It’s National Fish & Chips Day in the UK. Conveniently on a Fry-day. Time to get a nice bit of haddock in batter with a potion of chips and a dollop of gravy if you’re Northern. The rest of us will go with vinegar and a splosh of tartre sauce.
Victoria Wood’s At The Chippy song is a joyful celebration of a British institution, although it seems that we now eat fish and chips half as often as we did in 1974. Perhaps that is because it no longer gets served wrapped in newspaper?
