Out and about with my cooking skills

The Yorkshire Dale Food Festival

The first ever Yorkshire Dale Food Festival in my home Town Skipton was an amazing experience.

A lot of hard work was put into making the event a success and success it was. The buzz around the event, connecting with so many new and old friends made this event very special.

With Celebrity guests The Hairy Bikers and James Martin demonstrating their cooking skills. I also shared few tips while demonstrating my Kashmiri cooking in Yorkshire along with many local chefs who were equally proud of  their Yorkshire produce and cooking skills. How diverse the skills were too.

I even managed to accept the challenge from my team to find The Hairy Bikers and hand my mix basaar spice with a one to one chat, maybe they will take the offer on travelling to Kashmir with me.

James Martin didn't get away without the spices either. Now lets hope they will be as impressed as Madhur Jafery.

I was so proud of Skipton and the team of people who worked very long hours.A fantastic way to get so much food related talent under one roof and what better way to hold the dales event at the Skipton Auction Mart which was filled with exhibiters both local and further afield. The pens were all decorated to give an amazing experience for all the food lovers who attended.
