Kitchen Social

Gourmet dinners to showcase the best of Yorkshire's glorious food and more

For a dinner to remember, join Sue Nelson, Yorkshire’s gourmand on the go, for her Kitchen Social gourmet dinners in Yorkshire Food Finder’s stunning and spacious kitchen dining space near York.

Each dinner showcases Yorkshire produce sourced from brilliant artisan food producers through a five-course feast. Selected dates are available for booking on-line or we can create a bespoke lunch or dinner on a date to suit you. We follow the seasons and can tailor the menu taking account of food likes and dislikes, known food allergens with Gluten-free and vegetarian options available. We don’t have a licence, so bring your own bottles of whatever you fancy.

We’ve had brilliant feedback from family friends and colleagues. Others have had just as much fun sharing our table with like-minded foodie strangers. We cater for up to 12 diners and look for a minimum of six guests if you want a private dining experience. Otherwise, come and share the table with fellow food lovers.

We also offer day-time Kitchen Social skills-based events, led by an expert, at which lunch, featuring the produce of the day, is prepared by Sue Nelson. Mostly, these Kitchen Social teach-ins provide an opportunity to get hands-on and always allow you time to browse Sue Nelson’s eclectic collection of more than 1,350 cookery books. These too can be arranged on dates to suit you for group bookings for four to eight places.

Call us on 01904 448439 to discuss how we can create a private dining experience or skills based course for you and your guests.
