TASTE OF YORKSHIRE
The people of Yorkshire are immensely proud of their county, and especially their food and drink. There is certainly a lot more on offer than Yorkshire puddings! Yorkshire has a diverse landscape featuring cosmopolitan cities, pretty market towns, rugged coastline and the famous Moors and Dales, something which is reflected in the range of food and drink on offer.
Famous for its sweet dishes such as curd tart or parkin (a type of ginger cake), it’s no surprise that Yorkshire is where famous confectioners like Rowntree’s, Terry’s and Bassett’s originated.
Today, some of Britain’s best meat, cheese, craft beer and baked goods producers can be found in Yorkshire and there is no better place to sample them than in one of the many outstanding pubs, restaurants and tea rooms, or direct from the producer at a farmer’s market or farm shop. Locals will also tell you that Whitby is the fish and chip capital of the world!
