FIsh and chip suppers go back along way in England, and they will continue to be a large part of our culture for many years to come. even with the outside competition of kebab shops etc.

Our favourite day out is to walk around Whitby Harbour eating freshly cooked fish & chips made with freshly caught Whitbv fish. I can recommend it.

Comment on Fish and chips

I'm Canadian and I love fish and chips. Each time I visit Britain I make a point of spending some money at the best fish and chip shops. Here's some trivia: Canadians have, like the British, traditionally sprinkled vinegar on their chips (or fries, as we usually call them these days when there's no fish in the meal) but our vinegar is the white variety, not malt. I'm sure Canada is the only country in the world where people put white vinegar on chips/fries. However, the practice is diminishing because of American cultural influences. Often one has to ask for the vinegar now, but it's always available.

Fish and Chips is the dish! A National Treasure that has stood the taste of time. It has woven its way into the fabric of society and is the most virtuous and affordable food for the masses of all classes.

A rare treat of flavour and tradition, that is still popular. Not even Churchill dare ration it! Along with Battered Sausage, Fritters (Especially Spam), and of course the ubiquitous Pukka Pie, Fish 'n' Chips are a cultural phenomenon and undoubtedly an ICON.

What is more British than strolling down the road tucking into hot fish and chips from a newspaper with battered scraps sprinkled over the top? If you have been struggling recently to find your identity, stand in a queue for fish and chips and it'll soon come back to you.

Comment on Fish and chips

Fish, chips, and vinegar represent just a few of the staple foods that have been enjoyed by all classes of English society throughout history. Fish and chips are thoroughly rooted in English history because of the influence of the vast and long tradition of fishing in England which is surrounded on all sides by water.
