The Best of Britain: Fish and Chips

The most continental British dish there is (next to Chicken Tikka of course!) Fish and Chips is a firm favourite throughout the UK, but why?


Fish and chips became a stock meal among the working classes in the 17th century and then became the massive development of fish drawing in the North Sea.

In 1860 the first ever Fish and Chip shop in Tommyfield Market, England was opened. By 1910, the UK was taken by storm, having a staggering total of 25,000 stores dotted across the England.

White fish is normally used either haddock or cod then smothered in batter or breadcrumbs and deep-fried to create the perfect balance between the crunch of the batter and the  fish meat.
