Just two weeks to go! Champagne Laurent-Perrier’s top picks for making the most of your time at taste of london 2016
After much anticipation, Taste of London 2016 will open in less than a fortnight. Ahead of its return, Laurent-Perrier has put together our top picks for making the most of this must-see celebration of London’s food & drinks scene.
With stands serving up innovative dishes from London’s latest and greatest restaurants, cookery demonstrations by world-renowned chefs, masterclasses and exciting, one-off pop-ups, the only challenge will be working out how to fit it all into your visit!
Meet at The Laurent-Perrier Club House – Standing proudly at the entrance to this year’s festival and serving a range of our most popular cuvées including Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé, The Laurent-Perrier Club House is the perfect place to meet friends, or to head to for a restorative glass after a busy day exploring the stands and stations. Be sure to share your champagne toasts using #LPatTaste for the chance to win a Cuvée Rosé Gift Set.
Discover the AEG Taste Theatre – The AEG Taste Theatre will host live cooking demonstrations from world-renowned chefs such as Pierre Koffmann, Steve Groves of Roux at Parliament Square and The Cinnamon Club’s Vivek Singh to name but a few. These first class chefs will cook some of their favourite recipes to transform everyday ingredients into extraordinary dishes in front of your very eyes.
Learn something new at The Whole Foods Market Kitchen – With its open flame grill and ingredients garden Whole Foods Market Kitchen is a place to explore rustic cooking on the fundamental methods of cooking – grilling, fermenting and smoking – in a series of demonstrations from top chefs and food writers including Gus Crosby of London newcomer, Sea Containers and the team behind high altitude, all-hours hotspot, KOJAWAN. Working with quality, fresh ingredients you can take part in butchery demonstrations or grill the pitmasters on the art of barbecuing, just in time for the summer’s peak.
Take in the outdoor atmosphere with live music at The Bandstand – Sit back, relax and absorb the atmosphere in stunning Regent’s Park while live music acts play in the background providing the perfect setting for your day out with friends. From simple acoustic sets featuring live vocals with guitar to more energising ensembles, The Bandstand is the perfect stop for sitting down and whiling away a few hours in the city sun.
Shop for the deliciously unusual and artisanal – Alongside Taste’s fantastic range of innovative masterclasses and mouthwatering stands, Taste of London has over 200 artisan stalls to discover, each offering delicious, interesting and tantalising discoveries. Wander through the Small Producers’ Market and sample produce from the likes of Joe and Steph’s gourmet popcorn and Somerset Charcuterie’s delicious cheeses. For the gourmet foodie, try out Belazu’s oil and vinegars, produced from a combination of the best Mediterranean ingredients that have been tried and tested over their 25 years in the business. For those with a sweet tooth, why not try La Di Da Cupcakes and sample their bespoke cupcakes. Perfect with a glass of champagne!
