Yorkshire Dales Food project

Projects > Yorkshire Dales Food project

Sustainable Development Fund (SDF)

This pilot project gave everyone a chance to taste Yorkshire Dales food and gain the confidence and skills to use local food in their lives today. A series of practical cookery demonstrations, tasting sessions and have-a-go workshops helped share traditional skills and modern tips in a fun environment.

The events explored food traditions and family favourites and helped people to re-discover forgotten skills of growing, gathering, storing and cooking local food. Participants found out about ingredients from the wider world and their influence on Dales food culture and were inspired by seasonal food recipes. 

SDF funded a project officer for two days a week and equipment and materials to run the pilot project.
