Indian street food specialist The Cat’s Pyjamas is open in the former Prezzo, which closed recently, and brings vibrant street food from Delhi to S11.

It specialises in curries, tandoori and street snacks as found for sale in food carts across the country.

There will be 50 per cent off food for the first two weeks of opening once it it unveiled.

Just a few minutes down the road, Bloc Pizza was unveiled at the weekend.

It offers salads and sourdough pizzas with inventive toppings - try the maple roasted lamb, feta and pomegranate - as well as beers and drinks.

There are also desserts and smoothies on offer, and a discount offer is in place for August.

The two openings are welcome news after the recent closure of Veeno’s Italian wine bar, and other food spots in recent months.

On Abbeydale Road, vegan favourite The Burger Garden has announced it is to close in September.

Kneading away stress

Making bread and mindfulness are not commonly associated.

But now a new course is aiming to bring the two concepts together.

Stressed out food-lovers can now sign up for the first Mindful Breadmaking course at the School of Artisan Food on the Welbeck estate near Sheffield. It aims to build on the findings of a pilot study into the mental wellbeing benefits of bread making. Participants said baking made them feel happier and more relaxed, creative and less anxious and had given them a sense of purpose.

The course is on September 8.
