She's gone to great lengths to find excellent local suppliers and the sausage and black pudding from a butcher across the road were meaty and tasty. The bread is made in a village a few miles away by an artisan baker using stoneground, unbleached flour. Great to have toast made of hand cut, flavoursome bread rather than the usual sliced, bland stuff.
Later we visited the Malton Food Lovers Festival a few miles away where we browsed (and grazed) many amazing local food makers, growers and producers. Far too many cake stalls for my liking (most of them of the heavily-frosted variety) but loads of good chutneys, oils, vinegars, sloe gins and other alcoholic delights, cheeses, chocs, and even a beer festival in the town hall. Definitely worth a look if you are in the area, an excellent showcase for Yorkshire produce!
