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. 

Roadmap reaction

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.

Flour power

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 

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?

Unlock free pizza

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

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.

Yolk of the week

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.

Chamomile cocktail

This gorgeous looking negroni from Tast is currently leading in the 'which drink will we make a beeline for first' when lockdown ends stakes. Pure class.
