Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil marks 10 years with prize to win cookery course at York Cookery School

A Thixendale based rapeseed oil producer is celebrating its tenth anniversary by launching the ninth of 10 competitions that are running throughout the year.

Back in 2008, Adam Palmer and wife Jennie launched their cold pressed Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil, since then the company has grown and now has a range of products available and extremely popular. They now produce a range of oils, dressings and mayonnaise based on their award-winning rapeseed oil that is produced exclusively from home. Their Yorkshire Wolds grown rape is pressed, blended, bottled and labelled on the family farm.

To help the artisan oil producer to celebrate the milestone anniversary, the team at York Cookery School has donated a prize of a half day course worth £95!

The competitions have been organised by Marcelle Tisserant, part of Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil’s marketing team, who said that they are delighted to mark their anniversary year with a prize from York Cookery School.

Marcelle says: ”We have had some fantastic prizes donated by great Yorkshire businesses for our anniversary competitions and this generous prize from our friends at York Cookery School is no exception.

“One lucky winner will be able to choose from a host of courses including an introduction to vegan cookery, Thai, Malay & Indonesian cuisine, chocolate making with expert chocolatier, Andrew Thwaite or a Christmas bread making course, to name but a few.”

To enter the competition you have to be following Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil’s on Facebook. Followers can enter the free prize draw from now until midnight on Sunday 11 November. Simply like and share Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil’s competition post on Facebook, and comment who you would practise your newly honed cookery skills on.

York Cookery School is owned and run by husband and wife team, Kate and Fraser Clarkson. The duo decided to build on the success of Kate’s bespoke cake design company, York Cakes, in late 2012. Relishing the opportunity to expand their existing business by bringing a broad range of cooking experiences to a wider audience, they set up the cookery school in November 2012.

Speaking about the competition, Fraser said: “Part of our ethos with York Cookery School is to raise awareness of local food producers and suppliers and this is a great way to highlight the great producers that we have in our region.

“Good luck to everyone, and we look forward to meeting the winner.”

Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil products are available online and from farmers’ markets, farm shops, delis and independent retailers throughout Yorkshire and food festivals and selected retailers nationwide.
