National Geographic Traveller Food Festival | The world’s best food, in Islington
Addicted to travel?
Here’s the road to recovery.
Because the National Geographic Traveller Food Festival is coming to town, and aiming to take all the pesky legwork out of trekking the globe by bringing the best bit – the food – from basically everywhere on earth into one place.
It’ll be the first time that National Geographic have undertaken such an endeavour. It’s going to take place over this coming weekend, the 20th & 21st of July, in the vast Business Design Centre on Upper Street, which they’re stuffing with food stalls from every deliciously interesting world cuisine, from Brazilian to Bangladeshi, from Iranian to Indonesian, from Turkish to Thai… you get the idea. And yes, there will be lots of samples.
As well as the stalls, there’s also going to be a stage showcasing cooking demos & talks from esteemed chefs like Raymond Blanc, Adam Handling, Josh Katz, John Torode, Romy Gill, Tim Anderson, and Zoe Adjonyoh, annnnd there’s going to be an area set aside for masterclasses too. You can learn how to make “a tofu and seaweed charcoal burger”, brew Jing Tea (the tea of choice for “more than 100 Michelin-starred restaurants”), sip spiced rum, make Montenegro’s unusual local dishes, and a lot more.
The, last but not least, there’s a wine tasting theatre, in which you can, well, taste a lot of wine. Then travel to the most exotic destination of all…
NOTE: The National Geographic Traveller Food Festival takes place on July 20th & 21st in the Islington Business Design Centre. Tickets cost £22 and are available at their website right HERE.
