Chinese Food Festival Returns for 2019
London’s Chinese Food Festival returns to celebrate its 5th anniversary! To mark this occasion this year the popular festival will be themed to pay respect to its London home.
The festival will be embracing London’s love of asian food by showcasing not just the best in the Capital, but also with non- asian vendors to join the celebration by creating unique items just for the festival such as Crosstown Doughnuts.
In continuation of this year’s theme the festival will also embrace London’s love of asian food by hosting workshops at The Lee Kum Kee Cookery School. Throughout the weekend classes will focus on teaching participants how to create the authentic taste of regional Chinese dishes using ingredients that are available in the UK.
Current vendors are all London-based showcasing the Capital’s favourite asian dishes; Pleasant Lady, Bun House, Chilli Legends, Crosstown Doughnuts, Master Wei, Yun, Buy & Bite, Ricebrothers, Ugly Dumplings, Miss Teppanyaki, Wheelcake Island, Liu Xiaomian, Kung Fu Foods, Lee Kum Kee, Wong’s Chinese Food, Three Uncles, DeZhuang, JiangXiaoBai, Oriental Drinks, Hungry Emperor, Handian and Jiaba.
From Friday August 30th to Sunday September 1st set by the banks of the Thames and in the shadow of Tower Bridge these vendors will come together to showcase the Londoners’ love for the incredible range of Asian food we are lucky to have in the city.
Chinese culture in the UK will be represented with the UK Han Culture Association (UKHCA), a registered charity aimed at preserving and reviving this significant cultural symbol of Chinese civilisation. Visitors will have opportunity to watch traditional performances, try on authentic hanfu clothing and sign up for the complimentary Han Beauty Experience taking place in the Han Boudoir of talented Chinese make-up and hair professionals.
The Jiangxiaobai Baijiu Bar will be serving drinks until late adding to this spectacular celebration and unique opportunity for visitors to experience the diversity of Chinese food.
