This achingly hip ice cream isn’t just for blokes who wear brogues with no socks and trousers cropped above their ankles: their flavours, like chocolate and sea salt or strawberry and black pepper, tread the line between the traditional and the oddball, and are too good to allow people on fixed-gear bikes to keep to themselves. They’re stocked all across the county.
Herb Fed Poultry
Pilmoor, York YO61 2QG
You might think you know poultry, but you really don’t know poultry until you’ve tried Herb Fed’s free range birds. The free-roaming lifestyle and natural, herb-led diet of their chickens, bronze turkeys and roosters makes for healthy birds and therefore extraordinarily tender, juicy meat, and they’re beloved by pro chefs across the country.

Simple name, simple pitch: proper British beef and pork rolled into balls in Yorkshire along with shallots, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper. Any questions? Oh yes, since you ask, you can get them with smokey or hot twists too.

It’s a 500-seat behemoth at the top of Great Horton Road slinging out plate after plate of legit Kashmiri cuisine. Our stomachs are rumbling just thinking about it.
