Clareview the ‘Plaice’ to Be on National Fish and Chip Day

Do you see what I did there  ? Come on it must have raised a smile..maybe ? I digress…

Well Friday 2nd June was National Fish n Chips day… so can you guess what Clareview did…..yes they had fish n chips which is always a firm favourite with our residents!

Now for some history…fish and chips are a British invention and were introduced in 1860 by Joseph Malin, a Jewish man who opened a fried fish shop in London to sell “fried fish in Jewish fashion”

Harry Ramsdens shop in Guiseley, West Yorkshire entered the Guinness Book of Records in 1952 for selling 10,000 portions of fish & chips in 1 day!

Fish & Chips was one of the few foods not rationed during WWII, this was because Churchill wanted to keep spirits up.

Traditionally served in old newspapers and cooked in lard or beef dripping, these practices have almost stopped and have been replaced with polystyrene cartons and oils to fry in.

Cod & Haddock are the most popular fish used in the United Kingdom, but there are many variations served throughout the world.
