Red pudding supper - a Scottish "delicacy" found in Fife and surrounds, but not across the whole of the country or the UK by any means. The "supper" part indicates that it comes with chips.

As kids we'd always get a red pudding supper from Davy's fish shop when we visited our grandparents in Cowdenbeath. This would be very late 60s/early 70s. I can almost taste it now!

Not my photo, Swifty, but looks like a classic fixed-blade French Laguiole knife to me (although they also do folding knives). Lovely things, Laguiole knives - always wanted to get myself a set, but quite pricey and it has to be said, way too good to be using on a red pudding! :lol:

Just as an aside… Looking round the Xmas market in Brussels some years back - before I'd heard of Lagiuole – I bought a knife identical in style to theirs for a few euros. Was well pleased with it as I liked the look of it very much. That was until the first time I used it and the edge of the blade started to crumple.

Turned out it was a fake!

Muffin is the proper Manchester name for it don't watch corrie so can't comment. Called a barm cake in Widnes.

that is a fruit teacake

Whatever it is the buggers are tight with the butter! It's merely been shown a pack of Lurpak. If you're going to have proper butter - and it seems that it's better for you than marge, then spread it thick. 

Edit - don't spread it, slice it, and salted is better.

Loooks nice Philly. What is it - potatoes, leeks and cheese? Nice with some roast chicken.

 

Sliced or cubed, potatoes, swede, savoy cabbage, butter and mature cheddar cheese  baked in the oven... sprinkle with chopped chives if required, love this with any meal or stuffed into a Yorkshire pudding with gravy ...

I was born and raised in Lincolnshire. Here's a product from there - stuffed chine. I used to turn my nose up at this but it has been likened to a fine french pate. I quite fancy some now - with some bread, pickle and salad. There's a good butchers in Louth who make this - my learned friend Swifty would concur I'm sure.

Battered chips are a West Midlands delicacy. 

They are exactly what it says, chips with a very thin coating of batter, just enough to make them really crunchy. 

:ohmy: Battered fecking chips? 

Ay up Dave - hope you're well mate. I wondered where Aunt Bessie got the idea from - their oven chip products are lightly battered. On the battered front I havent had one of these for ages...................

The batter has got me reminiscing now. Back in the day we used to travel to Clifton Hall niters from Mablethorpe. We had a ritual which included stopping at a chippie at Tickhill, having a Yorkshire fishcake and chips, then onwards for a pint at the Charters Arms in Rotherham, and then to the all niter - one of the best, and plenty of our other staple at the time. :wicked: Great times.

Carlin peas, a traditional northern dish which you don't see nowadays.

Didn't Carlins get banned by the EU, as they are not classed as a food for human consumption.

Used to love Carlin Sunday.

Nice with one of our local delicacies, Cumberland rum butter.  

I always used to take Cumberland rum butter, XL cheese crisps, Kendal mint cake and Cumberland sausage down to my sister's in Brighton when I visited, but I haven't been able to find rum butter for a few years now, they don't sell in in Tebay services anymore.

It's been replaced by brandy butter which I haven't tried.

The local bakery used to make rum butter until they were bought out by Gregg's.  I made my own a couple of years ago.  Tasted better than the bought stuff, but then I was generous with the rum.

My mate's mam used to celebrate Carlin night with the old pigeon peas when we were kids.  Didn't do us any harm.

The Staffordshire Oatcake, a savoury delicacy not to be confused with a Scottish Oat cake.

Fill with bacon and cheese, sausage and cheese, bacon and egg (you get the picture) roll them up, dip in the sauce or ketchup and enjoy,  Its one off the few foods I really miss from the UK............................

no mate, klondikes are slices of potato in thick batter. These are normal chips in very thin batter so it just forms a crispy coating. 

Dave they're called Scallops in Manchester. Talking of chip shops. When I was a kid growing up in Widnes, chips and peas was called a mixture. In St Helens it was called a split. caused me a few problems when I went out with a girl from St Helens when she said do you want some of my split :yes: :lol:

I was round me mate Dave's one night when his dad Albert came in and said "Anyone for a pork pie sandwich". WTF? :ohmy: He was from Sheffield. 

Old Albert was a great cook though - he made great sunday dinners and great everything. He worked as a cook on a north sea trawler. Good old boy was Albert - funny too.
