The annual celebration Global Scouse Day is back this February! Celebrations based around scouse (meat stew dish), will see bars, cafes and restaurants not only in and around the city, but around the world put scouse on the menu for the day.
It’s fair to say there will be huge debates in every household around the city who serves the best bowl of this hearty warm dish, so grab your bowls and spoons and let’s get tucked in! With Liverpool’s most famous dish set to be top of the menu come Thursday 28th February, where will you be getting your city’s traditional cuisine fix?
How did it all begin?
Global Scouse Day began with a “scouse supper” with friends held every year on Liverpudlian adventurer Graham Hughes ‘s birthday. When he left the country in December 2008, Laura Worthington (of Laura’s Little Bakery) thought it would be fun to continue the tradition in his absence. Over the course of the following five years, Global Scouse Day grew from a small gathering to an event that captured the city’s imagination… with over 100 bars, restaurants and cafes putting scouse on the menu on February 28th and saw support from the Lord Mayor of Liverpool as well as Everton and Liverpool footy clubs.
Since then, Global Scouse Day has become an annual fixture, raising funds for R Charity, The Whitechapel Centre, Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, and providing free food to the city’s homeless.
