Easter at The Feversham Arms
Easter is one of our favourite times of the year here at The Feversham Arms. Not only are we spoilt with bank holidays and plenty of delicious Easter chocolate, we also love to spend the long weekend among family and friends.
Spring is a time of great beauty across the county, but in Yorkshire this time of year is extra special. Surrounded by the natural beauty of new life and new beginnings, our thoughts turn to our families, and of course, our wonderful guests.
Our head chef, Norman Mackenzie, gets very excited about this time of year: “Spring, and particularly Easter, is one of my favourite times of the year. The countryside flourishes again which provides the perfect opportunity for foraging.”
Those of you who have read this blog before will know Norman is a keen supporter of local produce; he enjoys wandering around the beautiful Yorkshire countryside here in Helmsley, and will always pick up a few treats for our kitchens along the way.
We like to deliver the most fresh and local ingredients to every table and Norman goes above and beyond to ensure each dish is lovingly prepared.
Foraging is a great activity to do on your own or with friends and family. It’s a fantastic way to get the little ones out and about enjoying the fresh air and they’ll be sure to get a good night’s sleep after a day of exploring.
Chef’s Top Tip: Some mushrooms are poisonous, so make sure you do your research before you go and do not let the little ones forage unsupervised.
Now that the sunshine is beaming most days, we highly recommend a stroll around our beautiful town and countryside to see what you can find!
Why not make your day of foraging all the more fun by incorporating a mini Easter Egg hunt? These are easy to set up at home or in the great outdoors and provide some quality family time over the Easter weekend.
Norman’s already been out and about gathering fresh produce for our delicious menu. Will you be joining us for an Easter Sunday lunch this year?
We look forward to seeing you soon.
