    Yes, something close to my heart.

    So what's your favourite northern nosh. Got any good recipes?

    Well, I felt that a North food thread would not be right unless it started with the humble black pudding. And as someone from the North-West I just have to say that a black pudding isn't a black pudding unless it comes from Bury :D

    And for any non-Northerners reading, you can order them online :D

    Now there are several different kinds of black pudding and I like the lean ones with barley in them - Bury Market yum yum ;)

    There's also white sausage, but that's just plain strange imho lol

    Award winning cumberland Sausage from Irvings the Butchers in Ulverston Cumbria

    28day hung sirloin Steak cooked rare.

    shotgun farmed Pheasant or Grouse, cleaned yourself and hung for a week before you slow roast it and then eat it (I used to be a hunter in my younger days)

    those are some of my favourites.

    Good old Northern veg - cant beat it!
    Roast Vegetable Yorkshire Pudding

    Simply take 700g Chunky Roasting Vegetables Mix (30655) and place in a roasting tin with 5 tbsp of oil. Bake for 15 minutes at 220ºC. Mix 1 egg into 100g plain flour seasoned with salt, pepper and thyme and gradually blend into the milk. Pour over the vegetables and bake for a further 40-45 minutes until golden and cooked throughout.
    Serve as an accompaniment or a vegetarian alternative.

    I've never been a big fan of Yorkshires but you know that looks fantastic. Never would have thought of adding veg to them. Will try that when the weather cools down.

    Why don't chillies in displays at Waitrose come with that added extra? :_|

    Very nice recipe Jase :D =P~

    So what about the good old Chorley Cake, Eccles Cake, Kendal Mint Cake, all good Northern food! I can't say scouse, I doubt it would suit my diet :p
