Amongst the foodie delicacies on offer will be Indian chocolates, delicately dipped in vibrant violet and orange spices, decadent steak and cheese sandwiches and steaming bowls of piping-hot ramen. Why not accompany your dish with one of the multitude of rich artisan spirits on offer or your own gin cocktail mix with The Botanist's herb garden?
If you're still peckish, browse through the stalls of 22 of the capital’s most acclaimed restaurants, including cult Taiwanese restaurant BAO and Harden’s Top Newcomer of 2017, Jamavar.
Once you've had your fill from the delectable markets, head to the live cooking performances at the AEG Taste Theatre, where the hero-chefs of modern day cuisine will be cooking up a storm. Hosted by food journalist and Instagram star Rosie Birkett, chefsOllie Dabbous (Henrietta), Jackson Boxer (Brunswick House), Lee Westcott (Typing Room), Sebby Holmes (Farang) and Sam Kamienko (Ellory) will take to the stage to demonstrate the latest trends in food and flavour.
If you’re inspired and feeling brave, try your hand at one of the culinary masterclasses on offer: Christmas cooking, cocktail-shaking, or gift-wrapping (thanks, Laurent-Perrier) are amongst the highlights. And brace yourselves – the AEG Get Baking class will feature former Great British Bake Off Finalist, Richard Burr. We'll be first in line.
But we've saved the best 'til last. This year's Taste of London will also play host to perhaps the most seminal competition of the century: The World Cheese Awards 2017. London sensation, The Cheese Bar, will serve dishes throughout the festival using the nominated cheeses, so you'll have a chance to judge the winner for yourself.
Escape the winter chills to indulge in this decadent three-day feast!
