Burgers, bangers and the Tour de Yorkshire

KEEN cyclist Kabel Taylor may not be competing in the Tour de Yorkshire but he’ll certainly be making sure that the crowd who attend won’t be doing it on an empty stomach.

Kabel and his brother George will be supplying more than 1,000 burgers and another 1,000 bangers for Stage One of the major sporting event on Friday which will see the cyclists tackling a 115-mile route from Beverley to Settle.

George, who was named Young Butcher of the Year in 2014/15, said they will be getting up at 1am to make everything fresh for Ingleton Cricket Club which is having a stall in Settle to raise cash for its junior teams.

“We started supplying burgers and sausages to the cricket club so when they approached us to help out with this fundraiser we were happy to help. It’s an early start for us but we’re quite used to it when we get big orders,” said George.

Kabel, 26, who regularly goes on long bike rides in Gisburn and the Lakes, is in charge of making the burgers at Country Harvest and his younger brother George will recreate his award-winning thick pork sausages.

Dave Mcgonnigal, captain of Ingleton Cricket Club, said if they sell out of all the burgers and sausages they will raise about £1,500. “That’s almost 25% of what we need to survive a year; it’s a one-off opportunity.”
