Pepperonata with Chicken wrapped in Proscuitto and York

Recently, I spent a few days in York, which is a lovely city in Yorkshire in the UK.
It is the first time in a very very long time where I felt we spent too short of a time there and would like to go back and do some of the other sights we didn’t do.
I went with my girlfriend and drove there on a Wednesday. We arrived around 4 so we just spent the rest of the afternoon / early evening walking around, absorbing the place and the atmosphere and had a few cocktails. We went to an awesome restaurant called Nineteen (restaurant recommendation in a future post) that night and had a few more cocktails before calling it a night.
On the Thursday, the first thing we visited was the minster. We climbed the tower and had a free guided tour. What facts did I learn about the cathedral?

1. One of the windows was a advertisement for a MPs shop
2. Stone carvers could carve random faces and things rather than biblical.
3. Some nutter burnt the choir room, which revealed a secret crypt beneath and now police have to guard the cathedral 24/7 to stop future nutters.

I probably should have more details such as the name of the nutter.

After the cathedral, we had lunch at Cote
My girlfriend had pork belly
I had a seafood pasta dish

Then we walked around the city walls (lovely walk), went back and chilled.

The evening restaurant was called 31 Castlegate (restaurant recommendation coming up in the future)
Friday, we went home!

If you know York, you can tell there is lots more for us to do there.

Great summery dish below! We made the pepperonata last summer but only got around to taking a photo and putting it on FADHoppers this summer.
Good things come to those who wait!
