Are you a cook?

Unfortunately not, although I have vowed to improve my culinary skills this year!

Any cooking tips?

The unwritten rule: Thin or lumpy gravy is never okay!

What’s your favourite dish?

One of my favourite comfort dishes is chicken pie and mash (with Hendo’s of course!)

And a drink to go with it?

A pot of Yorkshire Gold

Your favourite restaurant in the Sheffield area?

Silversmiths in the city centre – I recommend their bangers and mash. The staff are all really friendly and accommodating too.

And pub?

I love the Picture House on Abbeydale Road, they serve great cocktails and pizzas, and you can play Jenga and table tennis.  

 What’s the worst meal you’ve ever had? 

A sloppy shepherd’s pie on a school retreat in Year 8.

 And the best? 

An amazing creamy spinach and ricotta pasta in Amsterdam – I just wish I could remember the name of the restaurant!

 Your favourite TV cook? 

The Hairy Bikers! My dad always has their programme on and I love their down-to-earth nature and feel-good dishes.

 What do you think of Sheffield as a place to eat out? 

Wonderful. There’s so much variety, loads of independent eateries, and always more opening – such as Cutlery Works in Kelham Island which serves delicious street food.
