A few Yorkshire bloggers and I visited Malton recently to check out the artisan food producers, the brewery and have a go at cooking some tasty dishes from around Europe…with a Yorkshire twist.
Rather than my usual blog post format, I thought I’d do a vlog for this one. Partly to do with me forgetting to put my memory card into my camera…and partly because I’m trying to do more video! It was lots of fun, my partner for the crime was Dei and we didn’t burn Malton Cookery School down…so that’s good!
We cooked dishes from all the places that InnTravel (specialists in ‘Slow Travel’, based in Malton) go to with their holidays. I’ve been leafing through their brochure and I really like the look of some of the trips. They are self-guided and basically take the hassle out of organising it all – these are the types of holidays I love…lots of culture, food and sight seeing. They seem to be very flexible too, so you can change around what you like.
The dishes might have been international, but like I said, they all had a Yorkshire twist on them…using ingredients from our lovely county and lots from Malton.
Malton is aiming to be ‘Yorkshire’s Food Capital‘ and I have to say that they are doing a great job. The Talbot Yard Food Court was a lovely place…a coffee roasters, bakery, butchers, fresh pasta maker and ice-cream parlour all in one place. Foodie heaven! Special shout outs to Passione Della Pasta for their absolutely delightful Tirimisu (I had one taste and promptly bought two pots) and Groovy Moo for their amazing ice-cream.
The train to Malton from Leeds only took around an hour (going through York), so it’s definitely worth checking out…wander over for the day, visit the brewery, eat some fantastic food and maybe take a cookery class at Malton Cookery School. We all had great fun and left very full and happy.
Hope you like the vlog above…you get to laugh along with Dei and I!
