On Sunday 11 February 2018 we gathered again at Jacob’s Well in York for this month’s social: a bring and share afternoon tea – well cake fest. We sampled sweet and savoury treats from around Yorkshire and Europe. There were Yorkshire Fat Rascals, Yorkshire Bark, cinnamon & ginger fruit loaf, French madeleines, North Italian muffins, German ‘Marmorkuchen’ (marble cake), honey cake, carrot cake, olive buns, salmon & cream cheese sandwiches, cucumber & cashew butter sandwiches, Roquefort cheese, chorizo sausage and a selection of fresh fruit.
We were able to introduce a few new and prospective YTI members to this sweet tradition, which is in its third year running now. It was a very enjoyable afternoon with lots chatting, networking, exchanging and passing on experience as well as cake eating of course. I am are already looking forward to next year’s YTI bake off!
