We recently spent an afternoon at Taste of London as guests of our friends at The Firepod We hadn’t seen them for awhile so we were keen to find out all about what has been happening over the past couple of years with their pizza ovens. If you don’t know about them, do look them up. We have been huge fans of theirs for years (since they were on Kickstarter and trying to launch. They are now so successful they are selling in the US too!)
Plus we hadn’t been to Taste before and were also keen to spend an afternoon wandering in this corner of Regent’s Park dedicated to all things foodie.
Getting to the event in Regent’s park is easy (there are other Taste events so check the venue when you see dates and go to book tickets), you can either jump off the Tube at Regent’s Park or Baker Street, it is pretty much half way between the two and then walk to the Park, Taste is signposted. There is parking around the Inner Circle in Regent’s Park (pay and display) but you take a chance on whether or not you will be able to find a space.
Once inside it is easy to see why this event is always so popular, it is foodie heaven. There are almost 30 different restaurants serving a huge variety of food. Everything from crumpets with bone marrow and shredded beef to chunky monkey dough and banoffee ice cream. Many of the options are vegetarian, some are vegan and there are dairy free options too. Plus of course there are lots of places to find a tipple or two and lots of companies selling foodie related items.
Being in Regent’s Park there is also plenty of space to grab some food and to just sit. To take it all in and to catch up with friends, something we will be doing if we go again next year.
There are two sessions each day of the event so decide when you book tickets if you want to go at lunch time or the evening and go hungry!!
The next event is towards the end of November at the Tobacco Dock so will be a perfect opportunity to stock up on Christmas themed goodies I am sure.
