DEMOS from chefs, chocolate-tasting and tea dances will be on offer alongside festive food in Malton next week.

The Malton Food Lovers Market, which is intended to be a monthly fixture from next March, will take on a Yuletide theme on Saturday, December 1, between 9am and 4pm at the Milton Rooms.

Rob Porter, chef proprietor of Scarborough’s Green Room Restaurant, will be on stage to show his skills at 11am, while Nigel Brown, who owns a cookery academy in Barton-upon-Humber, will also make a return to the market.

Anybody interested in volunteering at future CIC events should email Fiona Foley Croft at
