Chefs on Deck in
This week on FDL we travelled to Venice to partake in the S.Pellegrino Cooking Cup - an event that sees ten young chefs from around the world take to the Venice Lagoon in boats for a traditional regatta that combined sailing and cooking.
Chefs this year were presented with a Mystery basket of ingredients which meant that, for the first time in its twelve year history, all the chefs would be cooking with the same ingredients.
Diversity Dished Up
After Venice FDL travelled to England's capital city to cover the Taste of London festival. While there we took a look at London's rich and diverse food scene and just how London's immigration has affected the food on offer in the city.
We spoke with chefs Theo Randall and Jason Atherton and heard how they have both been affected by London's cultural mix of race, tradition and flavor. We heard from young chefs just starting to make their mark on the city and one of the first ever Thai restaurants to open in London.
Iolanda has been cooking with flowers since her restaurant opened three years ago and offers diners a unique experience in which they can sample a whole array of flowers collected by Iolanda on her weekly foraging trips.
