Edible horse takes on the field at the Ebor Festival
3:47pm Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
WHEN it comes to racing colours this is one horse that’s going to beat the field – except on the course itself.
To celebrate one of the biggest meetings of the season – York’s Ebor Festival – specialists have created the Edible Ebor Equine, a life-size horse made entirely out of local produce.
And as next year York racecourse will play a big role in the Tour De France’s Grand Départ, it was accompanied by a racing bike made out of rhubarb.
Film and set designer Bruce Emery combined his talents with those of local food campaigner Jennifer Middleton to create the bizarre spectacle.
Standing nearly six feet high, the sculptures are made from over 100 Yorkshire puddings, four crates of Wakefield rhubarb, 40 crates of South Yorkshire Savoy cabbage, three sacks of Vale of York carrots and a heaped basket of radishes from near Doncaster.
On top of that there are, 20 punnets of Stourton Grange strawberries, four crates of mushrooms from Thirsk and two huge sacks of freshly harvested Wistow wheat and barley.
