The Eat Sheffield Awards

October 13, 2010

Some of you may be aware that Monday night was the eat Sheffield awards!
An event where Sheffield eating establishments were all up for winning awards as voted for by the public.
I attended the evening with a few workmates and really enjoyed it. the reception was at the stunning winter gardens where we mingled, ate Yorkshire crisps and drank wine.

I bumped into my old college teacher Mick Burke – a executive master chef of great Britain this guy is amazing and taught me many skills including making the most beautiful hand made chocolate!

After an hour or so of mingling we were ushered to the the adjoining hotel where we sat at our tables and awaited our three course meal.

The starter was a sweet potato and coconut soup by glorious – Marco Pierre Whites range of fresh soups, it was nice but would have been better if it was homemade. The accompanying bread however was delightful.

The main was braised pork belly with vegetables and fondant potato. It was delicious and tender, the fat melt in the mouth. Very impressive considering the amount of people here eating tonight.

The dessert was our cow molly ice cream with glorified sprinkles including jelly beans, popping candy, honeycomb and chocolate amongst many others. The ice cream was lovely, very creamy and ‘real’ tasting unlike some of the synthetic vanilla luminous white stuff that seems to be trying to pass for ice cream these days.

The awards themselves were very entertaining to watch and although we didn’t win any this year I felt that most of the winners were deserving.
I had a fun time, the food was much better than last years pie and peas!
I’ll look forward to going again next year.
