Fine Seafood - Bivalves & Banter
Wild Eye & Yorkshire Seafood Kitchen
I’m thrilled to announce I’m partnering with the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust to deliver a series of catering events as part of the Scarborough Town Deal funded Wild Eye programme until March 2025
Working under my new business name the ‘Yorkshire Seafood Kitchen’ I’ll be delivering various pop up events with free seafood tasters, seafood cookery demonstrations and specialist events focusing on sustainability, seasonality, provenance and the promotion of local food suppliers.
I’ll be visiting local food festivals throughout the Yorkshire region with our new mobile food truck focusing on cookery demonstrations and promoting regional seafood produce.
And excitingly I’ll be developing a new mobile cookery school, which will be visiting Scarborough and outlying areas, delivering a series of free events, focused on teaching simple seafood skills and dishes.
The ambitious Wild Eye programme will help develop a greater understanding of the incredible wildlife found along the North Yorkshire Coast through nature experiences, cultural events, activities and artworks. Over 2022 to 2025 it will raise awareness about the local marine environment, support artisan businesses, engage local communities and showcase the strong links with the Towns cultural heritage.
Events will be advertised on our and partners' social media channels, and for some limited number events, places can be booked on Yorkshire Wildlife Trust's website at www.ywt.org.uk/events.
Wild Eye is delivered in partnership with Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, a regional environmental charity, Invisible Dust, a UK-based art-science organisation and North Yorkshire Council. The Wild Eye project was allocated £1.4m under the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities’ Towns Fund, which is administered by North Yorkshire Council, to deliver long‐term sustainable economic growth for Scarborough’s nature-culture tourism market and support reconnection with the environment.”
