Take Your Tastebuds on a World Tour at The National Geograpic Traveller Food Festival

National Geographic Traveller (UK) has unveiled the full lineup of exhibitors and guest speakers for its inaugural Food Festival which takes place between 20-21 July 2019 at The Business Design Centre in London.

The event offers visitors a chance to take their taste buds on a world tour, with the main hall featuring stalls from destinations as far-flung as Dominica and Thailand. The festival will also be offering an insight into how some of the world’s most exciting dishes are created – whether it’s a Montenegrin corn crepe, a modern twist on tortellini or a vegan black burger with seaweed and tofu.

On the main stage, there will be a programme of big-name speakers, from French culinary icon Raymond Blanc and food personalities John Torode and Andi Oliver to a host of top chefs who will all be showing off their skills with live cooking demonstrations. An exciting Speakers Corner will host celebrated cookbook authors and food writers such as Kay Plunkett Hogge, Asma Khan, John Gregory Smith, Tommy Barnes and Theo Michaels. In addition, journalist Felicity Cloake will be talking about her book, One More Croissant for the Road, on the main stage.

“When it comes to food, the UK’s outlook has long been international. We excel at putting our spin on the world’s most exciting dishes and at providing the perfect environment for the planet’s best chefs to come and push the boundaries. More than any other event this summer, our festival will truly reflect this, giving visitors a chance to broaden their minds as well as their palates.” – Glen Mutel, editor of National Geographic Traveller Food

“Since launching our quarterly specialist food title last spring, we’ve taken our culinary coverage to a new level. Over the past year, we’ve explored the close relationship between the two subjects and demonstrated just how important food is as a driver of travel. This event will be a chance for us to take our readers — and newcomers to our brand — on a similar journey.” – Pat Riddell, editor of National Geographic Traveller
