Hi all, I'd like a bit of Northern assistance if possible... I am currently engaged in a relationship with a homesick wiganner (Orrel,I believe) So have to endure the daily tirade on how the North is far superior to the South, how the people are friendlier, you can get decent food, etc etc... (I'm sure you all get the gist)
And for Christmas I was hoping to suprise him with a few homely treats. I'm trying to get hold of some Barm cakes, meat and potato pies, black pudding, butter pie and just about anything else anyone can think of. Especially brands which are specific to the area he grew up in (I understande the old bakehouse is a great favourite??) So, a) if anyone can suggest some more typically northern goodies, that would be very helpful and b) if anybody can suggest a method of transportation (eg, shops which offer a mail order service etc..) I would be eternally indebted! Help me bring a smile to this pastry deprived mans face! Cheers, Anna (long suffering southerner)
