800 restaurants involved, compared to last year's 450.

    The restaurants that participate all put on ‘festival menus’ for the duration of the 15 days that the festival runs. The menus are intended to be a way to experience a restaurant that you haven’t tried before, but at a price that won’t be too damaging on the bank balance. All menus are a minimum of two courses and available for the duration of the festival.
