York Food Festival finishes on Sunday. There’s still time to see some good cookery dems, check out the market stalls, the street food, music, talks and workshops. If you’ve never been go now, it’s been on for ten days and it’s the biggest and arguably the best of our regional food festivals. Our pick of the festival:
Drop in to any of the free demos that run all day every hour from 12 noon. Highlights are Masterchef finalist Sara Danesin Medio and Raffi’s Spicebox
Italian Wine Tasting Evening 7pm Guildhall
Karen Hardwick is a delightful, informed and unpretentious wine expert. Her evening of Italian wines and shared platters of Italian meats and cheeses be well worth the ticket price. £30
Wild Food Foraging Walk 10.30am Under Skeldergate Bridge
Wild Harvest are conducting a walk around York to discover all the edible plants growing in the heart of the city. £9.50
Chocolate Fair. All Day. Guildhall
The Guildhall is taken over for the whole weekend in a celebration of chocolate led by York Cocoa House. There will be a chocolate café, workshops and at 2pm a ‘banquet of cake’ by the Clandestine Cake Club. Free entry.
Cochon Aveugle 1pm Demo Area
Cochon Aveugle in one of York’s best restaurants so this demonstration should be well worth going along to. Fee Entry
Finally I want to catch the Food in Art exhibition outside York Art Gallery that runs all week and sample the new Café No 8 outlet there too.
