Though known globally for its status as the birthplace of The Beatles, its rivalling football teams and as a European capital of culture; it is Liverpool’s thriving food and drink scene that is starting to turn heads these days.
Fine dining establishments pepper the city’s streets, from The Art School by Paul Askew to the intimate Fraiche just across the estuary in Birkenhead and the extraordinary Panoramic 34, which offers diners 360° views of the city from the top of Liverpool’s tallest building.
However there are plenty of less formal eateries making a name for themselves too. Visitors to Antony Gormley’s famous statues on Crosby Beach flock to The Tree House afterwards for their hearty roasts, while The Baltic Social turns afternoon tea on its head with their ‘punk’ version, serving mini cheeseburgers and Oreo sponge cakes instead of your usual cucumber sandwich fare.
The Liverpool Cook Book showcases the best of this vibrant culinary community, featuring recipes and anecdotes from the city’s chefs, restaurateurs, café owners and more. Whether you use this book to discover a new favourite haunt, or try your hand cooking up something of your own – it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in.
