One of the best things about living in York is, of course, the food.
Yorkshire has so much to boast about when it comes to tasty treats – from local produce to international food and drink. And this year, the famous (free!) York Food Festival is turning up the heat.
The Festival is run by an independent organisation, and intends on making a long-term difference to York. School events are held mid-week with local children taking part in cookery lessons, and a Junior Chefs Competition will also be underway.
Michael Hjort, a leading local chef and Festival director, says: “There’s a massive opportunity to buy regional or other gourmet foods. We’re very proud of this – many festivals are dominated by the beer tents and street food. The Festival is not just in York but is about York.”
But, if you just want to nibble on something sweet, you can have your cake and eat it. The Festival runs on the same week as MacMillan’s Coffee Morning – so 25% of the sales from the coffee and cake stand will go to a great cause.
