If you fancy bringing a culinary feast from the Far East straight to your plate then you need to head to Potter Field Park (at the foot of London’s Tower Bridge) for the annual Chinese Food Festival on 8th – 10th September.
The festival will consist of three areas – a food fair, discovery journey and a cooking masterclass area.
The food fair will see over 30 street food stalls offering authentic dishes such as Chongqing Noodles, Taiwanese Fried Chicken and traditional soup from Henan. There’ll also be pop-up bars along with live music and fascinating Chinese cultural performances.
At Discovery Journey, three of London’s popular Chinese chefs will present diners with a bespoke tasting menu, designed to transport you on a gastronomic journey through the wonders of Chinese cooking, encompassing everything from the traditional to the avant-garde.
Diners will enjoy six of the very best oriental dishes, starting with the iconic Vegetarian Duck and ending with the Osmanthus Flower and Chestnut Cake.
You can then participate in a live Lee Kum Kee masterclass in collaboration with award-winning School of Wok founder Jeremy Pang. Through a series of professional hands-on demonstrations, you can learn how to cook two delicious classic Chinese dishes alongside your family and friends.
Experts will guide you to create your gourmet dish in each cooking session. Places are free of charge and can be reserved at the festival on a first-come, first-served basis. The sessions will take place every hour from 12pm to 8:15pm on Saturday and 12pm to 5:45pm on Sunday with 10 workstations available per session.
The festival is free to enter and will be open from midday to 10pm on Friday and Saturday and until 7pm on Sunday.
