Taste of London returned to Regent Park last weekend 17th-21st June 2015. Thousands of culinary enthusiasts, tourists and foodies gathered to see what this year’s event had in store for them.
Yet again we are proud to say that Chef Academy Of London’s students have participated in Taste of London. In collaboration with the charity "Action Against Hunger", our students have actively taken part in raising funds for the organization. They've been involved in the preparation of excellent dishes and street food in the pop up restaurant.
Taste Festivals is a company that runs a variety of food festivals across the globe. The events feature mini-kitchens from different restaurants and live demonstrations from chefs. The restaurants featured include Michelin Star establishments. The Best in Taste award is awarded to the restaurant who serves the best dish at the festival.
This year’s Taste of London was not short of celebrity chefs. Our partner, restaurateur and Masterchef: The Professionals Judge, Marcus Wareing was present showcasing the Marcus Wareing Restaurants group. Marcus earned his first Michelin star at the young age of 25 as head chef at L'Oranger. At present day he is Chef Patron of the two Michelin starred Marcus located at the five star Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge. He then opened The Gilbert Scott at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel and most recently his new restaurant Tredwell's that offers customers a more casual dining experience. Marcus was serving up Tredwell’s famous Salted Caramel Soft Serve ice-cream and Pulled Pork sliders.
Another one of our restaurant partners, Bluebird, held a stand at the event with head chef Matt Robinson showcasing some of their classic Bluebird specialties as well as new creations that he has been working on, the dishes included Lobster Mac & Cheese served in the shell, Tuna Sashimi with Ponzu and Avacado, Steamed sticky pork buns and Eton mess ice cream.
