The biggest food awareness day of the year, National Fish and Chip Day, is back for its 7th year!
On Friday, 27th May 2022, a week before the nation prepares for a special four day Bank Holiday to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, the nation will come together to celebrate another icon, and still our favourite....fish and chips! From the North to the South, the East to the West, we all love the nation's favourite dish, but we all enjoy them in different ways! Some can't eat them without gravy, others think that is an abomination! For others, if it doesn't have mushy peas is it even a fish supper?!
We understand that Her Majesty, who has some of the finest chefs at her disposable throughout her UK residencies, is partial to fish and chips too! She has passed this love of the dish on to her grandchildren too, with William and Kate famously enjoying a portion of steaming hot fish and chips from their favourite shop when they re-visited their University hometown last year.
This year on Friday 27th May 2022, we want to celebrate the differences that make fish and chips (and scraps, batter bits, scrumps, batteries...what do you call the little bits of batter at the bottom of the packet?!) so iconic and will see people across the country coming together on National Fish and Chip Day!
So get the date in your diaries and look out for the best plaices to celebrate!
