Weekend - Wakefield Festival of Food, Drink and Rhubarb

How was your weekend? I live fairly close to the Bermuda Rhubarb triangle. Yes really! Apparently rhubarb is a native of Siberia but just loves to grow in our Yorkshire winter climate of cold and wet. Well at least something enjoys it  :)

West Yorkshire once produced 90% of the world's forced rhubarb and it's only available between January and March.

Grown in forcing sheds, rhubarb is traditionally harvested by candlelight when the stalks reach approx. 61cm.

The German salami man. It is funny though - when I'm in Germany we only eat Hungarian salami :)
