Remember Fish and Chips on Fridays? That’s how we knew what day of the week it was, by the greasy bits of flake wrapped up in old newspaper. (We never minded the print dye running into the batter, it gave the potato cake an extra zing.)
You just can’t get fatty food like that anymore, all these young people want nothing but low fat, no salt, no sugar, biodynamic batter and organic cold pressed oil for totally taste-free flake.
Constance Brown, 98, has been frying fish and chips for 80 years in her little corner fish and chip shop. She’s been eating them too. “That’s all I eat. I don’t eat any vegetables at all.”, she says. “So I’m living proof you can eat nothing but fish and chips and still be healthy.”
You can’t tell me that Connie has been tucking away this new-fangled low fat fish since the war.
