TV presenter Anita Rani has praised a Bradford cafe where you can find Yorkshire parkin, homemade bread, and vegetarian delights.

Anita, the current chancellor at the University of Bradford, has been in the city to hand out student awards and launch her new Rani scholarship.

She celebrated the occasion at Plenty at the Square, a vegetarian and vegan cafe based at the South Square Centre in Thornton.

Posting to her Instagram story, Anita said: “Massive heartfelt thank you to the women of Plenty at the Square, which is a delicious vegetarian restaurant run by women. It’s a co-operative.

“All the food is fresh and locally sourced. In fact, the delicious pickles are from the cash and carry in Bradford. It’s basically a zero waste business.

“What can I say about the women, that they are generous, they’re kind, they’re brilliant, the food is delicious. Ginger Yorkshire parkin? Thank you very much! Everyone should go there.”

She added: “It’s significant that it’s in Thornton because Thornton was the birthplace of the Brontes.”

The Bradford-born TV personality’s new scholarship is hoped to get more women into STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).

The broadcaster previously told the Telegraph & Argus about the power of higher education, particularly for women and girls.

“It feels really right for me to take this position, access to higher education is something I believe in,” said the ‘Baby Does A Runner’ author.
