A Conversation for The North Staffordshire Oatcake

The Oatcake

Post 1

Doctor Doggie

It has to be remembered that the Oatcake forms the basis of Potteries Rhyming slang, which goes something like this:

Oakcakes and Pairs - Stairs
Oatcakes and Meat - Feet
Oatcakes and Peas - Cheese
Oatcakes and Mental Fan - Gentleman

and so on...

In some areas of cheshire, they are also known as Oatpats because they look a bit like that kind of thing.
