The To Do List

Taste of London

Britain's capital city is home to some of the finest chefs, kitchens and restaurants in the world, but occasionally - during the inevitable midweek Pret a Manger lunch-break low, for instance - it's easy to forget just how good we've got it. Enter Taste of London.

The Taste festival has been gathering steam since launching at Somerset House in 2004, and now takes place in 15 locations across the world. Host cities include Amsterdam, Cape Town and Dubai, with London's own festival held from the 21st - 24th June in Regent's Park.

There's an enormous amount of good food crammed into one place. Taste of London's exhibitors hold a combined 11 Michelin stars, with restaurants - 40 in total - including Le Gavroche, Petrus, Maze, Tamarind, Whitechapel Gallery and Berbecoa, and chefs including Wolfgang Puck, Nuno Mendes, Bruno Loubet and David Chang.

If you're keen to tentatively explore London's fine dining scene, it's certainly worth a look. And if you consider yourself 'a foodie', attendance is almost a moral obligation.
