The Food of the (Northern) Gods
March 9, 2017 8:07 AM Subscribe
Wigan (a seaside resort in the north of England) is the home of the Pie Barm, a delicacy and Cuisine of the North, and ideal corporate identity and enemy to bearded eaters. This is sometimes known as the Wigan Kebab, though occasionally as the Wigan Slappy, Wigan Butty or simpler Wiganburger which may or may not exist like the Wigan wedding cake, and should not be confused with a cob, barmcake, stotty or oven bottom or, especially, a growler butty. Distant cousins exist in Belfast and Australia. An instructional video on making one, and a descriptive Teletext page. Legal: court proceedings may be taken, other variations exist, are occasionally available to southerners, and consult your doctor before commencing a Pie Barm-centric diet.
