A Brief History

Taste Festivals Around The World
From just one show in London, UK, fifteen years ago, Taste has rapidly grown to become part of the social season for foodies, restaurant-lovers, and chef groupies in 18 different cities around the globe. Wherever it is in the world, Taste represents foodie heaven: stunning food prepared by the city’s greatest restaurants, world famous chefs, superb drinks and outstanding entertainment, all set in stunning outdoor surroundings. “Taste Festivals could make a case for being the first organisations to introduce the concepts of pop ups and small plates” The Wall Street Journal
