Help needed to contribute to the “Mackem CewkBewk”- submit your ideas about local dialects and foods!

Help is being asked to contribute to an upcoming publication that will detail local foods and receipes.

As previously mentioned on SGM, the new “Mackem Cewkbewk” will be the counterpart to the “Mackem Dictionary”, offering a Sunderland twist on our favourite meals.

But what should feature in the book, exactly? This is where your help is needed. Members of the public are being invited to help contribute to the Cewkbewk’s contents and to explore local words for foods.

This also covers local dialect differences within Sunderland on matters of food, such as for example words for table, fish and chips, potatos, chewing gum, etc
