Celebrating all things foodie in London, the London Food Festival is running from the 4th to 18th October 2010.
The food festival was originally created by restaurant critic Fay Maschler in 2009 to showcase the sheer diversity of eating out in London. From the 3 star Michelin Star restaurants through to the small family run bistros that are a favourite of locals….and everything in between.
One of the highlights of the festival takes place on the London Eye which will turn into a moving restaurant where guests can dine with some of the worlds top chefs, including Gordon Ramsay, Daniel Boulud, Georgio Locatelli and Angela Hartnett.
To help festival goers find exactly what they want, special London Restaurant Festival Menus have been created. You can search for the restaurants of your choice on the web site and then click through to the special menu for that restaurant.
If you have always wanted to try out foods from around the world, but were never sure where to go, then head over to the Old Spitalfields Market on the 11-13 Oct and 15-16 Oct to sample a raft of different flavours and cooking styles from all around the world.
Finally, if you can’t make it to the restaurant, let the restaurant come to you with Street Kitchen. From the 4 to 18 October 2010 the Street Kitchen will be at Covent Garden, and at Old Spitalfields Market from 15th October. The idea is Jun Tanaka and Mark Jankel will cook gourmet food from a mobile kitchen for Londoners to takeaway such as home smoked salmon and braised featherblade of beef.
