FISH and CHIPS


Hi, there!,

Have you ever eaten FISH'n'CHIPS in Ireland or United Kingdom?

Fish and Chips is a popular relatively inexpensive British dish. It was originated in UK at the middle of 19th century, when British started cooking French fries, influenced by French, as well as fried fish or "pescaito frito" introduced by Portuguese a long time ago. This simple dish became very trendy among working classes.

"Fish and chips" consists of plaice or cod fried in batter and served hot with fried, chipped potatoes. The dish is sold in special shops (Fish and Chip shops, commonly called Chippy or Chipper) either to be taken away, wrapped in paper, or you can eat them in the shop. Some young people buy the chips alone to be eaten as a cheap filling snack.

If you travel to London, don't forget to eat typical Fish and Chips! Nevertheless, you can't compare this dish with the Spanish fish fried with olive oil, they are traditional dishes, but quite different.

I hope you'll enjoy this post, you can tell it to your students :-)
