Representatives of three Québec companies displayed their products at this year’s prestigious Taste of London festival. The major public event was held in Regent’s Park, one of London’s biggest green spaces, from June 20 to 23. A number of internationally renowned chefs based in the United Kingdom, including Raymond Blanc and Michel Roux Jr., took part in the festival.
- Citadelle – maple syrup
- Domaine Pinnacle – ice cider and Ungava gin
- Épices de Cru (Spicetrekkers) – spices, teas and chocolate
Personnel from the Québec government office in London (DGQL) provided the Québec participants with support, to help make their Taste of London experience a success.
Épices de Cru managers expressed their satisfaction on Spicetrekkers’ Facebook page: “We are proud to be part of the Québec delegation at the Taste of London food fair....Cheers!”
The first Taste of London festival took place in 2004. Held in the heart of the British capital, the yearly event draws over 50,000 visitors.
With 200 booths, it is now considered to be the world’s biggest food fair, featuring restaurateurs and chefs, food products and wines, cooking demonstrations and workshops.
A number of countries take part each year in order to promote tourism and present local products. There are currently 18 Taste festivals around the world, in places like Oslo, Moscow, Dubai, Sydney, Cape Town and Mumbai.
