Treasure Hunt York

After twenty years in this wonderful city I think I know York very well. I’ve never lived more than 20 minutes’ walk from the centre of the city and have spent a great many days happily mooching my way around the city, taking in its history, sights and businesses. On occasion I’ve joined more formal…

Family Fork in The Dales

I would love to be bold enough and organised enough to be intentionally on holiday just a few weeks after travel restrictions were lifted. The truth is a bit more prosaic than that though. Over Easter, I was due to be working on an event in the centre of York that potentially merited a few…

Lockdown & Leftover soup

It may come as a surprise to hear that I don’t eat out for every single meal, or well it might have come as a surprise this time last week but perhaps less so now. I love cooking and am generally a little too quick to take over in the kitchen, but my approach to…

The York Van Gogh Experience

We’re well served for museums and the arts in York, with plenty of headliners able to garner national recognition alongside smaller galleries that offer plenty of opportunity for local artists to find a platform. Alongside the more permanent venues and frequent pop ups that we enjoy, there’s a new attraction to check out, The York…

Welcome to Skelf Island!

Now that Baby Fork is fully ambulant and happily charging around, we’re starting to embark upon the journey of discovery that will pair us with her chosen play areas (that fall within our regular budget). We’ve already an established local routine thanks to our proximity to Rowntree Park, but we’re always on the lookout for…

Family Fork Amsterdam

Regardless of the presence of Baby Fork (that should probably become Toddler Fork at some point) we were determined to enjoy as much of Amsterdam as possible. While tasting menus in Michelin starred restaurants might be off the cards at the moment, at least while we’re abroad without a baby sitter, there’s still plenty to…

First travels with Baby Fork

Turns out, travelling with a baby can be quite stressful. Who knew, eh? We’re both relatively experienced travellers and have honed our ability to pack light over many trips, something we knew would take a dent with the addition of a baby but the question remained, how prepared were we for our first travels with Baby Fork? As I’ve posted about…

Family Fork visit Almaz York

It can be hard to see the wood for the trees when I’m trying to choose which restaurant to head to next, such is the continuing proliferation of openings in York. Time is even more precious these days and now that Baby Fork is becoming tiringly ambulatory, some restaurants just aren’t appropriate for her to…
