Eat your way around the world
Food seems to be the new rock n roll. And if you love to try new dishes there are plenty of places to go. The Taste festivals (see our video on Taste of London above) allow you to try food from around the world as well as meet celebrity chefs. The next Taste festival in London is Taste of Christmas - billing itself as "a world of festive food and drink" - at London's ExCel centre from 7-9 December. You need to book so check out the web site here. At the other end of the country, Taste of Edinburgh will be held at The Meadows from 6-8 July. Check out all the details here. And if you want to rub shoulders with Britain's best known celebrity chef consider attending The Big Feastival held on the Oxfordshire farm owned by former Blur bassplayer-turned-farmer Alex James. Jamie Oliver will be on site as well as bands including Paloma Faith, Texas and Razorlight, pop-up restaurants and cooking demonstrations. For ticket prices and more details go to the web site. Bon apetit!
