2010 marks the 150th anniversary of Fish and Chip Shops in the U.K. To mark this event the National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF), in conjunction with our partners in the industry, are planning a year of promotional activities. The first shops to sell Fish and Chips opened in 1860, one in London, the other in Lancashire. Each of the ingredients had existed separately for some time prior but got together in 1860 to make the perfect partnership.
Great Britain is famous for its simple yet delicious use of North Sea fish, especially cod, haddock, saithe, sole and plaice. The meal, which originated as a result of the industrial revolution, consists of battered, deep-fried fish and sliced deep-fried potatoes. The meal has gained a strong urban following that continues to present day, with British style "chip shops" being famous not only in the United Kingdom but around the world.
