Homemade glazed buns for Bar Boulud's Tunisienne hot dogs


Pascal Aussignac peddles his Marmite Royale, winner of festival's Best Taste award

If you wish to give this year’s Taste of London restaurant festival a miss rather than pay £24 for the right to pay top £ for small plates of food you eat standing up that’s your business. Sorry, complaints about the high admission price are now so old and tired the first ones were texted on Nokia 1100s.

This post is about what not to miss if you’re not missing Taste. The remaining sessions are this afternoon, tonight and tomorrow after.

I’m very pleased that Club Gascon’s Marmite Royale won the Best in Taste award. I hosted the world preview, if not premiere, of Pascal Aussignac’s invention at my June 11th BurgerMonday pop-up at Comptoir Gascon (photos).

Full disclosure: My four festival recommendations below are based on a limited sampling. Forget Hoovers: I’d have needed a Flymo Turbo 400 to graze all of muddy Regent’s Park.
