The winter edition of the popular Taste festival has been confirmed for the tail end of this November.
From Thursday to Sunday and spread out across six sessions, around 25,000 Londoners will be able to try plates from the likes of acclaimed, perma-crowded Sri Lankan spot Hoppers, Tooting favourite Juici Jerk, which specialises in Carribean cooking, and Cin Cin, the Italian bar in kitchen that opened in Fitzrovia earlier this year after success in Brighton.
More restaurants will be announced in due course, but Taste are also promising to “transform [Tobacco Dock] into a winter wonderland”, and will offer hands-on food and drink masterclasses alongside the bites to eat. The festival’s fire pit will also return, with a roster of chefs cooking over it. The line-up is likewise soon to be revealed.
Besides the food and drink, Taste will also lay on live music and what they’re calling “special entertainment”.
Taste was founded in 2004 in London, and since has toured 15 cities across the globe; the company is also behind the World Restaurant Awards.
Tickets, which start at £17 for entry, are on sale now at london.tastefestivals.com
