    What foods or recipes are particular to your area?

    On the Isle Of Man, chips, cheese and gravy is the local delicacy 8)

    I used to live near St Helens and they had a 'split' which is half mushy peas and half chips.

    I asked for a bag of chips and a barmcake in our local chippy once and got a load of funny looks from the staff and customers.

    I got a reply very similar to Peter Kay…….

    A barrrrrrm………caaaaaake??????? lol

    They'd obviously never heard of a barmcake on the Isle Of Man 🙂

    I tried jellied eels in Brighton once.

    Lobbed them off the pier, and I swear even the seagulls were spitting them out.

    I was recently introduced to butter pie. A pie i hadn't tried. Lovely.

    A lancashire delicacy apparently

    More lancastrian fodder:

    Black pudding
    Hotpot
    Morecambe bay potted shrimps
    Parched pea's
    Chorley cakes

    Pasties, pasties and more frickin pasties. Nothing beats a pasty on a cold day watching the rugby though. Hot pasty and a pint. Lovely.

    Just back from Germany – I think the UK needs Currywurst. Super stuff!

    when I was a lad in the evening it was haggis supper, white pudden supper, red pudden supper, brekkie was lorne sausage and white pudden slice, I also think who invented the oval plate, thirded, with chips then curry then rice should be knighted mind you we had exotic dessets like rhubarb stalks and a brown paper bag with sugar in it.

    As a Brummie I'd have to say Balti and Indian sweets, Jamaican curry patties, cheese and bun, pork scratchings, hot pork sandwiches and faggots( more of a yam yam thing really ).
    Now I live in Devon, hogs pudding, clotted cream, and a thousand local cheeses.

    Well I live in London where food was invented so….

    Fried fish is a Jewish import from Europe, and became popular in London's East End, which had a strong Jewish community. It's likely the custom of eating Fish and Chips originated in this area. Other Jewish foods, such as Pickled Herring, Bagels, Latkes and Salt Beef became local delicacies.

    I've never eaten Jellied Eels, but I do like cockles and mussels, which were traditional 'poor man's food' here.

    The London Docks saw many spices and exotic foods coming in from all over the World. Many sailors settled here, and brought their culinary customs with them. You had Chinatown in Limehouse, and then those fromBritish India. Today's curry centres of Brick Lane and Green St are testament to that immigration.

    Now, we have Polish, Lebanese, Ethiopian, Turkish, Caribbean and all sorts of other eateries. Fabulous. You can still get a bloody good fry-up too.

    India Pale Ale was first brewed here too.

    Black pudding with loads of english mustard.
    Morecambe bay shrimps – preferably eaten sat outside a pub in Arnside looking across the bay.

    What's that delicacy they eat around Teeside?
    Parma or something. It involves a lot of cheese. 😯

    Staffordshire oatcakes . Proper good pancake type things just so much better! Stuffed with all good fillings and yum yum. My fave is Griddled then spread with jam and yoghurt.

    I heard that darn sarf they had fish shops and oop north they had chip shops and somewhere down the line someone decided it was a good idea to sell both.

    +1 – look forward to getting back up awa thu toon for me sarnies!

    (When I first moved down here I asked for 'pease pudding' at the local waitrose deli in Malvern – the lady serving looked at me as if I had just asked for a sh@t in a bag!! … "No Sir")

    😕

    Yorkshire pudding – as a course, not next to your beef and potatoes.

    Christmas cake and cheese.

    Ham and pease pudding stottie.

    Here I am, 65 miles from the nearest pease pudding outlet & after reading that I am now hungry for one!
