York Minster will host the “Gin & Rum Festival” on Saturday 18th in York Minster featuring over 120 top-class gins and rums to try. The Theatre Royal will present Yotam Ottolenghi on Tuesday 21st. In Parliament Street there will be demonstrations from 2020 Masterchef Professionals finalist Jono Hawthorne, Great British Menu’s Steph Moon and York’s own Neil Bentinck from Skosh.

The Taste Trail is ticketed tour of York where participants visit different businesses and receive a sample of food or drink from each one. The hubs will feature samples from businesses who can’t take in too many visitors due to size and/or COVID restrictions.

The free hands-on cookery workshops, the Festival’s ‘Food Factory’ are located at the Hubs and are suitable for all ages. This year’s workshops include chocolate work, curing & smoking your own foods, butter & cheese making, and pasta making.
