The Great Yorkshire Show is the place to be this July, showcasing a whole host of Yorkshire produce and cooking demonstrations.

Foodies will be inspired, excited and tempted by the vast amount of delicious delicacies at the event, both on sale in the Food Hall and being turned into mouth-watering dishes at the Game Cookery Theatre.

There’s usually standing room only at the show’s Game Cookery Theatre, which has become one of the most popular attractions on the 250-acre showground with many of the region’s top chefs queuing up to take to the stage to demonstrate their culinary skills each year.

Based in the Country Pursuits Area, this year’s line-up of chefs is no exception.

TV chef Rosemary Shrager returns to the Great Yorkshire Show again with twice-daily cookery demonstrations. Each morning, she will be showing visitors how to make a delicious venison raised pie, and in the afternoon she will be joined on stage by Simon Whitehead in making rabbit teriyaki and rabbit spring rolls.

“I am so looking forward to coming back to Yorkshire, I just love the Great Yorkshire Show. My mother’s family came from Scarborough, and you can’t keep me away from her home county,” she said.

“The atmosphere at the Great Yorkshire Show is just brilliant, it is so special to me and I feel honoured to be invited to take part each year. I’ll be cooking with rabbit and venison – and then I also get the chance to have a good look around and meet the wonderful producers from across the UK. It really is a wonderful few days for me,” she added.

Other well-known names in the cookery world, including Stephanie Moon from Rudding Park, Harrogate, James Mackenzie from The Pipe and Glass at South Dalton and Andrew Pern from the Star Inn at Harome, will be working with game, inspiring visitors to ‘give-it-a-go’ and try their hand at tempting recipes including peppered venison with pickled bilberries, summer cabbage and smoked parsnips to ravioli of pigeon and potted rabbit.

The packed Food Hall is always a draw for the crowds, with thousands of people jostling to buy the best produce in Yorkshire as well as delicacies from further afield.

It’s here that you can pick up almost anything you fancy, food-wise – how about a jar of Malaysian curry sauce, or some smoked fish? Pickles, chutney, jams, salamis, olive oil, crisps and cakes – just don’t forget your shopping bag and wallet!

The 250-acre showground is also packed with tempting food stalls to ensure that you don’t go hungry during your visit to the event. Every meal is catered for, from bacon sandwiches for breakfast to strawberries and cream for your afternoon tea.
