FOODIES have a new breakfast joint to try out after an Evesham-born and bred chef opened up his first eatery.

Yolked, a recently opened breakfast takeaway in Badsey, pays homage to Evesham in more ways than one.

Henry Boers, owner, said he is proud of his roots and has not only sourced all his ingredients from local providers but named each dish after a place in The Vale.

"I have had six weeks of planning the names and thought to name the dishes from our little villages.

"I have had old ladies come in laughing their socks off.

"I am proud of where I am from."

The most popular dish since he opened the takeaway two weeks ago has been The Evesham Slapper, with The Badsey Boy also being a solid favourite.

Other named dishes include The Hot Vale, The Littleton and The Willersey Wombat.

Mr Boers said he had always dreamed of opening his first eatery and started his culinary experience working for Westlands in Offenham when he was 15.

The now 35-year-old said: "I have been giving myself a pat on the back and have filled that void.

"I am incredibly chuffed, and my friends and family are too, that I decided to do it.

"Supporting local business is very big for me and my clientele.

"I am a little business, and people really like that, and I am supporting Worcestershire as a county."

All the produce he buys comes from under 17 miles from his store.

His eggs are from Billy's in Stow, the bread is from Peter Cooks in Worcester, the meat is from Badsey Butchers, and the other produce is from the Westlands in Offenham.

The venue does a twist on McDonald Mc Muffins, and its burgers are named after places in The Vale.

Yolked is a shared kitchen that turns into a pizzeria, which is run by a different business, in the evening.
