WINTER RECIPES – are tumbling from the pages of the newspapers thick and fast of late. Wilfred Owen (First World War poet) mentions a dish that his father used to serve up when the family lived in Birkenhead and were just able to survive. It was called lobscouse – dripping and bread soaked in boiling water. Doesn’t it just sound delicious! Scouse stew would usually be made with the cheaper cuts of meat. In Leigh, they used corned beef and folk were known as lobby gobblers. Wigan folk were known as lobbies.
