MASTERCHEF finalist Sara Danesin Medio demonstrated her Italian cooking heritage at the first of this year’s monthly food markets in Malton on Saturday.

Sara, of York, cooked up tasty, elegant Italian dishes in the Milton Rooms, Malton, to crowds of visitors.

Market organiser Tom Naylor-Leyland said: “It was wonderful to see the monthly market so busy and with all that wonderful Yorkshire produce. The White Star Brass Band played beautifully making the atmosphere very special, and Sara’s demos were very well attended and very enjoyable. Roll on April 12 for the next market.”
