The Food Factory

20 - 29 Sep 2019 Food Factory Tent, St Sampsons Square

Take a hands-on tour exploring the production of a number of well known food items

Your tour will begin in the Food Factory tent on St Sampson’s square where you can get your hands dirty (if you want to) making some of these foods yourselves and at each station you’ll get something to try or takeaway! After this you have the opportunity to head down to York Cocoa Works.

Each tour (including activity at York Cocoa Works) will take around 1.5 to 2 hours to complete.

Due to the technical nature of some of the workshops this activity is most suitable to Adults and Family groups with children over 5, but if you want to bring your little one along there’s still plenty for them to do and they are free with a paying adult!

Although there will be availability on the day, the Food Factory can get very busy at peak times so it’s best to pre-book your slot online.

For groups of 10 and more, please email admin@yorkfoodfestival.com

York Wild Food Walk

Under Skeldergate Bridge, near St Georges Fields Car/Coach Park, YO1, York 10:30 until 12:30

Come on a Wild Harvest foraging walk and learn how to get FREE greens for life!

 

 

In this two hour walk you will discover the benefits of learning about foraging together with the caveats before starting a journey into Wild Food Foraging.  We will then set off on a gentle stroll, all paths are chosen to be buggy and wheelchair friendly, where we stop and meet communities of plants and trees to learn about the harvesting, processing, recipes and health benefits of each.  Participants will be encouraged to nibble a few bits on route under Di’s supervision and sample the wealth of taste on our doorstep from bitter, bland, spicy, lemony and sweet… we look at the concepts of following the plants life cycle, native spices, digging speculatively for roots as expending more energy than you gain, storing vitamin c over winter, not boiling the life out of berries, powdering and juicing wild greens as newer ways of consuming, the amazing story of nettle seeds, how to learn to love the traditional ‘nasties’ ie control the seed spread of invasives such as himalayan balsam by eating its seeds and understanding the hogweed confusion and ways we can actually enjoy eating it.
