The Homegrown Food Festival is organised by the Homegrown Food Group, a volunteer group whose aim is to bring people in and around Northallerton closer to the food that is produced on their doorstep.  It's a great opportunity to celebrate local food and to meet the people who produce it.  Take part in cookery workshops, watch renowned local chefs work their magic, learn how to grow your own vegetables and relax and listen to great live music

Whitby Fish & Ships Festival 18th & 19th May 2019

This one should not be missed !

You can see celebrity chefs perform live cooking demonstrations supported by our local fishing heroes. There will be a wide range of exciting street theatre and musical performances too. Talks, film screenings and exhibitions happening all around town for you to enjoy. You can even complete a fantastic trail of sculptures made by local sculptor Emma Stothard.

Get involved in competitions with the Whitby Rowing Club and the Whitby Angling Club. Children can also compete in a ship or fish building Lego competition. Kids might also want to sign up for an animation workshop run by none other than Wallace and Gromit’s animator, Virpi Kettu.

Learn from our local fishermen how to fillet a fish and dress a crab, enjoy our delicious seafood, treat yourself at the craft stalls and even take a trip on the North Eastern Guardian Fisheries protection vessel

Bridlington Seafood Festival 'A Taste of the Coast' 15th & 16th June 2019

Can't wait for this one! As well as demonstrating I have been asked to run the cookery theatre at this event. I have a stella line up of local chefs which will be announced soon.

The festival will feature local seafood, with an emphasis on locally caught crab and lobster to highlight the fact that, as the largest lobster landing port in Europe, Bridlington is "The Lobster Capital of Europe".

This is such a unique event ! We take our pop up restaurant ' Hook & Catch ' to this event and serve up fresh seafood all weekend. Its an amazing backdrop to cook, serve and promote seafood
