TREAT OF THE WEEK
This weekend we travelled to Whitefield to visit a place called Slattery’s, a “three-storey emporium of treats!" Downstairs there’s a shop selling a wide range of treats and gifts; everything from cream cakes, tarts and pastries to beautifully hand crafted Belgium chocolates, perfect for those with a sweet tooth! There’s also award winning jams, chutneys, curds and a range of specially selected wines, beers and liqueurs. Slattery’s is also famous for it’s bespoke celebration and wedding cakes. Downstairs there’s the Celebration and Wedding Cake Showroom, with over 40 gorgeous wedding cakes on display. They have a viewing window into the production area so you can actually watch the cake decorators hard at work and see the cakes being made. On the first floor, there’s the Masons Dining Room, serving a delicious range of meals and snacks throughout the day. Everything from breakfasts and lunches to afternoon teas and cakes to satisfy your taste buds! And for those who fancy a go themselves, there’s the Slattery School of Excellence, which offers chocolate and culinary training courses to the public. The courses cover chocolate making skills, sugar crafts and baking courses suitable for people of all ages and abilities. Situated on Bury New Road, just off the M60 at J17, Slattery’s is well worth a visit! Check out their website at: www.slattery.co.uk. And of course, after looking round, we had to have a little treat for ourselves!!
