I went back to the north east for the weekend and indulged in my absolute favouritest delicacy - the Pattie. Not pasty, nor that Jamaican spicy pasty thing, but a slice of cod sandwiched between two slices of potato, battered and deep fried. Known as a Pattie along the North Yorkshire coast, it's otherwise called a Fishcake in some parts of West Yorkshire and a Scallop somewhere else (but I forget where). I've had great success producing them at home (although you can't get the really fresh cod that produces the authentic flavour) and the wife made an interesting but also tasty version using salmon, but it's difficult finding taties big enough to provide the two slices. As I don't believe that chippies make their own Patties (after all, they buy their chips already chipped), they must be getting their uncooked Patties from a supplier. Anyone know of a supplier? Alternatively, I can't believe that the rest of the country is letting this delicacy go unnoticed. It must be sold under a different name. Can I have some feedback to let me know which parts of the country produce this ambrosia of the Gods and by what name it is revered? When my old fellah eventually pops his clogs, I'll have no other reason to travel back up North (other than the beer, the atmosphere, countryside, seascape etc.) and I'll have to accept that my Patties aren't Â£1.70 apiece (some places less than Â£1) but, with fuel, will cost over Â£35 each (I always have at least two).
