Smiths of Sheffield 15 year anniversary

Sheffield chef Richard Smith is taking a trip down memory lane next month with a nostalgic evening to celebrate fifteen years in Crosspool.

Before its current incarnation as Artisan, the Sandygate Road restaurant was previously Thyme and prior to that it originally opened as Smiths of Sheffield – or Smiths as it was known.

On Monday 13 December at Artisan, Richard will be cooking some of the favourite dishes from Smiths days, including Thai tiger prawn cake, honey and rosemary glased shank of lamb and trio of creme brulee (view the menu here – jpg, 429KB).
