From 21-24 November, sample food from some of London’s best restaurants, enjoy cookery demonstrations and live entertainment, and shop for goodies at the boutique Christmas food market at Taste of Christmas – the culinary event of the festive season.

Following its move to Tobacco Dock, this year’s Taste of Christmas promises to be bigger and better than ever before. New to the event for 2013 are restaurants including newly Michelin-starred Ametsa with Arzak Instruction, sleek Kensington Italian Acciuga, Jamie Oliver’s carnivorous City venture Barbecoa, Shoreditch BBQ joint Beard to Tail, pop-up maestros Disco Bistro, and gastropub favourite The Truscott Arms – plus flagship offerings from Mark Hix in the form of Tramshed and Hix Soho. Serving up signature dishes alongside these exciting new additions will be a selection of Taste festival favourites including Benares, The Cinnamon Club, Club Gascon, Dehesa, and more.

Top restaurant chefs including Mark Hix, Le Gavroche’s Michel Roux Jr and Monica Galetti, and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall will join TV cooks including Valentine Warner, patissier Eric Lanlard and Gizzi Erskine as they put their individual twists on Christmas classics in the Electrolux Taste Theatre. Indulge in patisserie masterclasses, cheese-and-wine tastings, chocolate workshops and cocktail mixology demonstrations as you learn the culinary secrets of the experts in the interactive Electrolux Chefs’ Secrets sessions.

If you’re looking for unique ingredients and foodie gifts, head to the event’s Christmas food-and-drink market. With more than 180 food and drink stalls – from the highest-quality chocolate and confectionery to seasonal ingredients and wines – you will find all you need to create the perfect Christmas.

And if you need to put your feet up during the day, you can relax in style in the Laurent-Perrier Champagne Bar.

With all this on offer, plus fireside cooking demonstrations in the fire pit, an oyster bar, and plenty more ways to fill your stomach, it’s time to book your tickets for Taste of Christmas 2013!
