2023 Highlights


On the 15 & 16 July, thousands of food lovers descended on the Business Design Centre in London, where they were treated to a spectacular celebration of the culinary world.

On the festival floor, exhibitors from across the globe offered samples and expertise, while in the Marketplace, ticketholders were able to buy gifts, source rare ingredients for their store cupboards and enjoy some of London’s best street food all in one place.

This year’s Main Stage welcomed some of the biggest names in food, including Asma Khan, Anna Haugh, Thomasina Miers, Jeremy Pang and John Torode MBE. Meanwhile, over in Speakers’ Corner, cookbook authors such as Andi Oliver, Coinneach MacLeod, Karan Gokani and Mandy Yin sat down to discuss their latest releases.  

The National Geographic Traveller Food Festival will return in 2024 with a brand-new lineup of chefs, authors, experts and enthusiasts, offering food-lovers yet another chance to taste the world. Dates to be announced.
