Poll: The Great Northern Cookbook – tripe or treat?

This week saw the launch of The Great Northern Cookbook – a television series running on Channel 5 which aims to celebrate our local cuisines.

I know from twitter that quite a few of few of you tuned in to see ex-Corrie star turned food producer Sean Wilson tour the north and sample fish and chips in Whitby, tripe in Merseyside and a supersized pie in Yorkshire.

What did you think? Is that what food in the north is all about? I’d love to hear your view either in the comments below, on twitter or by casting a vote in the poll below.

For my part, from the title, I’d expected it to be more of a cooking show but I’ll be tuning in again next week. I do hope the programme makers have taken the time to research our changing and diverse tastes – maybe we’ll see some of the region’s chefs who work so hard to present on a new take on these traditional foods or celebrate the fantastic variety of cuisines now on offer.

As I’ve said before – it’s not all parmos and pies.

The The Great Northern Cookbook is £12.80. You can order this or browse my pick of other northern cookbooks here.
