Leeds Indie Food Festival Is Set to Return; Celebrating the Best of Yorkshire Food


Padiham, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/22/2015 -- It has recently been announced that Leeds Indie Food Festival is set to return in 2016, following a highly popular event in 2015. The festival took place on a city-wide scale and originally started out by championing Leeds' independent food industry. The coming year is set to incorporate more businesses than ever and showcase to the public a range of edible delicacies from around Yorkshire.

Yorkshire certainly has a strong relationship with fine food, and the festival aims to draw attention to this. Cities in the county such as Leeds and Sheffield have seen their own 'food scenes' emerge and develop considerably over the years; with tourists even willing to travel in order to try particular produce.

Yorkshire is classically known for its puddings, but other traditional food choices include curd tart, parkin and increasingly so, locally-reared meat. Keen to comment on this was The Yorkshire Pig and a spokesperson had this to say:

"The news that the Leeds Indie Food Festival is coming back in 2016 is highly positive. It illustrates an important movement in Yorkshire food at the moment – an emphasis on locally-produced, top quality food and drink. And this isn't just limited to festivals; here at The Yorkshire Pig we provide locally-reared pork cooked to perfection, truly capturing the tastes of this fabulous county. After all, it's a place known for its agriculture and opportunity, which makes meat even better. We are proud to be part of a place where the culinary and cultural worlds meet for all to enjoy and wish all the best to those planning to take part in the festival next year."
