While catching up on some of the posts on this board, I was amazed to find so many Anglophiles and Brits. I happen to be a Queens goil married to a Scouse. A Scouse, for the uninitiated is a Liverpudlian, so-named for that city's favorite dish: Scouse--a kind of Irish stew. My husband waxes nostalgic about this stuff, especially the version served as school lunches. Go figure. Our first years of marriage involved me putting him through good food boot camp--he of the mushy peas, chip butties, and beans on toast. He has now been thoroughly indoctrinated in the ways of good eating, but occasionally still longs for the swill of his youth. I have never been able to approximate his idealized version of scouse--probably because I season my food. Does anyone either have a recipe or know of a restaurant that serves the stuff?
