Your favourite restaurant in the Sheffield area?
Napoleon’s in Ecclesall Road – I’ve never had a bad meal there. The extensive menu, presentation and service get top marks and I love their cocktails.
I like nice family-friendly pubs. We go to The Elmwood at Beighton for their carvery and the kids can play.
What’s the worst meal you’ve ever had?
A cold, tasteless meal at an Italian restaurant. When we mentioned it, the chef told us we were wrong !
And the best?
If not at Napoleon’s, then Cubana’s tasty tapas.
Your favourite TV cook?
The Hairy Bikers: simple and varied recipes and they have a great sense of humour. I have all their books and never a bad recipe yet.
What do you think of Sheffield as a place to eat out?
There are many great places to eat all over the city, offering a huge variety of different tastes and cultures.
