As tickets go on Monday 12 March, the capital’s largest open air food and drink festival will welcome a raft of international talent including Wolfgang Puck, Nuno Mendes, Bruno Loubet and David Chang to name just a few. New food trends will be discovered as chefs from around the world take to the AEG Theatre to showcase international flavours, collaborating and going head to head with culinary masters from different cultures.

Internationally celebrated chef, Wolfgang Puck, is looking forward to visiting the capital this summer: “We all know London is one of the great food cities of the world. We’re all very excited to be participating in Taste of London.”

Celebrating London’s vibrant restaurant scene, Taste of London will help set the stage for a truly international summer, boasting a total of 11 Michelin stars with a line up including Le Gavroche, Gauthier Soho, Rhodes 24, Club Gascon, Petrus, Maze, Benares and Tamarind.

Jason Atherton is one of many chefs looking forward to staring alongside so many of London’s best chefs and those flying in from overseas for the show: “London is without doubt the world’s number one when it comes to finding quality cuisine from all around the world. Where else could you find as many Japanese and Vietnamese restaurants as French and Italian? It’s remarkable and Taste of London is a brilliant opportunity for people to enjoy a flavour of what London will be serving up to the rest of the world this summer.”

Over 50,000 visitors can expect to dine from 40 of the capital’s top restaurants, serving a mix of Asian, European and South American cuisine, enjoy international flavours from Malaysia, Brazil, Peru and the Caribbean and pick up the latest ingredients from 200 quality food and drink producers.

British Airways will once again be offering first class service at its Executive Club Lounge whilst Laurent-Perrier champagne masterclasses promise to delight the senses with bespoke ‘tout les sens’ masterclass sessions involving champagne, food and flowers.
