Why rhubarb? We’re glad you asked. Wakefield is part of the Rhubarb Triangle, an area of West Yorkshire that has grown the best quality forced rhubarb for hundreds of years. It’s so good Yorkshire Forced Rhubarb has received protected name status alongside other famous delicacies such as Parma Ham and Champagne.
Rhubarb becomes stalk of the town every February as the city comes alive with a vibrant celebration of the pink vegetable. The Wakefield Festival of Food, Drink & Rhubarb returns from 17 – 19 February 2017 where the city centre streets will be bursting with colourful market stalls selling speciality food and drink with an abundance of tasty samples to try.
We're excited to announce that 'the nation's favourite French chef' Jean-Cristophe Novelli will be joining us at the festival this year as well as Rachel Green - star of ITV Yorkshire’s Flying Cook. Step inside the cosy demonstration marquee and watch as our superb talented chefs create delectable rhubarb dishes, you’ll be amazed at how much can be done with a few sticks of rhubarb. Give your taste buds a treat as you head outside and sample delicious street food and pop into one of the local cafes and restaurants offering special rhubarb themed dishes.
