    And from the age of 9 I like liver pate with the addition of chicken or rabbit meat. And a little later he began to eat liver stewed with vegetables. The main thing is to cook it right, it's very tasty.

      It tended to be Pakistani kids rather than white British kids who ate liver at home. Chicken and lamb liver was most popular. It was usually cooked with lots of spices.

      Halal butcher shops still resemble the old school butcher shops that cut off pieces of meat on request and always have a stock of organs.

        All families have their own traditions. The liver of a chicken or rabbit is very tender, does not have an intense taste like beef or pork. Offal is very tasty, the main thing is to cook it right.

          Was beef and pork liver the most commonly served varieties in schools? It is the cheapest because of low consumer demand.

            The fact that 1982 was the year that Nottingham had got its first McDonald's meant that locally, fast food was different around the time of the Falklands War as well - not many Nottingham people had tasted a Big Mac before that, I assume.

              With a previous post mentioning expensive microwave ovens, I remember buying my first one from Comet. Carried it to the bus stop then off the bus to home , it weighed a ton!

                Microwave ovens don't seem to have changed much in their appearances - it's only their power and efficiency that has improved over the years. I saw a Noel's Telly Years where Noel Edmonds showed two different microwave ovens from 1980 (the edition of Noel's Telly Years which was being featured) and 1997 (the year it was seen on BBC 1), and to be honest, both microwave ovens looked just as good as each other - it only the radio cassette recorder that he featured in the same slot that looked as it had improved a lot in those 17 years.

                  It was also a brand of electrical retailers across Great Britain when pluralised.
