Fi­ley Food Fes­ti­val

Seafood lovers will be in for a treat at Fi­ley Food and Drink Fes­ti­val, with cook­ing demon­stra­tions from chef Rob Green, this week­end.

The Whitby-based chef is a UK Chef Am­bas­sador for Seafish, the au­thor­ity on seafood, and 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 Satur­day and Sun­day 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.”
