Sheffield hampers by PJ taste get a revamp

Our gift hampers now feature the really rather excellent "Spinning John" a lovely dry artisan cider made at Woodthorpe Hall.  Dick Shepley whose family have lived at the manor house since 1929 hand-makes the cider every October in the houses's historic cider press. Using local apples it truely is an artisan product.


Alongside Dick's cider our hampers feature a variety of other local products as well our own PJ taste produce.  Increasingly we are harvesting soft fruit, apples, herbs and salads from our own 2 acre plot as well as honey from our growing apiary.  Featured in the hamper above is "Crucible Best" from Sheffield Brewery, excellent coffee roasted by Frazer, Sheffield Honey, Henderson's Relish and our chill chocolate (made with chillies grown by John - the "J" in PJ taste.  

This bespoke hamper is ideally for gifts, birthdays or any occasion where you simply want to celebrate local produce.  Priced at just 35 pounds we can post at additional cost or deliver potentially for free in Sheffield.  For more hamper options please see this page.

Postscript:  the Shepley family suffered a series of tragic losses during the war - there is an interesting account of this history here.

The people behind PJ Taste are champions of seasonally inspired local food. John and Peter opened their coffee shop on West Street in 2006 where a smoked tofu salad with gluten-free noodles became the best seller. This creativity has characterised their food from the start, and the wide range of options, from office buffets and weddings to spits roasts and wood-fired pizza, really sets the venture apart. Today PJ Taste employs a team of dedicated caterers to deliver delicious and innovative food for business events and family celebrations all over Sheffield and Derbyshire.
