also awarded the ti­tle of Seafood Chef of the Year in 2009. He will be do­ing demon­stra­tions in the theatre at the Evron Cen­tre, with ad­mis­sion free of charge.

With the fes­ti­val on Oc­to­ber 13-14 fall­ing at the end of this year’s Na­tional Seafood Week, he will be joined by TailorMade Seafood and Scar­bor­ough chef Dan Har­g­reaves for two days’ worth of demon­stra­tions.

The event, that runs over three week­ends across the year and takes place at the Evron Cen­tre, brings to­gether in­ter­na­tional cuisines and lo­cal dishes, from wa­ter buf­falo burg­ers to clas­sic fish fin­gers with a twist.

“We’ve got foods from across the world com­ing to Fi­ley,” said Chris El­ley, the fes­ti­val’s or­gan­iser.

“It’s not like a nor­mal farmer’s mar­ket, you don’t al­ways know what will be there.

“This year we have ev­ery­thing from Greek food to Cuban, to West In­dian, which fea­tures a fas­ci­nat­ing five-chilli jerk chicken.

“We also have an Asian Gin Bar that will be do­nat­ing prof­its to sav­ing Tar­siers, an en­dan­gered species in Asia and the Phillip­ines.

“There will also be the re­turn of our usual favourites, such as the York­shire Pud­ding Pie man, and the Sand­wich Com­pany, who pro­duce proper ar­ti­san bread.”

Such is the pop­u­lar­ity and growth of the fes­ti­val, ven­dors and vis­i­tors are now hav­ing to look for ac­com­mo­da­tion out­side Fi­ley.

“We have around 15,000 peo­ple visit us. It’s an in­cred­i­ble amount,” Mr El­ley added.

“Peo­ple are now look­ing for ac­com­mo­da­tion out­side of Fi­ley. Scar­bough Hos­pi­tal­ity As­so­ci­a­tion have got in­volved too, as peo­ple just can’t get in to Fi­ley to stay.”

Fi­ley Food and Drink Fes­ti­val gets un­der­way on Sat­ur­day.
