I spent HOURS yesterday making traditional scouse for my dp and step dd's to insist on calling it wasnt just any old stew it was SCOUSE!

I'm going to be thick now but what's the difference?

Scouse follows a norwegian recipe, using lamb and beef and became popular in liverpool when norwegian seamen brought the recipe over....hence why people from liverpool are scousers

YANBU but you've no chance. I make some lovely casseroley-type things ranging from Boeuf en Daube to Morroccan-style Lamb Tagines and, every time, I get an enthusiastic 'Oooh lovely! Stew!!' Past caring...

It's all stew. My family's all from Liverpool...I can't tell the difference between Scouse and Stew.

Foxy does this strike you as an example of gaslighting??
