Omnivore Food Festival comes to Shoreditch

Omnivore food festival

Founded in France, this travelling food fest arrived in London last year, remaining firmly under the radar. This year, things are different: they’re setting up shop on Brick Lane from Friday 21 until Sunday 23 October, and calling in a whole host of big names to champion the next generation of superchefs. Names already confirmed for the line-up include Amandine Chaignot from Rosewood, Portland’s Merlin Labron-Johnson and Gregory Marchand of Frenchie fame.

Taking place inside a family-style ‘house’ (complete with a lounge and dining room), the three-day festival will include dinners, demonstrations and talks from some of the best in the business. There’s also a big cooking party planned, during which 18 chefs will all take to the stove at once; we doubt the ‘too many cooks…’ saying applies here. 

The Omnivore food festival takes place from Friday 21 until Sunday 23 October. Entry is free, while ticketed events are priced up to a maximum of £90 and can be booked via the Omnivore website
