Did you know that we would need the area of 19,500 football pitches to grow all the spuds required for Brits to eat their chips every year? We all love chips!
This week is simply a celebration of chips! Which condiment do you like with your chips - mayo, ketchup, brown sauce or salt and vinegar? There are some great recipes you can try out - some are just for fun and tastiness and others are a more healthy option! Visit the official website at: http://www.chips.lovepotatoes.co.uk/ to find recipes and facts on why chips smell so good.
When Charles Dickens was around, Britain had fried fish warehouses - shops that sold fish and bread. A few decades on and we discovered how delicious it was to add chips - and our fish and chip shops were born!
According to rumour, instead of canapes and fancy food at their weddings - the likes of Steven Gerrard and Alex Curran, Wayne Rooney and Coleen Mcloughlin have all requested potato chips as part of their big days.
If they can enjoy them, why can't we? British fish and chip shops serve over 247 million portions of fish and chip meals each year so make sure you enjoy somethis week!!
