From: Dale Edwards, Newborough Street, Bootham, York.
BEFORE Christmas, I paid a visit to the festive German market in Leeds.
I purchased something to eat from a stall and asked the assistant where in Germany she was from.
I then discovered that she was from Romania, as was her colleague.
At another stall I purchased a mulled wine and I was served by a woman from Hungary.
As I stood drinking I saw a white van pull up alongside the market.
The van was advertising a Leeds-based frozen food company and two men started delivering to stalls.
My observations suggest that there wasn’t anything authentically German about the market.
In praise of hospital food
From: Michael Shepherd, Chapman Gate, Pocklington, East Yorkshire.
YOU asked for our views on hospital food (Yorkshire Post, January 11).
Having just spent a few days in York Hospital, I must tell you that the food in there was good. No complaints at all.
From: Joan Charlesworth, Upperthong Lane, Holmfirth.
I AM sitting reading your weekend article entitled ‘Small wonder patients are turned off by hospital food’ (Yorkshire Post, January 11).
At this moment I am sitting up in a hospital bed eating breakfast. I can tell you it is very good indeed first hand.
I had an operation just two hours since.
