This is one of two bakeries in the picturesque town of Bakewell, a 20 minute bus or taxi ride from Sheffield City Centre. Both shops claim to have the only original recipe for Bakewell pudding, a local speciality which is said to have been the result of a mistake made by a cook at the White Horse Inn in 1860, but which became an instant hit locally. The recipe was a closely guarded secret but both bakeries claim to have the only set of original instructions. This shop, an 18th century building which retains many original features and also has a restaurant upstairs, was originally a chandler's; a chandler's wife was said to have been the first to obtain the true recipe and sell puddings. Most people say the puddings taste the same whichever shop you get them from, but why not try for yourself? Puddings are bought by people from all over the world and can even be posted to you at home.
Visit this justly celebrated farm shop for some of the freshest and tastiest locally-produced foods available. Selling the very best of foods produced on the Chatsworth estate, the shop is housed in a former horse-stud building. There's a butchery where you can purchase the Duke of Devonshire's favorite sausages, home cooked bacon or quality hung meat. A dairy sells fresh farm cream and soft cheese made in the estate's dairy, and the delicatessen stocks cooked meats and pates made by the farm's own chef as well as locally-produced vegetables. The bakery sells freshly baked bread from the farm shop kitchen, and the Duchess of Devonshire's own range of preserves and sauces are stocked, along with homemade jams and local honeys. The shop has recently opened an outlet in London.
Ridgeway Craft Centre is located in a small Sheffield suburb, once known for its sickle and scythe industry. A converted 17th century farmhouse, which still has stone mullions, oak beams and original roof timbers, now houses craft workshops. The center is run by the District Council and is made up of workshops, where you can watch craftspeople creating and selling a wide range of quality goods and souvenirs. It's a great place to buy gifts, and there is also a country kitchen, which offers meals and light refreshments. A number of walks around the industrial village of Ridgeway can also be followed.
