As the nights draw in, Taste of London is soon opening its door at Tobacco Dock from the 19 to the 22nd of November.
As we did in previous years, some of our culinary school Chef Academy students are joining the professionals, volunteering to present during those days, focused on gastronomy. For each session, Taste of London brings together a range of professionals from the catering and hospitality industry to share together this passion for food, for beverage, in other terms, for gastronomy. You would be able to discover the wonderful venue of Tobacco Dock. One of London's most historical venue, initially built for the important tobacco industry in 1811. Taste of London is the occasion to see incredible dishes from some of the best world's chefs, but also the opportunity to discover over 200 food and drinks brands through interactive workshops, demonstrations, or tastings you can get involved in during the days of the festival.
Since 2001, Taste of London has been closely working with the international humanitarian association ACTION AGAINST HUNGER. This is also where we get involved. Between their courses for chefs, some of our students are volunteers to join the ACTION AGAINST HUNGER team. For over more than 30 years, this charity is fighting against malnutrition and the non-access to safe and drinking water in more than 45 countries and beneficial for 7 million of people each year. By joining that event, we hope we would help to raise funds to fight against malnutrition. Note that only £1 is enough to feed a child per day and £10 to provide safe clean and drinking water to 500 people.
