Hock and Dough


(or Hough-and-Dough) Pork scraps, such as hock or rib meat, with sliced potato, onion, stock and herbs baked in a dish the sides and part of the base of which are lined with suet pastry.

Wellingborough Town football club, one of the oldest in the country, are known as The Doughboys after the dish.

Dean Baldwin's Life of H.E. Bates tells that "Hock-and-Dough was a term still commonly used in Wellingborough, the market town with the public school on the Nene, when I was a child, the name deriving from some kind of poor man's dish of trotter and pastry said to be much favoured in that town but which the men of Rushden ... held to be food beneath contempt."
