My cookery books: Be-Ro Flour Home Recipes

My Mum had a copy which I used growing up and she bought me my own copy sometime in the last 10years. Since I have used the recipe Yorkshire puddings  pancakes and crumble.


My Cookery books: The really useful student cookbook

My brother gave me this book for the Christmas before I went to university. From it I have cooked risotto, fried toasties (basically you butter outside of sandwich, cheese in middle and fry in frying pan) and sweetcorn fritters. Also when first cooking for self it was a reference before smart phones to get tips.

My cookery books: The Henderson Relish Cookbook

This was a birthday present in 2016. Henderson is a type of relish made in Sheffield. It is an interesting book to look through as it has history of Henderson’s including pictures, Henderson artworks and all the recipes, have been contributed by people with a connection with Sheffield therefore there is information about a range of people.

I add Henderson’s to stir fry’s and various sauces, but I have never specifically cooked anything from it. It has a wide range of recipes due to the variety. Of contributors.

Cafe Nero Salted Caramel

Cafe Nero are offering four Christmas flavours for Hot Chocolates or coffees: Clementine, Gingerbread hazelnut and salted Carmel.

I tried the salted Carmel hot chocolate. It looks pretty with the swirl of caramel in.

Does not taste salty. But the  caramel is a good strong flavour; more flavour than Starbucks fudge. A good sweet hot chocolate.

I went to the cafe on the Moor, Sheffield, after dark; the cafe and surrounded area were lit up. This is not just for Christmas! The lights on the cafe change colour hence, too pictures.

Starbucks Hot Chocolate  fudge flavoured and Chocolate Christmas loaf

The gold on top of the hot chocolate was pretty; but did not add to the taste. Hot chocolate was average, with the fudge flavouring adding subtle flavouring; would not have said particularly tasted of fudge. It could have had a much more intense fudge flavour.

I liked the chips of chocolate in the loaf otherwise average cake.

Seven Hills Bakery Hot Chocolate and Fudge

Biting into chocolate end, had that great sensation of chocolate snapping like on a magnum. A taste of chocolate then the beautiful intense fudge taste.

A smooth hot chocolate with the butter taste balanced by sweetness.

I tried a tester piece of frangipani and that was also very tasty.

The cafe is one side of the shop, it felt slightly cool but to be fair it was November and I had come into shelter from the rain as had open toe shoes on after a pedicure.A fairly basic feel rather than cosy. Concreate wall painted grey. White Walls, one dark blue and the rest of Shop behind cafe. One white wall had blackboard menus; all you can eat toast for the price of a sandwich – worth rembering!

It is on Sharrow Vale Road in Sheffield. There was a selection of gluten free products.
