Meet many of the chefs and producers featured on our gourmet food trails and who feature on our Supper Club dining menus - the Yorkshire food folk who devote their lives to bringing the best the county has to offer, whether they're rearing it, growing it, fishing for it, making it, brewing it, bottling it, smoking it or curing it. You name it, it's being done right here on our Yorkshire doorstep.

More than ever before there is great emphasis on using local produce, and nowhere is that more true than in Yorkshire. Recognising the folks who give their lives to producing and cooking these ingredients is what Yorkshire Food Finder is all about. 

*Please note that this is a list of the chefs and producers currently on our set tours and dinners, we have relationships with many other vendors and can send you an exhaustive list if you are looking for something in particular. 


Sarah Puckett

Sarah makes incredible pickles and chutneys in her state-of-the-art Pickle Palace near York. Her inspiration comes from old family recipes and her ship's captain father who brought home ingredients from his journeys sailing the seven seas.
