A History Of Fish and Chips
Separately fish and chips have been eaten for many years; though the potato was not introduced into Europe until the 17th century. However, the fried potato chip (Vlams frites) supposedly first appeared in Belgium, hence the popular modern day term “French fries”. The original pescado frito (deep-fried fish) probably came to England and the Netherlands with the Spanish and Portuguese Jews in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Here in England the dish now known as fish and chips became popular in the middle of the 19th century and the first mention of fried fish was in Charles Dickens famous novel, Oliver Twist which was first published in 1837 and mentioned a “fried fish warehouse”. By the 1850’s street traders were on the streets of London selling fried fish and “shaved” potatoes wrapped in newspapers. Also, in the north of England businesses developed selling deep-fried chipped potatoes.
It is uncertain how and when the two constituents merged into the fish and chip industry as we know it today, but the opening of the first fish and chip shop in London is attributed to Joseph Malin in 1860, whilst the first fish and chip shop outside the capital was opened by John Lees in Mossley, Cheshire, in 1863.
Popularity of the dish rose rapidly and quickly became a staple part of the British diet. Fish and Chips were used to feed the masses during both World Wars, and Lord Woolton, Minister of Food declared that Fish and Chips were among the foods not to be rationed during the Second World War.
Nowadays this country has over 11,000 fish and chip shops serving in excess of 250 million fish and chip suppers each and every year. It still remains Britain’s most-popular take-away meal.
