Free pizza for key workers, Rudy's sarnies, cannoli art - the most shareable social content in MCR
We're post-roadmap-announcement and pre-budget-announcement but Spring is in the air and the overall feeling is positivity and hope for the foodie future of Manchester.
Scroll on for our new weekly round-up of funny, filthy, full-fat social media content from Manchester's food and drink scene.
While most people were elated to finally have a date in mind to work towards reopening, we always enjoy a piss-take meme like this from Stockport's Good Rebel. You've gotta laugh, hey?
Things cannoli get better
It's no secret we love a good pun at Confidentials, and we also love the gorgeous photography from Manchester Pasta Co. These cannoli look almost too good to eat - but we wouldn't let that stop us for long.
Another cake that looks like a still life painting, this beauty from Long Bois Bakehouse forms a part of the Mother's Day collection from Eat Well MCR.
Whey-st not want not
If your sweet tooth is more of the salted caramel persuasion, how about this slab of whey caramel brownies with smoked Maldon salt. It's made using leftover whey from making ricotta which gives a lovely tang.
Dave draws Prestwich
A few pictures of my brand new #Prestwich doodle map! I’ve been meaning to do a Prestwich map for quite a while so it was fun to finally get round to doing it.
Prints are now available to buy from my online shop!https://t.co/Ro03QA5Bv5 pic.twitter.com/8s2xqOL4F0

You might recognise Dave Draws' style from those beautiful Salford Rum bottles. We love his detailed black and white doodles so this new one of 'up n coming' Prestwich caught our eye. How many food and drink businesses can you spot?

Last year, the double zero heroes at Proove Pizza gave away over £20k worth of free pizzas to key workers - over 2200 pizzas. They've now brought the scheme back - with a difference. The philanthropic pizza parlour is sending out free cook-at-home pizza kits to key workers across Manchester and Sheffield for the first two weeks of March. Find out more here.
Rudy's pizza butties for Sale
Speaking of pizza, get a load of these panuozzo, traditional Neapolitan sandwiches made by Rudy's who have recently opened in Sale. How can you resist?
Burger + gravy
We recently wrote about the news of Birria Brothers tacos, the latest pop up at The NQ's glorious Koffee Pot. Have they now gone too far? You decide.

We were still thinking about last week's yolk from Another Heart To Feed until this one from Mustard in Altrincham and Sale popped up on our timeline and swept it aside. Essential viewing.
We can not wait to open our doors again!🤩
