Yorkshire Rose

The white rose of Yorkshire dates back to the 14th Century and is today used to symbolize the county of Yorkshire. The inspiration comes from #LOCALLOVE, being born, living and working in Yorkshire, so the symbol of the rose was a perfect fit.

Not only using local producers but the local traditions and symbols are important to my in the #LOCALLOVE topic. As a child my favorite dessert was a black forest gateaux. I have used this as inspiration for my sharing concept with some twists.
