Banquet in the park
London’s leading gastronomy festival, back for its 7th year
The summer is well and truly arriving, and with it are coming along reams of London festivals. Every week there’s a different event, spanning the most diverse themes. Gastronomy is one of them, and for four days, Regent’s Park will be the stage for the festival Taste of London, the biggest of its kind in the city.
This being its seventh year, the event will bring together Chefs from forty of the most famous restaurants of London, like the already traditional regulars of the festival: Le Gavrouche, Rhodes Twenty Four, Tom’s Kitchen and Bentley’s. At Taste of London, you purchase your ticket for admission and then you need to get yourself some ‘Crowns’, the official currency used at the festival, to eat in the restaurants. £1 gives you two Crowns, and the average price for the dishes is 9 crowns (i.e. £4.50).
For those intrigued by Latin-American cuisine, keep an eye on Gaucho, the famous Argentinean chain. And don’t miss out on the Brazilian cocktails in one of the opening events, organised by Steamond Travel and the Brazilian Tourist Board Embratur.
