Valentine’s Day (February 2018)

They say the way to the heart is through the stomach so make sure you treat your loved one this Valentine’s Day.

Start things off with a delicious cooked breakfast – we’re talking the works, with sausages, bacon & of course, black pudding. If they are working, be sure to pop a pork pie in their packed lunch. If you’ve got the day together, why not go for a walk around the city of York and call into Appleton’s on Lendal for a little of what you fancy? Pick up some quality meat from one of our Yorkshire shops and cook dinner together. How about a couple of pieces of gammon? Pork chops? Or some diced pork in a sweet and sour or something similar?

Have a great Valentine’s Day pie lovers!
