It’s one of our favourite days of the year – Yorkshire Day!
Of course we love the day which celebrates all things Yorkshire, being a Yorkshire brand through and through, as well as having
owners born and bred.
We are very lucky to have some of the best food and drink in the world produced right on our very doorstep. When we say we could fill our shelves 10 times over with more wonderful
produce, we’re not exaggerating! It’s one of the reasons we like to keep
refreshing our stock with new ideas (but don’t worry, we try not to get rid of
any old favourites either!). Yorkshire food
isn’t all about the Yorkshire Pudding (although don’t get us wrong – we love
With at least 70 per cent of what we sell coming from Yorkshire, you don’t need to look too far to find some
goodies to enjoy this August 1st.
You can start with a morning cuppa from Yorkshire Tea (of course!) or if you’re a coffee drinker, Taylors of Harrogate offer a perfect brew.
Grab some Yockenthwaite Real Nutty Granola, made up in the Dales, or some locally reared bacon or free range eggs to enjoy with fresh bread made by the Derventio Bakery in Malton. We even have locally made butter and of course Hunters own range of delicious thick cut marmalades and fruit preserves.
If you’re feeling peckish by lunchtime why not grab one of our famous deep-filled sandwiches? Our roast beef and horseradish is the best seller, and we roast our own beef and ham on the premises. The smell is divine! Grab a packet of Yorkshire Crisps and one of our delicious, fruity Chubby Hunters and you’re set!
If you’ve room for a little afternoon snack, why not try one of the Harrogate Cake Co’s delicious bakes? The Pink Himalayan Salted Caramel is to die for, or you can’t beat tea loaf. Or we’ve plenty of proper Yorkshire Parkin to tuck in to!
If there’s time for a pre-dinner tincture, how about a G&T with one of the locally produced Masons or SLOEmotion flavoured gins? Or maybe a beer from the Yorkshire Heart brewery or Helmsley Brewing Co? Or if wine is more your thing, we have a great range from the award-winning Ryedale Vineyards. A glass of Yorkshire Lass anyone?
Dinner time comes and the world’s your oyster! Or maybe
Yorkshire’s your shellfish is more accurate for this
particular post. We’ve meats and sauces and oils and accompaniments from around
the region to allow you to cook up a storm – whether it’s a light and healthy
salad, or a curry with a kick.
For dessert, there’s always the deliciously creamy Brymor ice cream, or why not stock up on some cheese, biscuits and chutneys? Our range of
Yorkshire cheeses includes the very best of Wensleydale
and Swaledale and all kinds of other dales.
Evening comes and surely there’s space for a little treat – why not try our own range of delicious chocolates – a Milk Chocolate Maple and Pecan Leaf perhaps or a Dark Chocolate Violet Cream?
And if you can manage all that….don’t worry, we’ve barely scratched the surface - there’s plenty more to tuck into tomorrow!
