The culinary event of the year returns to Regent’s Park from 18th – 22nd June, and this year the festival is delighted to announce even more reasons why the event is the highlight of the foodie calendar…
This year sees the first outing for The Stubbins Food Partnerships Kitchen Garden, an outdoor cooking showcase. Visitors will be invited to watch top chefs such as Thomasina Miers, Claude Bosi, Sophie Michell, Daniel Doherty and Neil Rankin demonstrate their skills on the fire pit.
Electrolux is the headline sponsor for Taste of London, and this year will once again be showcasing The Electrolux Taste Theatre. This will act as the ‘main stage’ for the festival, where a selection of the world’s best chefs will be creating gastronomic delights on the latest appliances from the Electrolux Inspiration range. Firstly making his Taste Festivals debut is the lively two Michelin starred chef Tom Kerridge. Taste of London always delivers the most exceptional global chef talent and it doesn’t come much bigger than Massimo Bottura, chef patron of Osteria Francescana, a three Michelin star restaurant based in Modena, Italy which is number three in The World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards list and René Redzepi, of the world number one restaurant Noma. Taste of London wouldn’t be the same without one of its founding fathers, and arguably one of the country’s greatest chefs, Michel Roux Jr.
New for this year is the Electrolux Secret Ingredient – an experience that will empower and expand the cooking capabilities of all aspiring home cooks. Come and visit the Secret Ingredient and have an unforgettable sensory experience involving sound, smell, touch and taste using naturally sourced, matched seasonal ingredients.

Laurent-Perrier will once again host their popular, delicious and educational champagne Masterclass but with a unique twist for 2014 – following a Cuvée Rosé reception, visitors will experience a blind tasting incorporating three of their white champagnes.
Taste of London is welcoming Korea Foods for the first time who will be showcasing their country’s finest food alongside the wonderful Gizzi Erskine who will be hosting Korean masterclasses.
Guests looking for an oriental flavour can enjoy Taste of Thailand from the Royal Thai Embassy. Visitors will experience a selection of London’s best Thai restaurants, music, entertainment and cooking, alongside a number of Thai exhibitors.
