Between bites watch some of the world’s finest chefs live on stage, including Theo Randall, who will be cooking his delicious pan-fried scallops. “It’s a dish we’ve served at Taste of London for a few years and it’s very popular,” he says. “The salty pancetta, fresh chilli and capers make it a taste sensation.”
