The Yorkshire Catering Company operates across West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire with our deli, The Black Olive being based in Horbury, a town in Wakefield. Our local village setting in West Yorkshire gives us a huge advantage when it comes to catering for events across the region. We have been known to cross into Lancashire to caterer for weddings, parties and private dining affairs!
We’re part of the rhubarb triangle!
One of the most known things about Wakefield is the Rhubarb triangle. As you’ve guessed it’s a triangle of rhubarb… OK, it’s a triangle of three locations in West Yorkshire that bring together Wakefield, Morley and Rothwell in the growing of ‘early forced rhubarb.’ The triangle used to be bigger and would cover, Leeds, Bradford and Wakefield but has significantly shrunk in recent times.
Ironically, Rhubarb was a name we had in mind for our catering company but we thought that the good people of Wakefield wouldn’t be impressed with our phone answering technique of “Rhubarb of Wakefield!”
