Mr Pickles Yorkshire Food Emporium

This Saturday we took a trip down to Sheffield’s vintage quarter at Abbeydale Road and  visited Mr Pickles Yorkshire Food Emporium. I’d been eager to visit this place ever since I had read about it and wasn’t disappointed with the offerings. Everything on sale is from local producers around Yorkshire, there was so much on offer I was spoilt for choice on what to spend my pennies on. There was a variety of delights from ice cream to gin (sheffield brewed gin) to bread to chutneys to butter to meat to cheese to vegetables just to name a few.

I could of literally spent my whole months wages in there but chose these, we had also been to the hop hideout and treated ourselves to a few international beers and some proper beer glasses.

My absolute weakness is cheese so I chose some Coverdale, which I have been in love with since I had some at the Wendsledale cheese factory. I also chose some Olde York a creamy ewes milk cheese and a Ribblesdale Goats Parmesan which I can’t wait to try. To go with it I selected some chutneys & pickles and some lovely looking cheese biscuits. I also picked up some Pontact which I had never seen before, it’s a fruity spicy sauce to enhance the flavour of sauces and stews. And I just couldn’t resist the pork pie with Chorizo and fire roasted red pepper, mmm tasty. I’m such a sucker for pork pies.

Foodie stop: Manchester markets

Last weekend we were up in the North West, And while in Manchester I luckily had enough to have time to have a quick look around the food markets, something which I love to do. Both central, One was in Piccadilly Gardens and the other in St Anne’s Square offering a large array of food on offer from sweets and everyone’s favourite cupcakes, cold alcoholic beverages (damn being the driver) and hog roasts. I also spotted a stall using lucky boat noodles which was a bit of a blast from the last for me as I spent my placement year working at Westmill foods. Walking round it all looked amazing and I was gutted that I’d already eaten and didn’t have room to devour the delights in front of me. On route We also, discovered Mr Simms Olde Sweet shop where we were like, well, kids in a sweet shop.

Here’s a few pictures for you to enjoy.
