Cookery Workshops: York Food Festival - Cook in
As part of its biggest-ever programme of hands-on cookery, the York Food Festival aims to run cookery workshops across the ten day Festival with an ambitious target of teaching over 1,000 novices how to cook.

The York festival of food and drink 19th- 28th September 2008

Each session in the Guildhall will allow up to 72 people at a time to take part. There will also be workshops in venues around the city including children’s workshops in the York Designer Outlet and the National Railway Museum.

“This is the first time we have attempted to involve so many people in hands-on cooking. These are cookery sessions of a totally different order and a scale that is unique to the York Festival. I don’t think you will find this level of involvement at any other food festival.” said Michael Hjort, Festival Director.

Public sessions for both adults, children and the homeless will run at the weekends while midweek will be dedicated to a wide ranging schools’ programme covering both primary, secondary schools and higher education.

Sessions will be hosted on the Guildhall stage by teachers, chefs, even the army and will include York-born chef Peter Sidwell, chef/patron of the Good Taste cafe in Keswick, and Masterchef finalist and children’s cookery expert Fi Bird whose company Stirrin’ Stuff runs children’s workshops across the UK.

By the end of the Festival it is anticipated that over 1100 children and adults will have learned some practical cooking skills.

Tickets £5.00 and £7.50
