Parliament Street, and across York
Till Sun Sept 27
Heading over to York Food Festival this weekend?
There are so many things to try, with stalls selling everything from freshly baked bread to high class liqueurs.
YorkMix went out to track down some of the more unusual flavours of this year’s fest.
Bracken Hill Fine Foods – Jams and Preserves
Ever creating and inventing there are plenty of unusual and creative flavours to taste from Bracken Hill personal highlights include Berry Christmas Jam and Mango and Lime Curd.
Raisthorpe Manor – Liqueurs and alcohols
Regulars continue to come back to try Raisthorpe Manor’s sloe gins and award winning Damson port made with fruit grown on the estate itself.
Rhucello – Liqueur
If you are looking for a new way to taste one of North Yorkshire’s most famous flavours then why not try rhubarb as a sweet tasting liqueur. Stall holder Simon Phillips told us Rhucello was “inspired by a trip to Amsterdam” but that made the best use of what Yorkshire’s famous Rhubarb Triangle has had to offer.
Brown and Blond – Brownies
York Food and Drink Festival regulars Brown and Blond impress with a range of exciting and extraordinary flavours such as Eton Mess, pecan and stall best seller Salted Caramel.
Johnsons Toffees – Fudge
If you want rhubarb but with the alcohol why not try it in fudge? Johnson’s say it’s the good Yorkshire soil that inspires this unusual combination.
The Festival has proven itself to be suitable ending to the summer period in the city as crowds have flocked to savour the best that the area has to offer even during the traditionally quieter mid week period.
The festival continues until Sunday.
