Andrew Hussey does a programme about Northern food.
And he is back to visit his home town of Liverpool. Living in Paris he talks of Terroir (well I think thats what he said as I cant understand his put on scouse lob accent).
He wants to explore food and its relationship to class politics and history. He calls Liverpool a special place not quite England and not quite the North. A frontier zone a collission between the Irish trying to get in over there and the English trying to get out over there.
Then he goes to Maggie Mays in Bold Street, and not Hope Street, as he says to taste the ghastly Scouse.
Then he's off to Salford to talk about Tripe. Well the programme was tripe confirming all the awful stereotypes about Liverpool and the North we thought we had left behind.
This week it was reported A RECORD number of restaurants in Merseyside have been recognised by the respected Which Good Food Guide, published this week.
As The Good Food Guide 2011 celebrates its 60th anniversary, standards in Merseyside continue to soar.
