Sharrow Vale Road is renowned as a hub of thriving, independent trade. It also happens to be one of the best streets for buying food in Sheffield, and Stretti is no exception. Bringing the true taste of the Mediterranean to Yorkshire, Stretti’s owner Elena specialises in fresh, artisan pasta made with the highest quality, natural ingredients:
Stretti also stocks shelves of delicious pasta sauces and jars of antipasti to accompany your dish, so you can buy all the components of a hearty, traditional, Italian meal under one roof. What’s more, you can relax with an authentic Italian coffee and canoli as you chat about recipe suggestions (Elena is always happy to help with culinary queries). In addition, there are usually vegetarian, egg-free and gluten-free options available in store for those with special dietary requirements.
As well as running the shop, Elena hosts popular, informal pasta-making workshops throughout the year, where groups of 4-8 have a go at making their own pasta from scratch (under her expert guidance) and finish by dining on the delectable results. The classes are fully-booked until the New Year, but vouchers are available for anyone wishing to give the gift of pasta this Christmas. And while we’re on the topic of festivity, we suggest treating the foodie in your life to a pasta machine this year and take advantage of this limited offer on the Now Then Discounts App: get 10% all pasta machines throughout November and December.
Stretti are currently offering some seasonal products including traditional Italian Panettone and Panforte, Torrone, Gianduiotti chocolates, biscuit selection boxes, various stocking fillers and hampers to fit all budgets. Why not give your Christmas an Italian twist this year and support a small, independent trader in the process? Tis the season to shop locally!
