National Federation of Fish Friers set us on the right track… and gas connections prove a challenge

Well, after three days of intensive frying training at the hands of various experts from the industry, we have both now produced pretty good fish, chips and mushy peas!

The NFFF runs various course to ensure our national dish is produced professionally.  Although there is bound to be competition between chips shops really close together, the Federation – and the members we have met – believe in working together to keep standards as high as possible across the board so fish and chips stays as one of those “must have” meals – whether it’s once a year, once a week or somewhere in between.  We have enjoyed cod and chips three times in three days…

We had great tutors on the course – three recent winners of the Young Frier of the Year – and three who would have been too old for such a title about 40 years ago! In the picture Raf is sharing his knowledge and enthusiam with Jo.

Back to harsh reality, since we bought the building I have been trying to get the gas reconnected but it is proving immensely challenging and I have been passed from pillar to post and remain unconvinced that British Gas have found their way clear to pointing me in the right direction.
