This storied city gave the world Stainless Steel,
Pulp, The Full Monty and The Arctic Monkeys.
But every day it gives more – the unique taste
of garlic, spices and tamarinds, first blended
into a secret recipe by Henry Henderson in 1885.

Whitby Fish & Chips and Henderson’s Relish:
both were included in the Dalesman magazine’s
list of ‘75 great icons of Yorkshire’. Simply put
them together for a classic Yorkshire treat.

Made in Sheffield to a secret recipe since 1885, ‘Hendo’s’,
‘the Black Stuff’, ‘Relish’ is today a Sheffield institution, adding
spice and savour to any dish. Splash it on Wensleydale Rarebit
for a classic Yorkshire treat.

However you take your pudding, a little Henderson’s
Relish can bring spice and savour to any meal. Stirred
into gravy or splashed straight on, Hendo's makes a
Yorkshire classic even tastier.

From Steak & Kidney to Chicken & Mushroom –
Henderson’s Relish adds oomph to any pie.
Whatever the filling, Hendo’s is willing.
