A gallery of grub from York Food And Drink Festival

The pies are as high as an elephant's eye, there's loads of cheese to choose from and enough cakes for every York cakehole. Drool over our gallery.

It's tough work… volunteers try out the food at the demonstration kitchen
The Sloe Gin was selling fast. Folk were pickled in the beer tent, and bearded at the pickle stall.

Food producers of every type were jamming, frying, pouring and pork pie-ing. Yorkshire sausage rolls were on sale next to Italian ham. And the hot cakes were selling like… well, like billy-o.

It was the opening day of the York Food And Drink Festival, and here’s our gallery of the day.
