A week of meeting staff, cleaning, frying, touching up, washing down, panicking and cheering is coming to an end… We have also done some really rather good frying!
This fish and chips industry still feels like a good one. Folk are so helpful – from other friers, food and equipment suppliers and retired friers. All have some wisdom they are happy – delighted! – to share.
As well as learning from Dan and Dean at the Angel Lane Chippie we have had the benefit of working a couple of shifts at the Townhead Chippy under the tutelage of Huw and Julie Gryffydd – thank you! This week we have had lessons at our own premises from Jeff who has owned a number of fish and chips shops over the years and now specilaises in the filters – vital to keep the oil in perfect condition.
Yesterday we worked with Nigel Hodgson from yet another award-winning chip shop – Hodgsons, in Lancaster. We are working so hard to get good fish and chips in Shap!
