Appetite Sheff

Sheffield has a small but substantial place in my heart, I may have only spent a year living there but that year was a good one, most of it was spent dealing with pesky kids but the remainder was spent discovering Sheffield pubs and restaurants/food producers of which the quality is exceptional.

Recently Sheffield Bloggers, Ros of Nibbly Pig and Clare of Feast and Glory got together and planned and organised an event to bring together many of Sheffield producers/restaurants under one roof and show them off.

This was held in the lovely Fusion Organic Cafe last week and I had the good fortune to bag a ticket.

The event cost £5 of which £4 went to two local charities and the theme was a journey through meals of the day.

Here is the list:

Breakfast - this was done by Moss Valley Fine Meats who gave an excellent demonstration on how to make sausages and bacon

Elevenses - elevenses is naturally a brew and cake. This was provided by Teabox and Komal of Fusion Cafe

Lunch - lunch was provided by Just Preserves with a taster tray of their chutneys plus pork pies from John Crawshaws which were porky excellence, there was also chicken and prawns with just preserves chili relish

Afternoon snack - this was provided again by Fusion Cafe with a delicious Lamb pasty

Dinner - Whirlow Farm Trust gave a talk about what they do on their farm and provided a delightful spring dish of boiled egg and spring greens, picked from the farm and swiped from the chickens that morning.

Dessert - being a coffee lover this was a revelation, Our Cow Molly and Tamper Coffee teamed up to give a talk about their respective businesses before providing everybody with an Affogato - fresh dairy ice cream drowned in Espresso - heaven.

oh and not forgetting beery goodness provided by Bradfield Brewery.

The night was rounded off with the results from the quiz throughout the night of which yours truly came third!! and look at all the goodies I got for it. Get in!!

All in all a truly excellent night, now to begin my campaign for a breweries of Sheffield night.
