The Pyclet - The New Age Blini

4th November 2014
Pyclet Parlour

Ever visited the fabulous Pyclet Parlour in Derby’s glorious Victorian Market Hall? If you haven’t, add it to your bucket list.

Perch on a stool at the bakery counter and savour a great tasting experience like no other.

It works like this. Firstly, you will be greeted warmly and conversation will flow freely. 

So what is a pyclet I hear you ask? Well, pyclets are flat crumpets, made with flour, yeast, milk from Duffield Dairy, the tiniest bit of salt and baked on griddles. They are one of Derbyshire’s greatest food traditions and have been passionately resurrected and reinvented.

The hard part is choosing from a great range of tasty toppings. This menu has some killer combinations. Smoked salmon and horseradish cream, ham and home-made piccalilli, home-made jam, Nutella, butter and black pepper. I opt for hot, buttered pyclets (you get two as one simply isn’t enough), dressed with crumbly Colston Bassett Stilton, honey and walnuts. The smell is amazing and what a taste sensation. You ought to try.

What’s even more delightful is washing all the yumminess down with tea from Whittards of Chelsea, served in Derby’s very own Royal Crown Derby china. Little touches like this make this dining experience extra special and memorable.

The café also serve amazing hot oatcake wraps. The melted cheese and ham is very popular or why not try slices of hot, locally sourced organic rare-breed beef with horseradish mayonnaise and rocket?

Derby Pyclet Company

Next time you’re in Derby you must pop to the Market Hall, where generations of Derby folk got their pyclets and still do thanks to the Pyclet Parlour. You won’t be disappointed and will most certainly come away with love in your belly and a smile on your face, You can even buy a pack of pyclets as a gift for a friend (or to have for yourself for supper when you get home!).

Great, honest, local food. Cooked on the day, by hand and most importantly with love.
