Chefs Ron and Dan lead seafood specials
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.”
