Review: Taste of London 2010

Taste of London
Taste of London 2010 is here, and for one weekend only Regent’s Park has been transformed into a gastronomic wonderland. Over 30 of London’s top restaurants are on hand along with some further afield culinary treats, chef demos and producer stalls.

The festival’s got a bit of slack recently for being too big and over-commercialised, but whilst it certainly is sizeable (and we’re prone to getting lost in Regent’s Park at the best of times) we can’t say this in any way hampered our enjoyment of a composite lunch of turbot with braised oxtail from Odettes, Bentley’s oysters, seven-hour confit lamb from Tom’s Kitchen, snails from Le Gavroche, and Pimms foie gras (yes, really) from Club Gascon. Now, that’s a balanced meal if ever there was one.

Other assorted highlights include Chateau Civrac, a wine made in Bordeaux by a Cornishman; some delicious dried fish snacks in the Taste of Malaysia area; and a coconut shy.

All the details are on the Taste of London website, and if you check their Twitter feed, there may be some last-minute ticket discounts to be had, too.
