The Little Book of Sheffield comes at a time when local indies need all the support they can get, and is designed to help people make the most of them. Offering an in-depth guide to the best independent businesses in the Steel City, this book showcases the makers, producers, retailers, cafés, pubs, bars and restaurants that make the city hum.
With a foreword from the iconic Sheffield institution Henderson’s Relish, The Little Book of Sheffield also features the likes of True North Brewery, Locksley Gin, Moss Valley Fine Meats, Freshmans Vintage, Bird’s Yard, The Mowbray, Jameson’s Tearooms and The Famous Sheffield Shop… all telling their stories and celebrating what makes them and the city unique. The book is also proud to be part of Sheffield City Council’s ‘Make Yourself At Home’ campaign.
Find out how small business owners have coped during this challenging year and learn what they love most about the unique community that has always helped independents to thrive in Sheffield. Even if you can’t visit a favourite café or restaurant just yet, this book includes some delicious recipes so you can cook up a storm at home. Start the day with Vegan Mocha Pancakes from Whaletown Coffee, have a go at making homemade tortillas with expert instruction from Kelham Island’s own Mexican fiesta, piña, and treat yourself to patisserie specialist 4eyes’ Hazelnut & Chocolate Babka.
Exposed Magazine editor Joseph Food acknowledges that “it’s been a tough year for many businesses, but we’re hoping for a more positive 2021 where the city can get safely back on its two feet. The people in this city are incredible when it comes to supporting local independents, and we’re going to continue letting them know exactly how they can do so.” Online editor Paul Stimpson adds: “Sheffield is a beacon when it comes to small businesses; it revolves around our independents and they are entrenched in the very soul of the city. We’re hoping this book can give everyone a lift through these turbulent times and remind everyone of how they can support our indies.”
The Little Book of Sheffield is a 176 page paperback and retails at £10. It will be available to purchase from the contributors, in bookshops including Waterstones and online at Amazon and www.mezepublishing.co.uk
