As part of National Park Week 2015 there will be food event ‘Dales on a Plate’ being held in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The event will take place in Kilnsey Park in Wharfedale. It is being held by Kilnsey Park Estate in association with the Yorkshire Dales Park Authority.

‘Dales on a Plate’ will bring together a range of local food producers and stalls. There will be food and drink tastings on offer at these stalls.

Including this there will be a lunchtime BBQ, fun fishing, a smoke house tour and fish filleting demonstrations.

Visitors will also be able to listen to bee keeping talks and see the Kilnsey hives.

Kilnsey Park owner Jamie Roberts said:

“It’s a really great chance for people to meet local producers, learn about their businesses and taste their produce – everything from Yorkshire chorizo to Viking Skyr yoghurt and our own award-winning Kilnsey trout.”

“We have got all sorts of activities lined up for the whole family, from a fun introduction to beekeeping to a chance to catch your own fish, learn how to fillet it and then cook it on the BBQ.”

As the event is being held as part of the National Parks Week 2015 it will be embracing the ongoing theme of “Landscapes of Plenty” which aims to highlight how productive our landscapes are.

Jamie thinks: ““It’s important that people understand and appreciate just how valuable our national parks are – not just as productive landscapes, but also as a place we can all escape to and as a safe haven for endangered animals and plantlife.”

Peter Charlesworth, the chairman of the National Park Authority, said:

“The UK’s national parks really are the jewels in this country’s crown and they are free and open to everyone.

 “They offer so many different things to so many people – from the peace and solitude of the beautiful landscapes to the bustling communities that produce fantastic food and drink and give visitors such a warm welcome.

 “National Parks Week is yet another chance for us to showcase all the special qualities of these protected areas and to say to people ‘come and see for yourselves’.”

“We have got all sorts of activities lined up for the whole family, from a fun introduction to beekeeping to a chance to catch your own fish, learn how to fillet it and then cook it on the BBQ.”

“It’s important that people understand and appreciate just how valuable our national parks are – not just as productive landscapes, but also as a place we can all escape to and as a safe haven for endangered animals and plantlife.”

There will be plenty of food, walks, and talks happening for National Park and you can find the rest of these details at the Yorkshire Dales National Park website.
