Taste of London Winter 2014

Taste of London Winter 2014


It’s almost that time of year …. gone goes Taste of Christmas, in comes Taste of London Winter and it’s coming soon to Tobacco Dock where it will bring together not just restaurants, food and wine producers, but an exciting line-up of innovative and interactive demonstrations on cooking and eating for the Winter season.

I’ll be a Taste of London Winter newbie, having visited the Summer events, I’m looking forward to grabbing some inspiration for long winter months in the kitchen.

Electrolux is this year’s headline sponsors and the manufacturers’ ovens and hobs are used by a host of Michelin-starred chefs on site.  They’ve given me two tickets to giveaway, more details on how you can win them on the bottom of this blog post.

The Electrolux Taste Theatre will host live demonstrations from some of the world’s best chefs and this year you can expect to see Monica Galetti,

Pascal Aussignac, Neil Rankin, Raymond Blanc, Valentine Warner, Theo Randall and Michel Roux Jr.

This year, you can take part in Secret Ingredient and Electrolux tell me it’s going to be an “unforgettable sensory experience, involving sound, smell, touch and taste using naturally sourced, matched seasonal ingredients”. Sounds like something you just can’t miss.

Taste of London is ticketed in sessions, each will feature different chefs and experiences.

Thursday 20th November – Evening Session 18:00 – 22:00
Friday 21st November – Afternoon Session 11:00 – 16:00/Evening Session 17:00 – 22:00
Saturday 22nd November – Afternoon Session 11:00 – 18:00
Sunday 23rd November – Afternoon Session 11:00 – 17:00

You can book tickets to the event here.  For those who can’t make it to London, there are some free recipes from the chefs taking part in the Taste of London site.

The event is being held at Tobacco Dock, at the junction of Wapping Lane and Pennington Street in E1.  The nearest stations are Wapping overground and Shadwell Overground and DLR then it’s a short five-minute walk to the venue.
