Marco Pierre White Loves It!!! by Catboy
I am a Sheffield lad but I now live in Dubai presenting ‘The Catboy & Geordiebird Breakfast Show’ on Dubai 92. I regularly talk about Hendo’s on-air and there is a bit of a thing out here with my Yorkshire listeners about them bringing bottles out for each other.
There is quite a big expat community out here and plenty of Sheffielder’s. Every time I mention Henderson’s on my show I get loads of feedback from the listeners. They did sell the Henderson’s crisps out here in a really posh supermarket in Dubai Mall, but I haven’t seen them since.
On a recent breakfast show, we had Marco Pierre White talking about the launch of his new 5-star restaurant ‘Titanic’ in Dubai. During the course of the conversation, and knowing Marco was from Leeds, I asked if he ever cooked with Henderson’s. He had no idea what it was.
Within fifteen minutes I’d given him a brief history and showed him photos of the Henderson’s building in Sheffield. I also got my wife to drive into the studio with my last bottle of the stuff!
Marco quite literally drank half a bottle of Henderson’s on air (you can listen to the audio of him talking about it on this page). I’m down to my last half-bottle since Marco took the full one, but that said if I say that on-air, someone always fetches some on a return trip.
Marco was also extremely keen to visit you and see how the relish is made, so hopefully he’ll be in touch with you soon!
On a final note, my parents are coming to visit later in the year to see our new baby (which, by the way, might have a name you’ll really like).
All the best
Henderson’s Relish Forever by Rod Fretwell
Hi to everyone at Henderson’s,
I have just celebrated my 60th birthday and as a complete surprise, I was presented with a ‘Henderson’s Birthday Cake’ – my girls know it’s an important part of my life.
I was about 5 years old when I first tasted Henderson’s, which was in a meat pie being sold from a corner shop close to City Road baths.
It became a weekly ritual in those days that once we had enjoyed a night swimming and messing about at the baths we had “one of those meat pies with that relish stuff in it”.
Today I live in Bolton, Lancashire and have to make sure that when I am visiting relatives in Sheffield that I buy enough bottles for my stock, and additional bottles to give to my friends who have also become hooked on the taste of Henderson’s Relish.
They call me the Henderson’s Lancashire Rep!!!
I attended a friend’s wedding recently, and incidentally the brides Mum presented me with a bottle of Henderson’s. She had been told that I put Henderson’s on everything – which in reality is about right!!!
Also, being an ‘Owls’ supporter it was great to see that you have a special edition in celebration of their promotion to the Championship.
Keep up the great work and for my part I will continue to promote the best relish in the world to all neighbours, friends and workmates here in Lancashire.
All the very best to you all.

Their names are Tara and Andrew you will see from the tattoo that their names are in the section for ingredients.
Relish it Poem by Fred Pass (in loving memory)
Henderson’s Relish is known worldwide
from Cooka Monga to Chippa Dag,
It’s better known than Sheffield Steel.
And we’re not the sort to brag.
Whether Chips and Fish, or Dumplings,
or Auntie Elsies Home made pie,
Henderson’s Relish will make it taste better,
so go on give it a try.
So when you’ve prepared a plate of food
and its taste, you want to embelish,
you will make yourself popular with everyone
by adding some Henderson’s Relish

Martin Cree from Frechville in Sheffield has spent the last 7 years doing up his scooter. He decided to use the Hendersons logo, as he is a keen fan of our relish and because he is from Sheffield.
