Taste of Christmas
The Taste of Christmas Festival offers three days of seasonal indulgence, tasting and shopping.
It brings together London's finest restaurants and a selection of fine foods to create a gourmet banquet. Visitors are invited to try out famous chefs' seasonal dishes and go behind the scenes at London's top restaurants to discover some culinary secrets.
Leading sommeliers and wine writers will offer their seasonal suggestions. There are also beer tastings, beer masterclasses and a boutique beer market.
There are plentiful Christmas shopping opportunities: visitors can replenish their cellars and stock their larders, purchasing seasonal foods that range from specialist cheeses and preserves to luxurious chocolates and even Christmas turkeys. Purchases can be home-delivered in time for Christmas.
Other tutored tasting opportunities include Taste Cheese, Taste Chocolate and Taste Cookery School.
The 2013 Festival will be held in late November, with another change in location- taking place at Tobacco Dock.
