Housed in the glorious Regents Park from the 17th to the 21st of June this summer is London’s most exciting food festival. There will be signature dishes from some of London’s hottest restaurants, individual twists on summer dishes from top chefs, live demonstrations, and even master classes. Five days of summer fun in the sun with exquisite food and fine drinks; what better way to spend your time in London?
