IN the heart of Yorkshire’s food capital, Malton, stands Talbot Yard Food Court, which is home to some of the finest food and drink you can find.

Six artisan food producers work in this converted coaching yard selling their local delights.

Here, you will find Food 2 Remember – a butchers and deli run by dad and son duo, Paul and Kieran.

Established 25 years ago, their business is centred around selling locally sourced, free-range, gluten free produce.

On site, there is a range of meat in various cuts, plus other goods like chorizo and fishcakes that are all handmade in their shop.

Dad-of-three, Paul, has a wealth of experience after many years in the trade and this “has always been a family business,” he says.

“My girls [came] in the van with me but in the shop, it’s been father and son.” Paul added.

The shop was formally a van delivery service and Paul would drive around the local area selling their goods.

Eight years ago, Food 2 Remember became the first business to sign up and open in Talbot Yard.

It has since gone from strength to strength - even attracting some star-studded customers.

Oscar-winning actor, Eddie Redmayne, visited the shop with his wife and TV chefs, The Hairy Bikers, featured them and the Yard in a recent BBC show.

Paul said: “We had a great chat with [Eddie Redmayne] and his wife.

“He was a great and normal bloke.

“The Hairy Bikers were a great set of blokes too - they left with our Yorkshire picnic pies and loved them.

“It brought lots more business to us - and Malton too.”

While the pandemic made it difficult for local businesses to trade last year, Food 2 Remember was able to flourish.

Paul said: “We worked all day every day through the pandemic, supplying the public with a local service in the shop and a daily delivery service.

“Plus, we did a free nationwide delivery service too.

“Lots more people now shop locally with us.”

He went on to say that they are “very happy” with the business at the moment and he enjoys working with his son, Kieran.

“It’s great fun working together as we bounce off each other,” he said.

Looking to the future, Paul would likely hand the baton onto the next generation.

“Kieran is looking to take over the business in about 5 years’ time,” he said.

This popular, family-run business looks to be continuing to serve its community Food 2 Remember.
