Scar­bor­ough’s first-ever food and drink fes­ti­val has been hailed as a de­li­cious suc­cess.

The two-day event on the West Pier car park was at­tended by thou­sands of peo­ple and fea­tured star chefs. James Macken­zie, Ol­lie Moore, Steph Moon and Martin Hyde were just some of those tak­ing part at West Pier. Ann Hardy, prin­ci­pal of the main spon­sor Scar­bor­ough TEC, said: “The fes­ti­val has been a won­der­ful way for us to cel­e­brate lo­cal pro­duce and the chefs and com­pa­nies who make York­shire such a colour­ful and well-re­spected county on the UK’s food map.

“I am in­cred­i­bly proud of our stu­dents, who gave demon­stra­tions in the cook­ery the­atre, and we have re­ceived fan­tas­tic feed­back about them all.

“Their pro­fes­sional at­ti­tude is a tes­ta­ment to the train­ing they have re­ceived and it has been an in­cred­i­bly re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for all of them.”

TEC stu­dents An­thony and Chloe pro­vided a demon­stra­tion, cook­ing monk­fish risotto and goat’s cheese cheese­cake. Ap­pren­tices Billy Free­burn and Kyle Steven­son cooked blue cheese and herb-crusted woof gou­jons with minted pea dip, with stu­dent Kian Gray cook­ing scal­lops with charred cau­li­flower and lemon oil.

For­mer stu­dent An­thony Th­waite, the mas­ter choco­latier who learned his craft while at the for­mer York­shire Coast Col­lege, also gave a demon­stra­tion.

A TEC spokesper­son added: “Thanks to James Macken­zie, our for­mer stu­dent and chief pa­tron of the Miche­lin-starred Pipe & Glass, who gave a demon­stra­tion at the col­lege Open Event and then at the event ... what a trooper #de­li­cious.”

Chef con­sul­tant Steph Moon, com­père of the cook­ery demon­stra­tions in the mar­que, helped to pro­mote the event.

She said: “The event seems a huge suc­cess and I spoke to a great deal of happy vis­i­tors who had en­joyed the demos

and the event very much. The chefs seemed very happy too.”

Among those at­tend­ing was Stu­art’s Foods who said: “Lots of tasty-look­ing food and lots go­ing on.

A spokesper­son for CU Scar­bor­ough said: “A bril­liant week­end at the Food and Drink fes­ti­val. Well done to ev­ery­one in­volved.”

Among the thou­sands of vis­i­tors was Jenny Hart, of Scar­bor­ough, who said on so­cial me­dia: “We went down ... it was great!”

The event was or­gan­ised by The Scar­bor­ough News, York­shire Post and our Events Team, with sup­port from Wel­come to York­shire’s area di­rec­tor Janet Dea­con.
