Would You Like to Be a Judge at London Pizza Festival?
What Is It?
Everybody loves pizza, and with the London Pizza Festival you can get a bigger slice of the action.
The festival has been running since 2015, bringing some of the capital’s best pizza chefs to Borough Market to show off their skills. There can only be one winner of the coveted pizza crown, however – that’s where the public can get involved.
Cast Your Vote
A panel of 800 pizza lovers will have the chance to vote for their choice using a specially designed sticker chart to be filled in after tasting each pizza. To get involved, would-be judges need to purchase a £28 ticket, which will cover the cost of entry, a small slice of pizza from each competition participant and a drink.
The festival promises to be a very tasty event, featuring contributions from participants such as Radio Alice, Sud Italia and last year’s triumphant winner, Made of Dough. For an authentic slice of Italian cooking, look out for L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele; it recently opened a branch of its Naples-based restaurant in Stoke Newington and will be serving up pizza as it should be experienced.
London Pizza Festival is the brainchild of Daniel Young, an author and founder of Young & Foodish, a website exclusively dedicated to tackling the important issue of where and what to eat. He has hand-picked the festival’s line-up to give festival-goers the best possible range of pizzas to choose from.
Pizza-making is a growing industry, with many of us tempted to have a go ourselves. It’s possible to order pizza ovens from places such as https://www.247cateringsupplies.co.uk/catering-equipment/heavy-cooking-equipment/pizza-ovens should you decide to try your hand at making some fine Italian cuisine in your own home.
Aside from pizza, the festival has a few other big draws. For those who have worked up a thirst, there will be bottles of sparkling Ferrarelle mineral water on offer, as well as a range of ales from Skinner’s Brewery. For those with more of a sweet tooth, there will be the chance to indulge in treats from Casa Cannoli and Sorbitium Ices on the day.
Tasting sessions will be divided up into four segments. The first will begin at midday and the last at 4.30, allowing a time slot to suit most schedules. Happy tasting!
