Great Yorkshire Show 2012 – Welcome to Yorkshire Lunch

The Great Yorkshire Show 2012 was the abbreviated version, for one day only, after the downpours of Tuesday afternoon the organisers decided to cancel the rest of the show, no parking and severely restricted access….

So I will miss my Demo in the Game Cookery Theatre with  Paul Mackie, Head Chef of Rudding Park scheduled for Thursday and William will miss the rest of the Sheep Clipping competition.  Apparently the remaining 500 sheep not yet clipped in the competition including our 90 hogs will still be clipped by a crack local team on Wednesday morning, wondered if they will be timing and who will be unofficial local champion?

We thoroughly enjoyed the day on the Tuesday including a splendid lunch hosted by Gary Verity and Welcome to Yorkshire with superb local produce, expertly prepared and championed by Aaron Craig, Head Chef at Yorebridge House and team.

This meal was outstanding! prepared in a field, in a tent, in the rain, the wines matched perfectly and everything really excellent quality, served just how it should be, honoured to have consumed and shared it with you.

The Welcome to Yorkshire stand was bustling with all things wonderful to eat, drink, stay and do in our County, another superb effort and I was gutted that the 154th Great Yorkshire Show 2012 was only for one day….
