In Yorkshire we have Yorkshire puds, parkin (very tasty ginger cake), Yorkshire brack (cake), Wensleydale cheese, Farrah's Harrogate toffee, Harrogate spa water and the best tea you can drink... Yorkshire Tea. Then there's Brymor ice cream, rhubarb from the Wakefield rhubarb triangle and Pontefract liquorice cakes. All can be washed down with a nice pint of Black Sheep Riggwelter, Theakston's Old Peculier or my favourite Morocco ale from the Daleside Brewery at Starbeck.

We also have good food as well. You can't beat Welsh Lamb, Cawl, Welsh Cakes, pembroke potatoes as well as a good selection of cheeses and butters. In drinks we have in beer, DD which Prince Philip drinks and Brains Bitter, a selection of Welsh Wines, Whiskey and Mead (my Christmas tipple). There are many more, just like in Scotland. I believe there is a smoked fish called Ambroth Smokies? I did not like the look of them when I was in Scotland, but delicious.
We're right on the border here so a bit of Yorkshire & Lancashire combined ~ Sop suppers, Lancashire Hotpot, Eccles Cakes (my gran made the best ones ever, being from Eccles and all that) and my MILs best one is to serve the Yorkshire pudding as a starter with onion gravy apparently that's how it's done on her side of the fence.....
Other than that you are looking at Chicken Tikka Massala or fish, chips & mushy peas............:o

We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.
