Tripe Tours for Lancashire?

Canny New Yorkers with a taste for tripe can take part in specially organised 'tripe tours' thanks to  enterprising Big Apple tour firm, Turnstile Tours. 

Billed as part of its Immigrant Foodways Tour, the first stop  is Anibal Meat Market - a Puerto Rican-style butcher shop in Brooklyn where this wonderful display of fine honeycomb tripe was snapped.

Here in the UK, tripe lovers aren't so lucky just yet, but that could all change if the Tripe Marketing Board  has its way.

TMB Chairman, Sir Norman Wrassle, said: "Just as with the moon landings, what the US does today, Lancashire does tomorrow so it's only a matter of time before we have our own Tripe Tours.  There are plenty of markets across the county that could put on a dazzling display of tripe to match - and even exceed - Brooklyn's best.  I look forward to the day."

Sir Norman has instructed the TMB Communications Department to undertake a feasibility study on the idea and a report is expected sometime in the summer, although a firm decision may have to wait until the Autumn of 2013.  In the meantime, any British tripe lovers visiting New York will no doubt be clamouring to join the Immigrant Foodways Tour.  If you join it yourself, let us know what you think!
