Taste of London – The Summer Edition 2018
We can agree that it brought together 40 of capitals finest culinary gods and one of London’s finest parks, Regent Park and turned it into food fulfilled celebration. From the likes of newbies including Ikoyi and El Pastor to ROKA, BAO, Duddell’s and many more joining in for another Summer at Taste of London, not forgetting the Shard’s very own Hutong, making an appearance.
It certainly was an event that Local Spoon could not miss out on.
We started the day by sampling some deliciousness at the Artisan food section from slushy cider from Mr Scrumpy (perfect to cool us down) to some Welsh cheese with the Snowdonia Cheese Company. Before we took a stroll up to the Fire Pit, where we saw Chefs such as David Carter from SMOKESTAK show off their BBQ skills on an open flame…hot!

Celebrity Cruise Tasting Menu with Cornelius Gallagher
Celebrity Cruises returned to Taste of London for its sixth year and we were fortunate enough to get a flavour of what guests can expect onboard when the new Celebrity Edge cruise ship when it sets sail in November with a menu designed by Michelin-starred Associate Vice President, Cornelius Gallagher.
During Taste of London 2018, Local Spoon got a flavour of the Cosmopolitan menu.
Celebrity Cruises has worked closely with TV show The Wine Show, to bring guests perfectly paired wines to the dishes to enliven their palates. Not only that, but guests will get to experience the largest and rarest wine collections at sea. with an expert team of onboard sommeliers to showcase wines handpicked by Joe and Amelia.
The culinary adventure does not stop there…
The Edge will also be offering guests “an immersive fusion of technology, animation and dining” with its Le Petit Chef concept, an animated character who appears on guests’ plates and prepares courses “before their eyes”. Similar to that which has been in London at TT Liquor.
The Edge will spend its first season sailing around Eastern and Western Caribbean before it heads to Europe and explores the likes of Spain and Italy in 2019. Click here to find out more.
What I love about @tasteoflondon is that it gives you the opportunity to try out dishes from more than one restaurants that you have never been at the same time in the lovely Regent's Park. One of the highlights was Black Angus beef rib from @rokarestaurant 🐄 So tender 😍 Have never been to the restaurant but this is tempting me now!!! Did you go to Taste of London?

After seeing so much hype about this Grana Padano doughnut from @sartoriarestaurant in @tasteoflondon I knew I had to try it and I’m so glad I did🤩🍩🧀! It was the most different and unique doughnut I’ve ever had! And it’s actually hard for me to describe how it tasted, because it reminded me of a Persian dish “tahchin” and all I was thinking while eating it was how these two could be related in terms of ingredients😂 But it was really good and generally I had a great time at this year’s @tasteoflondon and although I don’t like the winter edition as much as the summer one, I can’t wait for the next event😉! Did you go in the past few days? And which dishes were your favourite😋? . . . . . #food #instafood #foodie #instafoodie #foooodieee #foodstagram #foodporn #foodgasm #foodlover #foodblogger #london #londonfood #londonfoodie #londoneats #eeeeeats #totastemaker #toplondonrestaurants #golondonfood #doughnut #donut #granapadano #granapadanocheese #cheese #truffle #doughnutporn #donutporn #yummy #nomnom
