On the noon show, Heasley cooked shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles, and bacon-wrapped sweet potatoes. She also gave an example of a charcuterie cup that is a featured item at the festival.
There will be four different chefs at the festival from York and Lancaster.
Last year, the event was a brunch, but this year, the idea expanded and grew into a festival.
“It’s a big party,” Heasley said.
