Lunchtime Talk: A Saucy Tale - A History of Henderson's Relish


Henderson's Relish – affectionately dubbed “Hendo's” – is a Sheffield phenomenon, eulogised by Sheffielders, sometimes to the bemusement of those outside the region who've often never heard of it.

Hear the true and remarkable history of Sheffield’s favourite sauce and best kept secret, from humble beginnings in a Victorian grocery shop to celebrity endorsements and modern production in a state-of-the-art factory.

Mark Dawson has been researching, writing and talking about the history of food and drink for the last 20 years. After a PhD from Nottingham University for his study of food and drink in a gentry household in the 16th century, he has conducted extensive research into food and drink in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire in the 1500s and 1600s.
