Taste of London, the pop-up restaurant festival with its 10 years history, kicked off on Friday 21 June in Regent’s Park. After having a great experience in 2012, I booked a VIP ticket to experience 40 of the best restaurants in London showcasing their finest dishes.
The BA height cuisine experience showcased its First Class cuisine on its Hong Kong route. Something to look forward to in the next year? We’ll see.
Next, bring on the restaurant menus! Some of my favourite dishes below from the various places:
I couldn’t believe this. £15 for 3 courses tasting experience in the pop-up Gauthier restaurant with table service. We even met Gauthier afterwards to congratulate him on a great menu.
After all that eating, a moment of rest in the VIP lounge with a glass of champagne and my Taste of London recipe book.
I watched the Roux chef family in action in the Electrolux Taste Theatre – three generations of Roux, Michel Jnr, Albert and Emily on one stage!
Despite the weather being somewhat mixed, (as expected in the usual British fashion!), fellow foodies with their discerning palates ran around the festival to try the popular dishes du jour of the various restaurants. This definitely felt like the London fashion week equivalent for the foodie community!
I am now hooked on Gauthier Soho and you will all hear from me about his experiential tasting menu in weeks to come!
Next week, bring on Wimbledon centre court!
