Taste of London will be transforming Regent’s Park once again for the summer edition of this (now) enormous culinary event. The festival of food takes place 14-18 June, and if you haven’t booked your tickets yet then Harden’s has a tasty offer for you.
Our readers can get discounted rates on entry to Taste of London when they book online. Just use code HARDENS at tasteoflondon.co.uk for £14 tickets on Wednesday & Thursday, £18 tickets on Friday, and £25 on Saturday & Sunday. Tickets on the door are £17, £21 and £28 respectively.
While you’re there why not check out The Residence? It’s an exclusive fine dining experience, brand new to Taste this year, where festival-goers can enjoy a kitchen table-style experience from a trio of chefs. Taking up residence are Alex Atala of D.O.M, Ana RoÅ¡ of Hisa Franko, Slovenia, and Ollie Dabbous, who’s London restaurant Dabbous will close later this year. Four taster-sized dishes will be served with wine while diners watch the chefs at work and quiz them afterwards. The Residence is being curated by Andrea Petrini, Time Magazine’s ‘God of Food’, and will be hosted by Paulo de Tarso, owner of Margot restaurant.
The Taste Residence certainly isn’t cheap, it starts from £125, but for food buff-ery it’s the place to visit at this year’s festival. For your £125 you’ll receive four courses with wine, as well as the full VIP package – £20 of Taste credit, fast track entry to the festival, access to the VIP lounge, a glass of Laurent Perrier Champagne and the Taste recipe journal.
