Id like to talk about tripe. Theres a documentary about Northern English food on just now and it shows how such recipes as tripe had been central to Lancashire for generations and only gave way due to social embarrasement in the light of class prejudice. Haggis is the same method of preservation and avoiding waste. One restaraunt in Salford is trying to reinvent tripe as a popular dish for the modern age by updating the recipe. Perhaps they could do a vegetarian version of haggis while there at it

Are you now claiming that tripe is a dish cooked in a tripe and that the tripe , and the tripe , are thrown away without being eaten ???

Is this a new weight loss meal that you have invented ?
