No sooner has Fogg landed at Liverpool Pier than he is marched off by the police in a case of mistaken identity. He is just six hours from London. As we await news of his fate on the perishing dockside, I feel the need for a stew. Scouse: originally called Labskause, then shortened to Skause, then anglicized to Scouse. The lovely Rosie Scott used to cook this for me as an alternative to flu-busting chicken soup. It’s an equally heart-warming tonic for a good night’s sleep.<
