Moreen Simpson: Don’t listen to Ainsley – rowies are nectar of the gods

3 2 0

As a lifetime rowie-raver, I’m aye fascinated aboot the reaction of in-aboot-comers to the Neest delicacy.

Like chef Ainsley Harriott and food critic (my dream jobbie) Grace Dent last week, on Channel 4’s Best of Britain by the Sea. They had a tasting in Fittie – the perfect place, since local legend has it that the fatty morsels were first cooked for trawlermen to take on long sea trips.

That said, although I adore ‘em, the very sight of the greasy pat in the midst of up-and-doonie waves would have me instantly Spewy-Lewy. Nor have I ever been sure – are they rowies in the city and butteries among the choochters?

Ainsley wisnae that impressed, the uber-hyper chef reckoning you might as well rub lard straight on to yer thighs. Trouble was, they were served dry rowies.........
