Arm yourselves, people. The most important event of the summer is only months away! That’s right, National Fish and Chips day is coming on June 3rd, here is how to celebrate in style with fish and chips this summer!
When you think of deliciously crispy batter and salt and vinegar sprinkled chips, your brain might conjure up images of the Great British seaside, huddled against the cold and rain, praying a seagull doesn’t choose your dinner for his own. But there is a better way.
You’ll be the hit of any big party if you decide that instead of a stuffy, sit-down dinner, you bring out a fish and chips van, delivering fresh, delicious food all night long. Saying your vows at a wedding? Celebrating a birthday? Fish and chips are a brilliant addition to any event, no matter how formal.
Fish & Chips A British Classic
According to the National Federation of Fish Fryers, fish and chips have been around in the UK since 1860 and spread rapidly through the industrialising cities of Manchester and London as hot, nutritious and easy to get meal for factory workers. Some have even claimed that this Great British dish helped win the First and Second World War- fish and potatoes were not rationed during the wars and so kept the soldiers and those working on the home front and the factories fed and energised. Winston Churchill even called the classic dish a ‘good companion’.
In the 21st century we’re still big fans, with around 10,500 business selling the dish all over the United Kingdom. So it makes sense to include this well-loved favourite in your next big party or event. No more fussy eaters, no more worrying over who will eat which dish and who won’t. Fish and chips have proven, time and time again, to be one of the nation’s favourite meals.
