Global Scouse Day is back for 2022 – watch for everything you need to know!

10 months ago

By The Guide Liverpool

Global Scouse Day is back and is celebrating 10 years of dishing up Liverpool’s favourite dish

Global Scouse Day returns on Monday February 28 and, after switching things up last year because of Covid, organisers are setting out to make this one the biggest yet.

Hundreds of restaurants, cafes and bars across our city, and worldwide, will be putting scouse on their menus in honour of Liverpool’s best loved dish.

Global Scouse Day is encouraging anyone who loves it, whether that’s the meat version or a veggie ‘blind’ scouse, to either go out and enjoy a bowl with friends or cook it up at home and make a proper event of it.

Then they can become a part of the GSD community by taking a pic and posting it on social with the hashtag #GlobalScouseDay. And, because The Guide Liverpool is supporting this year’s celebration of all things Scouse, tag us in too for a share.

Lots of people have a family recipe for making scouse, passed on from their mums and nans and with a few little original twists to make it a bit special. Or, if you want to stick with the tried and tested traditional, Global Scouse Day has a couple of recipes on its website – one meaty and one that’s vegan and gluten free.

Laura Worthington, of Laura’s Little bakery fame, who’s been involved with GSD from day one 10 years ago, says the day is about more than just celebrating one of our home-cooked favourites.

“When we first started GSD we had to rally places to put scouse on their menu, but so many places have it as a regular dish now.

Global Scouse Day

“Since we launched 10 years ago many, many, many bowls of scouse have been consumed and we’ve had so much support, not just from the restaurants, cafes and bars, but from the Lord Mayor of Liverpool as well as Everton and Liverpool footy clubs.

“In previous years, venues as far afield as the US and Australia have put scouse on their menus for the day, and we’ve had every different version you can think of – Indian scouse, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, scouse burgers, scouse fries, scouse tacos and scouse pizza!

“2022 will be our 10th year of flying the scouse flag so this year we want to go even bigger.”

As well as feeding everyone with amazing stew, Global Scouse Day has also raised money and awareness for local charities including R Charity, which supports the Royal and Broadgreen hospitals, The Whitechapel Centre and Clatterbridge Cancer Centre. It’s also helped to give out free scouse to the city’s homeless people.

If you’re in south Liverpool, GSD’s own chefs will be creating and selling their own version – scouse bowls, served inside gorgeous crusty bread – in collaboration with Derek’s on Allerton Road and the Plattsville Bakehouse.

This year Global Scouse Day will be supporting the Owen McVeigh Foundation which crate magical memories for children with cancer and during the weekend 25-28th Feb you can help the cause by purchasing a Scouse Bowl from Derek’s on Allerton Road where a percentage of the sale will go directly towards the charity.

The Guide will have a list of restaurants, cafes and bars who are taking part in this year’s Global Scouse Day, so let us know if you’re one of them and we can add you on there, and if you’re eating it or making it then don’t forget use the hashtag #GlobalScouseDay and let everyone know about it. Restaurants serving up Scouse on the day can email us now to have their venue listed below [email protected]

And Laura’s top tip for cooking the perfect pan? “Make it the day before because scouse is always better the next day, we all know this!”
