Ok, we are really sorry we neglected this blog over the past few weeks but we have some good excuses! First we had exams (so glad it’s over) and the last week we’ve been on a small roadtrip from lovely Lincoln over York, Northumberland, up to Scotland. There we went from Edinburgh to Oban to Glasgow and then over Kendal back to Lincoln. Naturally one of the main reasons for us doing this was food, as always (but don’t tell my dad, we tricked him into coming along with beautiful nature and stuff…) and of course we want to show you some impressions, so here is day 1 in York (long post alert!).
One of the greatest things about York was that exactly at the weekend we went there happened to be the York Food Festival. It is held only twice a year, so the food gods must have been looking over us (I mean, what are the chances!)
The Festival was basically a market organized by local people,l selling local and exotic food (you can see me here enjoying a sweet potato and goats cheese galette.) and we could taste almost everything for free.
It. Was. Awesome.
That’s us trying some great rapeseed oil infused with garlic and other interesting flavours. To satisfy the big hunger we then had some malaysian dishes (spring rolls for the win!).
After tasting some chutneys, and buying some amazing chorizo we even found one more thing that made York amazing: a book shop sale. Success!
P. S.: My dad took all the photos, I was busy eating.
