The world’s greatest restaurant festival is back in Regent’s Park from 18-22 June where you can taste dishes from London’s hottest restaurants, enjoy wine and beer tasting, take part in masterclasses and shop from 200 food and drink stalls.

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.”
