It’s time for a change. I’ve been producing this site and the huge majority of its content for approaching five years now, with help from some amazing people along the way. I’ve met some incredible people and had some wonderful experiences but life moves on and it’s time for a bit of a shift in focus for York on a Fork.
I thought I had a good handle on the food scene in York when I started this enterprise. It turns out I did have a fair idea and now, half a decade on I can put my hand on my heart and say I believe know it better than anyone. I produce the food pages for the York tourist guide, have contributed to various other websites, been quoted in the national press, been shortlisted for and judged awards and been lucky enough to attend hundreds of fantastic meals and events. The network I’ve built (and occasional discretion I’ve shown) along the way puts me very close to all the gossip and local news and in a great position to continue sharing what’s going on sharing the fantastic things that continue to happen in our city.
I’ve certainly not lost interest in York’s fantastic food scene and I’ve no intention of slowing down my coverage of it, but life moves on and York on a Fork needs to broaden its focus to continue to justify the amount of time it takes and reflect my changed family situation since the arrival of Baby Fork. The last 10 months since her arrival have offered the opportunity to broaden the content on here and that’s something I’m keen to capitalise on. To that end, you’ll now see the lifestyle section of this site renamed “Family Fork” and this is where you’ll find content that features family life and days out.
Another feature of my life over the last few years has been occasional motoring writing. I’ve been passionate about cars for longer than my memory runs so being able to indulge that passion and write about them has been a great pleasure. I’ve got permission to share the work I’ve done here so I’m looking forward to sharing that with a wider audience under the “A Fork in the Road” banner.
There’ll still be plenty of the same food content for you to enjoy…I’ve no intention of losing my reputation as the person to speak to about the food scene in beautiful York. There’ll also be plenty of stuff to enjoy aside from that though and more reasons to call by for a nosey. I hope you enjoy following what Family Fork gets up to in 2019 and beyond as much as I do.
