he North Yorkshire market town of Malton is soon to welcome its 8th annual Malton Food Lover’s Festival

Attracting thousands of visitors to Malton over the weekend, the Festival is well regarded as one of the most prestigious food festivals in the UK.

Dubbed ‘Yorkshire’s Food Capital’ by esteemed chef Antonio Carluccio, Malton’s annual Food Lovers Festival has grown significantly from just 1,500 visitors in its first year to being one of the biggest food festival in the north, attracting some of the finest foodie talent in the country.

Among the 2016 festival line-up is celebrity chef Rosemary Shrager, returning to Malton for a 3rd year to host an exclusive cookery tutorial, a live demonstration and a Q&A session.

With over a decade on our TV screens, Rosemary endeared herself to the nation when she took part in I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here where she proved she could cook just about anything, anywhere.  Her new show The Chopping Block begins on ITV1 on 11 April.

Rosemary said; “What I love about Malton is the atmosphere, it’s passion for food and the incredible location. I jumped at the opportunity to come back this year and really can’t wait!”

Festival Organiser, Tom Naylor-Leyland, said; “We look forward to welcoming thousands of visitor’s back to Malton, Yorkshire’s Food Capital, for our 8th Food Lover’s Festival. With more stalls, chefs and food than ever before, I hope you will enjoy the weekend more than ever and visit Malton time and time again. With British food gaining respect and popularity around the world, it is thrilling to be part of the Yorkshire food revival here in Malton”.
