  • MODERN TASTE OF BRITAIN FOOD TOUR

    london food tours

    Inspired by the world of flavours found in Britain, many local Brits are creating their own spectacular eateries, where they can show off their local ingredients, local dishes, and British culinary skills. The movement to keep ingredients sustainable and local is taking over Britain and this tour aims to explore the “Modern Tastes of Britain” from the farmers in the market to the shops to the actual locales that are coming up with these fabulous new gastronomic concepts.

    BRITISH FOOD – TAKING FLAVOURS TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Britain hasn’t always had the best reputation for gourmet cooking. Aside from Tea, Beer and Fish & Chips, many visitors to London don’t even know what to consider “British Food”! For many years, Brits themselves haven’t really fussed too much about taking a strong interest in “Traditional” or “Local” food trends like other countries around the world. As a result, no other country welcomes international food with the enthusiasm of Great Britain. Everywhere you look, you can see rich varieties of world flavours – Britain truly has it all. However, FOOD has become one of the biggest trends in the UK – changing the entire culinary scene.

As much as Brits enjoy eating the flavours of the world, a new wave of fabulous restaurants are opening with incredible concepts – and they are 100% BRITISH! The international influence in food has led to an incredible new-found British interest in creating their own culinary fusions, causing many foodies to take traditional international recipes to the next level with local flare.  On this tour, you will discover this local flare on a number of levels – starting in the markets and finishing in one of London’s most incredible British chocolate shops.

DISCOVER THE EAST END

The East End is one of London’s most fascinating areas. With a long history of overpopulation, immigrants and poverty.

The East End has been known since the 19th Century as one of Britain’s poorest areas. After World War II, much of the neighbourhood was bombed and many people were relocated. A consistent wave of re-building has powered the area for a few decades now. Despite new buildings and many large companies that are now located in the East End, there is still a very alternative subculture that thrives in this eclectic area, where street art is a way of life and hipsters roam the streets.

Despite the recent move towards a slight degree of gentrification, the East End is still full of old, run-down streets that capture an eerie reminiscence of days past. This tour was designed to show the different faces of the East End and give you a good idea of what has changed and has remained the same over time.

London Walking Tours

There’s no better way to get to London than exploring London on foot. A few years ago, there weren’t many London walking tours to choose from aside from the classic ones like the Jack The Ripper Tour or the London Ghost Tour.

Today you can find many more options for London walking tours that help visitors really get a feel for what London has to offer. Depending on what your interests are, there are a lot of options to choose from.

Unlike the big bus tours where you only see the highlights from a distance, walking around with a guide, can often mean discovering hidden places that most people just pass by because they are too busy running from one end of the city to the other.

Many Londoners are also starting to go on walking tours because they are aware of how little they know of this great city, and are keen to discover more!

One particularly interesting way to get to know London, is through Food Tours. London food tours are a new concept that has been breaking out in cities all over the world. They combine culture, history, tastings, and exploring new territory on foot, with a local expert. Unlike other London walking tours, where you simply walk from place to place, Food Tours allow you to go into shops, get to know new places and experience tastes that you may have never tried before.

A day in the Life of a London Food Guide

What does it mean to be a London Food Guide? It’s definitely not the most common term. The idea of “Food Tourism” is still relatively new in London, unlike traditionally famous “foodie” cities such as Rome, Paris or Barcelona. Despite its outdated reputation for boring food, London has gone above and beyond to become one of the world’s leaders in culinary innovation and limitless selections of unique cuisines. Even most of the locals have a hard time keeping up with all of the new restaurants, markets, pop-ups and food stands that are opening at an ever-increasing speed. Food seems to be one of London’s biggest past-times, and if you don’t have the time or energy to research what’s out there, having a Food Guide in London, might be one of the best choices you could make!

The “art” of knowing where to go and what to eat is not something that one can easily master. It takes a lot of active involvement and constant research (i.e. EATING) to find London’s best-kept secrets. As a London Food Guide, I can say with confidence that it isn’t just about knowing which places are the most popular or the most famous. Not to say that it isn’t helpful to check out Food Blogs and interesting articles put together by other foodies, but the best research I’ve done has been with my mouth.  Some of the best food I’ve eaten in London I found by exploring and trying it out.  Not everyone has the time or luxury to eat their way around London, so Food Guides can be a real asset for those wanting to know more about what London has to offer.

There aren’t as many certified “Food Guides” in London as you would find in Italy, France or Spain, however as London’s food popularity grows, so will the number of culinary experts. I moved here from Rome, where there is a highly saturated number of “Food Guides”. When I do London food tours with people, one of their number one questions they as me is WHY I moved from Rome to London to do Food Tours. My answer is easy – the food scene in London is about to hit its peak and it is still very un-discovered territory. For a Food Guide, it’s amazing to be one of the first people to design and create interesting tours that teach people more about the foods they are tasting, the cultures behind those foods, and how they’ve influenced what we currently define “British Food”.

One of the most amazing things I’ve found in London is the prime interest in cooking, foods, and an openness to trying unique tastes that you would have never imagined putting together. From Heston Blumenthal to Jaime Oliver to Gordan Ramsey, English chefs are taking the culinary world by storm – if that isn’t proof of where the UK’s food culture is headed, I don’t know what is!  As a London Food Guide, it’s exciting to see how this has reflected in a growing interest in London’s food scene and I’m excited to show what we have to offer. Get ready world, London is on its way to becoming one of the most famous foodie cities in the world!
