Yves brought the flavours of France to York this week when he demonstrated his culinary skills at the annual York Food and Drink Festival.
With a taste trail, food producers market and cookery classes as well as chef demonstrations, the festival which is held in St Sampson’s Square attracts large numbers of gourmands from all around the UK.
Combining the traditional gourmet flavours of France with seasonal fresh local produce, Yves’ used Yorkshire apples, honey and beer to create his dish – roasted apples and honey wrapped in a crepe made with Minster Ale, produced by York Brewery and served with Calvados. After enthusiastic sampling by the assembled crowd, all agreed it was a tasty cross-cultural triumph!
The festival is now over for another year but runs each September and is well worth a visit.
