Manchester cocktail bar voted one of the best in the entire world
Another win for Manchester…
A cocktail bar in Manchester has been voted as one of the best in the entire world.
Each year, a panel of expert bartenders, drinks writers, cocktail specialists and educators select the very best cocktail bars the world has to offer for the World’s Best 50 Bars awards.
And for 2022, a cocktail bar situated right here in Manchester made the list for the top 100 establishments across the globe.
Joining bars from far-flung locations like Krakow, New York, Singapore, Cape Town and Sydney is Schofield’s, a new bar on the scene situated in Sunlight House down Little Quay Street.
Schofield’s – owned and operated by Bury-born brothers Dan and Joe Schofield – has proved to be a huge hit among city centre punters thanks to its team of knowledgable cocktail connoisseurs, who put intricate mixes on both classics and their own unique signature drinks.
Drink highlights include the Guinness Punch – Bacardi Ocho, Guinness, condensed milk, nutmeg and vanilla – and the Lone Tree – Chase GB Gin, Schofield’s very own Dry Vermouth and orange bitters.
Reacting to the news on Instagram, the Schofield brothers said: “We are a little lost for words upon hearing the news that we ranked as the 59th Best Bar in the World (The World’s 50 Best Bars List 2022) making us the only bar in England to place in the list outside of London since 2008.
“We’ve said it before and we’ll say it many more times but this is a true testament to the hard work put in by the team on a daily basis. We are proud to call you colleagues and proud to work alongside you.
“After opening during the Global pandemic, we never imagined we would receive this sort of recognition and it drives us to be better and do better for you, our guest.
“We are proud to play a small part in the thriving food and drink community in Manchester. We look forward to seeing you at the bar soon!”
Schofields is open from 12pm – 1.30am Wednesday to Sunday, and accepts both walk-ins and bookings.
Manchester Christmas Market’s legendary Yorkshire pudding wraps are BACK this year
The wraps can be filled with a selection of roasted meats, vegetables, potatoes and gravy
The Manchester Christmas Markets’s world-famous Yorkshire pudding wraps will officially be making a comeback for 2022.
Last week, Manchester City Council announced that the annual markets would be returning on November 10th, where they will operate across the city centre until December 22nd.
And now, the undisputed highlight of the markets has also confirmed its return; the famous Yorkshire pudding wrap.
Porky Pig, the vendor behind the delicious invention, took to social media to announce it would once again be serving up its hearty wraps ‘bigger than ever’ throughout the duration of the markets.
They wrote: “Manchester Christmas Markets 2022 we are coming for you bigger than ever this year. We are excited to get back to what we do best.”
The Yorkshire pudding wraps – which catapult to viral fame every year – can be filled with a selection of pork, gammon, beef, chicken and lamb, along with a selection of roasted vegetables, potatoes, stuffing and lashings of gravy.
This is all wrapped up in a giant Yorkshire pudding for guests to enjoy there and then.
And this year, market-goers will also be able to feast upon battered pigs in blankets, pigs in blanket barms, and even a giant pig in blanket wrapped up in a Yorkshire pudding.
The Manchester Christmas Markets will this year be returning to the ‘Winter Gardens’ at Piccadilly Gardens.
It is likely that stalls will also operate on Market Street, St Ann’s Square, King Street, Exchange Square and Cathedral Gardens, though this is yet to be confirmed by the council.
Manchester’s Christmas Market spokesperson, Councillor Pat Karney, said: “With Christmas Day a mere three months away, that can only mean one thing – Manchester Christmas Markets Day is even sooner!
“In fact, there’s only seven weeks left to go until you can grab a gluhwein and buddy up with a bratwurst whilst checking out the fantastic Christmas gifts and goodies on the best Christmas Market in the land. Mark it on your calendars – 10 November – they’re back!”
COMING SOON: A Japanese soufflé pancake house is opening in Manchester
The best pancakes on the internet are coming to Manchester…
A cafe dedicated to Japanese soufflé pancakes has its sights set upon Manchester this winter.
The traditional – and wobbly – dessert was first made in Osaka to be served exclusively at weddings – in more recent times, however, the pancakes have boomed in popularity thanks to social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram.
And one of the places to specialise in this peculiar dessert is Fuwa Fuwa – Japanese for ‘Fluffy Fluffy’ – the largest soufflé pancake and dessert cafe in the whole of North America.
And next month, it’s heading to Manchester.
Each of Fuwa Fuwa’s fluffy pancakes are made with egg whites whipped into soft peaks, which is essential to their airy quality. They are then baked slowly at a low temperature.
The finished result is a delicate balance between a soufflé and a traditional pancake, with a soft, bouncy, and light texture.
Fuwa Fuwa is expected to open its new cafe – its first in the north of England – in the Manchester New Square development just off of Canal Street.
There, guests can expect a varied choice of pancakes and toppings, from Tiramisu Pancakes to Crème Brûlée, all served alongside espresso drinks, iced and hot teas, frappes and smoothies.
Other pancake flavours on the Fuwa Fuwa menu include Oreo, Biscoff, Nutella, mango and strawberry.
Fuwa Fuwa is set to open in Manchester at some point in October with operating times between 12pm-10pm on weekdays and 10am-10pm on weekends.
