It was Antonio Carluccio who first called Malton "Yorkshire's Food Capital"

The rest as they say is history!

Malton is..

one of Britain’s most renowned foodie destinations with traditional food shops, artisan producers, restaurants, a cookery school, food tours, markets and festivals. A small town with a big reputation for food.

As well as an array of traditional butchers and bakers, the pretty market town is home to new and exciting Yorkshire food brands such as Groovy Moo Gelato, Florian Poirot, Roost Coffee, and Brass Castle Brewery.


In fact it was Antonio Carluccio who first called Malton 'Yorkshire's Food Capital' and since then we haven't looked back!
