Founded in the US by the late great Josh Ozersky (formerly Restaurant Editor of Esquire Magazine and James Beard Award winning author) and brought to the UK by chef Richard H Turner and London butchers, Turner & George, Meatopia is a festival of high quality, ethically sourced meat, all cooked over ethically sourced wood and charcoal by some of the world’s leading top chefs. A weekend-long love affair of meat, drink, fire and music, Meatopia UK has become a legendary event for food lovers.
Curated by Richard H Turner, chefs from around the world will gather at Tobacco Dock and cook with their favourite meats, exploring whole carcasses and creating signature dishes. There will be more than 20 chef teams per day with a variety of food backgrounds from America, Asia and across Europe.
Year 3 will see even more live entertainment and music, and with the help of our 2015 partners, more great beers, wines and spirits – and of course, more meat and fire!
