Edible Equine

If you missed last week’s Ebor meeting at York Racecourse, you probably missed this rather amazing ‘edible equine’.

Set designer, Caitlin Jones, sculptor, Emma Stothard, and local food campaigner, Jennifer Middleton created this life sized racehorse made entirely from locally sourced food

Standing nearly six feet high  (16 hands), they used Yorkshire Puddings, baked in the racecourse kitchens, Wakefield  rhubarb, South Yorkshire Savoy cabbage, Vale of York carrots, radishes from Doncaster, Stourton Grange strawberries,  mushrooms from Thirsk and two big sacks of Wistow wheat and barley.

I think that counts as five a day, at least.
