What is YorKitchen?

It is also where we have cooking demonstration and kids' activities. The Production Kitchen is available to rent by those starting or expanding a culinary business. It is also available for private parties, preparing for private events and dinners. Our special events like 21South and the Chef Challenges are also held in this area.
