Thanks for visiting York on a Fork! I launched this site in 2014 as a response to continued, strong suggestions that I should start a food blog. During my decade or so working in financial services I realised I was spending an increasing amount of time either booking restaurants for team events or answering emails from colleagues with queries about where to eat out in York.
Since founding the site, I’ve collaborated with some fantastic people and built strong relationships with many restaurateurs in York. Some highlights from the last couple of years include: York on a Fork being shortlisted for the Online Media category of the O2 Media awards; being quoted by The Guardian talking about independent restaurants in York; and contributing to the official York Tourist Guide under the York on a Fork banner. I’ve also assisted on various food awards judging panels while building strong, trusted relationships with local food businesses who often approach me for advice. In 2018, I worked with the York Food & Drink Festival to curate and co-brand their Taste Trail and Gin, Fizz & Ale Trail.
I’m proud to have built a reputation as the person to speak to about food in York, making recommendations on York’s best restaurants to local and national media while remaining trusted to keep secrets about the next big thing by the city’s restaurateurs.
The future looks tasty!
