Missies Sheffield Food Adventures
08 May 2011
Personally, food has always played a big part in my life. It’s simple – I love food and it makes me happy!
My food-related rambling, obsessively taking pictures of what I’ve eaten and blogging about all things food is not only a hobby, but is integrated in my daily routines. I know, you should see the facial expressions on my friends when I’m shouting, “Wait, wait!!” just as they’re about to delve into our sharing platter to find me whipping out my camera. Tut, I hear? Maybe, but they’ve grown used to it now.
I used to feel that Sheffield’s dining scene was unfairly hidden away (an underbelly if you will) – but my ‘nomming’ road trips across the City has lead me to discover an ever increasing supply of locally-sourced treats, delicious eating venues, food producers and farmers – some of whom I would also call ‘friend’.
Those sausage rolls from Gregg’s simply won’t cut it – because I’ve been constantly impressed by the growing deluge of homemade, Sheffield-sourced deli’s available in the city centre. Lunch times have become a nightmare, what with so many eateries offering their delightful and colourful meal boxes – as a city, we’re spoilt for choice.
The other day I had a ‘real’ muffin – what’s so real about it you ask? did it talk to me? Sadly no. But it was freshly made using fine, locally-produced ingredients and tasted a hell of a lot better than any mass-produced soggy bun. Plus it looked amazing. Bliss! I had just eaten a piece of Sheffield and eating a slice of Sheffield made me feel just that little bit more special, too…
I’m having a very tasty time on my Food Adventures – gallivanting up and down Sheffield on my smiley fork. It’s proving a delicious experience, just take a look at my photos (seen above) and you can see that I’m eating my way through Sheffield! If you happen to see Missie in your local eating joint, remember to tweet me over a photo (I’m always keen to find out where Missie hangs out), and add with your tweet the conversation hash tag #missiesfoodadventures so that we can all follow her food/road trips.
