Fish and chips

It’s the meal that fuelled the industrial revolution and helped Britain win both world wars - Ever Wondered explores the history of fish ‘n chips. Just who put fish with chips in the first place? How did Harry Ramsden turn a humble working class dish into a multi-million pound business? And how did a British inventor make sure chipped potatoes would never again go soggy and black before frying?

In the kitchen, Alan Coxon whips up his own batter recipe for homemade fish ‘n’ chips and Kathy Sykes explains why size really does matter if you want to create the perfect chip.
