10 Sheffield foods, drinks and dishes every local should try at least once
Everyone loves a good nosh, and here in Sheffield we have more than enough culinary delights to satisfy those hunger pangs.
Yorkshire may be famed for its iconic Yorkshire pudding, but Sheffield has a few of its own unique dishes and delicacies to keep your palate on its toes. Here are a few foods and drinks everyone in the city should try at least once.
1. Sheffield Fish Cakes
Sometimes referred to as a Yorkshire fish cake, this glorious creation comprises two pieces of potato with white fish sandwiched in the middle, which is then battered and fried to perfection.
Known locally as Hendo's or The Black Stuff, Henderson's Relish was originally made at 35 Broad Lane in Sheffield in 1885. The condiment can be found in most local chippys and adds a delicious hint of spice to any dish.
Launched by Sheffield based company Bassett in 1899, Liquorice Allsorts proved an instant hit and later inspired the mascot, Bertie Bassett, who has been a prominent feature in the branding of the sweets since the 1920s.
Yet another Bassett's product which proved to be a runaway success, Jelly Babies are still loved today and can credit their popularity in part to George Harrison of The Beatles, who once said they were his favourite sugary treat.
