THAT’S MOOR LIKE IT! WHITBY’S AWARD WINNING CHIPPIES GO FORAGING FOR THEIR FISH SUPPER
Staff at Whitby’s Quayside fish and chip restaurant are celebrating Yorkshire Day by getting berry merry amongst the blooming North York Moors heather this week – tucking into Yorkshire’s finest fish and chips and picking bilberries for their Yorkshire Day Special menu.
The Moors’ heather, which is in full bloom in the first two weeks of August, is pitted with sweet, wild bilberries (a smaller, wild type of blueberry) that are perfect for pies, and Quayside is adding a homemade version with apples to its menu for two weeks to mark Yorkshire Day on August 1.
The Yorkshire Day Special includes fish and chips with a choice of cod or haddock, mushy peas and a family recipe tartare sauce, a pot of Yorkshire Tea, a selection of freshly baked bread from Botham’s of Whitby, and, of course, delicious homemade bilberry and apple pie.
“It’s a great time to jump in your car or take a trek over to Whitby for the day, stopping by the North York Moors on the way, admiring the heather and getting purple fingered picking some bilberries!” says Stuart Fusco, Quayside director and head chef. “And we’re inviting you to come and taste-test the results in our bilberry and apple pie, made with shortcrust pastry – and plenty of cream – along with a nice brew. Catch it while you can!”
Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “This is a perfect way of fusing together Yorkshire’s amazing scenery and fine food. It’s also great to see Quayside being so creative to celebrate Yorkshire Day.”
