York Food Festival 2014.

The York Food Festival is one of the highlights of the foodie year in York. This year’s festival is no exception with over 400,000 visitors expected to visit during the ten days of the festival.

This year’s theme is Food and Science which will not doubt stray into the world of molecular gastronomy and take a look at a few of the recent issues surround food traceability and sustainability.

This year’s workshops will include ‘The Science of Sugar Boiling’ and ‘Making Chocolate from Cocoa Beans’ hosted by York Cocoa House and a demo on ‘The Chemistry of Drinks’ from a professor at York University.

Chef’s from around Yorkshire will also be taking part in cooking demonstrations including Michelin winners, Great British Menu contestants and local favourites.

The Taste Trail will take you round some of York’s best eateries and delicatessens for a little something from each – a great way to discover York’s hidden gems.

For drink lovers there’s a lot going on this year too. Tutored beer, wine and Champagne tastings, the infamous Ale Trail plus York CAMRA Beer and Cider festival.

This is only scraping the surface of the events at this year’s festival so if you want to see more head on over to the York Food and Drink Festival website.
