Last night I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch party for Make No Bones‘ Blessed Brioche at Church – Temple of Fun. Made in collaboration with Fletchers Bakery, the brioche buns were launched into Tesco stores yesterday – Sheffield readers, you can find these in the Savile Street and Abbeydale Road Tesco’s. I’m so excited about this because it is a gap in the market – the bread rolls you can buy from supermarkets just aren’t the same when you want a homemade burger!
I was welcomed with a glass of Prosecco and a Korean Style Brioche Sandwich, which was miso-glazed aubergine with crispy oyster mushrooms and gochujang ketchup. I’d never usually choose a burger made with veg over a burger with a patty but I was pleasantly surprised (and the mushroom was amazing!).
Anyone who knows me knows that Make No Bones is one of my favourite places to get food – it’s all 100% vegan but doesn’t even say it on the menu – they want to remove the preconceptions about vegan food and be more accessible to everyone. Their saints and sinners menu means you can choose from lighter food such as salads or go for classic vegan ‘junk’ food – think huge burgers, nachos and topped fries. They have also been doing Veganuary specials – I definitely plan to try the Tandoori Chicken Burger!
It was so nice to meet other Sheffield bloggers and put a few faces to names (hello if anyone’s reading this!). It was also really interesting to learn more about the backstory behind Make No Bones and meet the chefs who started it. I was pleased to learn that the entire business is run ethically, from being 100% vegan to paying staff above the living wage. And they have some very exciting things on the horizon; without saying too much, I’m just going to tease that the menu is about to get a hundred times better…
I hope you enjoyed this post and think about trying the Blessed Brioche yourself. Have you ever eaten at Make No Bones before? Let me know in the comments!
