A Liverpool-Based Food Blog

DIY Pizza with Fritto

I'll start with the obvious here: I'm no stranger to a pizza. After a teenage career spinning dough in Dominos, I've since tried my making my own at The Baltic Pizza Co and, more recently, spent a shameful number of hours putting together my A-Z list of Liverpool pizza joints.  

Incidentally, one of the places on that list is Fritto- and no it's not under 'F',  it's under 'X'... because, let's face it, the list is a shambles. Usually based at the Kazimier gardens, Fritto are mostly known for their Italian street food including their signature panzerotto- deep-fried calzone pizza. I finally had one of these when I went away last year and it's every bit as filthy & delicious as it looks.

RECIPE: Mini Apple Pies

If there's one good thing to have in the freezer at times like this then it's ready-made pastry. I know that sounds like literally the most ridiculous thing to stock up on but almost everything is made better with its presence. You can wrap sausages in it, make pie crusts, use it as the base for veggie tarts and tray bakes and, best of all, add almost anything sweet to it make it into dessert. Don't believe me? Fill it with nutella and bake it and I'll accept your apologies later.

RECIPE: (Very) Rocky Road

Given how much I like to cook it was only a matter of time really before my half-arsed recipes made it onto my blog, and with restaurant reviewing currently of the window, now seems like a good time to post my first. It seems a bit cheeky to call this a recipe since it's so straightforward a chimp of above average intelligence could probably manage it. It involves no baking, very little measuring and is essentially just a load of snacks mixed together in a bowl. Perfect!

Lockdown with the LIDS

It's been a couple of weeks now since my last post and I hope that life in lockdown is starting to feel a little bit less daunting. One of the things I mentioned was that whilst our indie businesses, bars and restaurants are closed I still wanted to support them if I could providing, of course, that it was safe to do so. With takeaway food still being blessed by the UK Gov and a new system of doorstep deliveries making it entirely contact free, it's been pretty easy to keep on getting good food without having to step foot outside my house.

Liverpool Lockdown- An Update

Christ, what a year this week this has been. Before I get started with what is, I imagine, going to be an absolute essay of a post I want to reiterate this definitely isn’t going to be a ‘woe is me’ type of thing- I'm saying that to you as well as to remind myself since I tend to slip into whining before I've even realised. I’m not great at coping with things at the best of times and with what's going on at the minute my brain feels more like scrambled eggs than a functional, human organ so please forgive me if that's what it sounds like. I've been semi-absent from blogging for a lil' while now so I thought I'd better give you a bit of an update since the world appears to be coming to a stand still right now.

So, what's the plan for Eat Liverpool?

This whole blog came about after a long summer holidays of being restless in my house and, whilst I know it’s just me posting pictures of food on the internet,  it’s honestly done wonders for me and my mental health. It's kept me busy in my downtime, distracted me from stress at work, gave me a new outlet for my writing and pushed me to confront my social anxiety by meeting up with loads of strangers (other bloggers) some of whom I now love to bits and can thankfully call my friends.

Lu Ban

It's always the case that when you can't find something it's usually in the place you least expect it and in the case of Lu Ban, the new Chinese restaurant fronted by head chef Dave Critchley, that's certainly true. Hiding inconspicuously amongst the red bricks of the old Cains district, Lu Ban is inspired by the traditional, seasonal food of the Tianjin region and is absolutely nothing like your local Chinese.

You've had three years of these posts now so you know the drill: swerve the unnecessary January diet, save some money, try somewhere new and check the T's & C's before you go. Have I missed somewhere? Slide into my DM's and let me know!
