Taste of London is almost here! To get the best out of Taste of London, we’re offering you our hard-won insider tips. It is a brilliant food festival that was once referred to as ‘Glastonbury for food-lovers’, and we totally agree. The restaurants — including toptable stars like l’Anima, Petrus, Bar Boulud, Coq d’Argent, Theo Randall among many others — producers, chefs and food experts are top drawer and you won’t want to miss anything good. So here are our toptable tips for beasting Taste of London 2012.
1. When everyone else is turning left, you turn right. The Taste people have laid out a generous foot traffic-flow scheme, but since the tickets are timed, great waves of Tasters arrive all at once. The restaurants in the front half, as it were, of the traffic flow are packed right away and you’ll have to queue for your taster-sized portions of yumminess. But if you boldly make your own way in the opposite direction, you’ll find no queues at some of the best restaurants on the site.
2. Glastonbury is famous for two things: music and mud. As Taste is the Glastonbury of food, it’s got its share of the squelchy stuff too. There are dry paths laid out, but they don’t cover every inch, so be ready for weather underfoot that may range from soft to sinking so you can end-run the queues on the walkways. Consider footwear. This is the English summer, after all.
3. Take some minutes to plan what demos you want to cover and head there in plenty of time so you get a front-row seat — or any seat at all. The phenomenon known as Jamie Oliver will certainly draw mega-crowds to the AEG Taste Theatre on Friday at lunchtime, so you don’t want to be squeezed into SRO at the back where you won’t even be able smell the Great British cooking he’s demonstrating, let alone see it. Other amazing big-name chefs who are appearing include Raymond Blanc, Vivek Singh, Angela Hartnett, Theo Randall, Michel Roux Jr, Gary Rhodes, Bruno Loubet, Atul Kochhar, Alexis Gauthier — and that’s just at one theatre.
4. Buy a starter bunch of Crowns and don’t worry about underbuying as they’ll be happy to sell you more. Crowns are the currency of Taste of London. You use Crowns to pay for tasting sized dishes at the restaurant stands and all kinds of great things at the exhibitors’ stands. If you want to go small to begin with, buy 30 Crowns just to get you started. There are cute girls wandering around ready to sell you more.
5. If you’re a British Airways Executive Club Gold or Silver Card holder, don’t forget your card. It will gain you entry to the British Airways luxurious — we’re quoting here — Executive Lounge. Which may come in handy in case of a shower and will be fun in any case.
6. Are you a grill hound? Do you love to BBQ? Then you belong in the Weber BBQ Challenge sponsored with Laverstoke Farm. You can do your own special culinary magic in front of people and may win a Weber BBQ or utensils or a meal for two at Gaucho. You have to sign up in advance and convince them of your grilling seriousness in 50 words or less.
7. Beer lover? Then as soon as you arrive at Taste, hie yourself over to the Explore World Beer tent to get yourself set up for one of their beer tastings. Love French wine? Then the same advice applies for heading straight for the Sud de France Wine Experience location as soon as you get inside the Taste festival. Fancy traditional English tea served on Wedgewood china and accompanied by a tea masterclass with a world-renowned expert? Then make a beeline for the Wedgewood Tea Bar.
8. Get a great deal on tickets through toptable. Click here for a pair of standard tickets for £40, a savings of 20% in advance, 40% at the door.
9. Finally, if you can’t wait to get to Taste, take advantage of the pre-Taste special offers at toptable restaurants like Asia de Cuba, Benares, Cinnamon Soho, Iberica Canary Wharf, Launceston Place, Modern Pantry, Patara, Spice Market London and Suda Thai Cafe. No queuing, no waiting, fabulous food.
