Taste of East Yorkshire in New York

A taste of East Yorkshire is being served up in New York this week by Michelin-starred chef James Mackenzie, of the Pipe and Glass at South Dalton. It’s part of a three-day campaign promoting the county in the Big Apple organised by tourism body Welcome to Yorkshire, who are hosting the New York heats of this year’s Leeds International Piano Competition.

James Mackenzie is being flown to New York by Welcome to Yorkshire and will serve up a Yorkshire feast for the British Consulate and top New York travel writers at The Clocktower restaurant on Madison Avenue, this Wednesday (April 11th).

His special menu starts with Slingsby rhubarb gin cocktails followed by seafood caught off the East Yorkshire coast, beef braised in Yorkshire ale and classic Yorkshire puddings. The meal will be rounded off with Yorkshire parkin served with a pot of Yorkshire Tea.

James told Beverley FM: “I’m a huge advocate of Yorkshire produce; we have some of the best quality ingredients in the world and it’s what makes our food stand out from the crowd. I can’t wait to share that with our guests in New York. They’re in for a real treat!”

And Sir Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, told us: “We already welcome hundreds of thousands of Americans to Yorkshire each year and we hope this trip will inspire even more people to come and experience our great county for themselves.”
