York Food and Drink Festival 2013

Lucky me. I arrive back to the lovely York to this year’s Food Festival. Spanning over two weekends (and the weekdays in between), the York Food Festival is a great chance to taste some local delights and meet the bakers/brewers/culinary artisans to invent them.


Being a humongous foodie, this was a bit of a treat. We wandered about, nibbling samples of everything from sweet chocolate, honeycomb and fudge to lovely cheese and chutneys – my idea of heaven. My first purchase (of many) was some ginger shortbread, which my housemates and I demolished as soon as we got home.

York already has a plethora of great things to do. It has beautiful historic buildings, spooky ghost tours and great bars and pubs. However, little temporary markets with local produce really bring a city alive.

We then decided to visit the beer tent and taste some locally brewed ales, and with each at £2 a half it was easy to try a great selection. We then wandered to the tent opposite, for some champagne and prosecco (well it’d be rude not to, right?)


Overall, a lovely welcome back. Thanks York.
