I usually go skillet, I've found that you need a great BBQ setup to beat cast iron, and then only because your typical household stovetop heating elements are a limiting factor.

If you're able to use a stove that's topped with a 1 inch slab of iron as its heating surface, then the pan wins bigly.

Fish 'n' chips was a Jewish concoction originally, and today this 'English traditional dish' seem to be in the safe hands of Cypriots in the majority. We are blessed in having two award winning Chippys in our nearest town of Pershore, well worth the round trip of 12 miles for cod, chips and mushy peas!

Served on newspaper?


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

I'm lucky that there is one good example of a British fish & chip shop in Prague, actually a lot better than some of the ones back in the UK smile it's a nice treat every now & then. It even does haggis & chips, which as a Scot I hugely appreciate smile

Britain isn't really known for its fine cuisine, but there are a few dishes I regard very highly:
Fish & chips
Roast dinner
Full English breakfast

It's been unlawful to serve fish & chips directly into newspaper for many years now, however the more thoughtful establishments will cover a clean wrapped meal in newspaper as a sort of nostalgia thing smile

No longer served on newspaper KK,health and safety.

My 2 local fish and chip shops are only average. I boycotted the one over poor quality at one point but it's a 2 minute walk from where I live so I relented for convenience.

I would gladly travel the 15 miles to Pershore once in a while though to get a really good meal. Can you name the chippies BD-123?

Thanks guys. Didn't think it still was for reasons you mentioned.

Newlands at 21a Newlands, Pershore WR10 1BW
Was my primary choice but often very busy but:
Riverside at 53 High St, Pershore WR10 1EU
since refurb is coming up to a similar high standard.

Do you recall Honky Fletcher's in Lowesmoor Chucky? I was installing signage for the new owners who took it over when Honky retired and watched in horror as they slid out the old fryers which came out unexpectedly easily due to the six inch layer of grease underneath.

I did frequent Honky Fletchers. This must have been in the late 60's early 70's. I used to eat in with mates of mine.

It was probably one of the last times I drank Dandelion and Burdock,you don't seem to see it nowadays.

Traditional British cuisine is underrated IMO, most of it suffers from not looking all that appealing, but it tastes fine.

Speaking of British cuisine. My brother and co-workers went to UK one time years ago on business and one of his colleague ordered the Yorkshire pudding thinking it was a dessert after they just finish off a big supper.

The waitress double checked and asked him is that really what you want and he said yes.

Everyone at the table knew what it was except his colleague and no one told the guy and they kept telling the waitress, he is a big eater, go ahead and bring it

There is a TV program here called Royal Recipes on the TVO channel (PBS). Not all the food is 'fancy'.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

For me that seems to be a waste.

It's Masterchef The Professionals finals week.

I don't eat anything that stares back at me.

Oh I don't know,I'm quite fond of Whitebait.

That does look quite gross though.

To each their own of course but I just can't grasp the entertainment value of cooking shows. I know those are both very popular in both the UK and the US.

Then again I also don't grasp the entertainment value of reality shows, talent shows, home improvement shows, etc.

Rich people eat the strangest food.

Duck liver, oyster emulsion, celeriac (whatever that is).

Just give me a nice 85/15 burger or a ribeye/NY strip/T-bone steak and a loaded baked potato.

I don't want fancy.

I want food that fills me up.

That's the problem with this rich people fancy food:

they spent $200, $300, $500 on a 7-10 course meal featuring dishes with a one ounce peace of meat/seafood decorated with flowers and sauces and still come away hungry.
