Food for a Liverpool Themed Party

For our "overseas visitors", you will find some more generic English recipes on our English National Football Team page, if you prefer.

No doubt the food served in both restaurants and homes in Liverpool has changed over recent years, and embraced a whole host of modern, healthy and international influences. However, traditional Liverpudlian food - like much of the food of the North West of England - developed from a need to provide warmth and calories in a cold wet climate, using whatever local ingredients were available. Being a major sea port, Liverpool has over the years been visited by sailors and seafarers from all over the world. In the 18th and 19th centuries visitors from Scandinavia were particularly numerous, and they brought with them a recipe called "lapskaus", a one pot meal of lamb or mutton, potatoes and vegetables. The name was shortened and anglicised to "scouse" by the locals. The dish Scouse is still popular today in local pubs, and of course the term has now become a slang name for anything or anyone from the Liverpool area.

The Liverpool region is not known for its wine production. In the past a number of local breweries were established in Liverpool, of which the best known was probably Cains. However, these all seem to have either gone out of business or have been bought by larger concerns, so "authentic" Liverpool beer is not an easy commodity to get hold of. There are a number of successful micro-breweries in the city, but obtaining their products outside the area can be difficult.
