Love England – Love fish and chips

21st April 2008 Print
St George's Day, Wednesday April 23rd, is an excuse to celebrate all things English and to mark the occasion Young’s Seafood asked the nation which dish they would most like to be tucking into to celebrate their Englishness.

39% of survey respondents* said that Fish and Chips is the dish that most epitomises English Cuisine, beating the other favourites such as bangers and mash and curry hands down as the most English weekday meal.

41% of Londoners chose fish and chips as their favourite English dish while only 31% in Newcastle believe that they are a truly English meal. Other fish fanatic cities include Manchester with 40%, and Birmingham with 39% of respondents opting for a fish supper. For once the North/South divide was not in evidence with 70% of Northerners opting for fish and chips and 72% of Southerners.

Curry, once hailed as the nation’s favourite dish seems to have fallen out of favour as only 4% of Londoners chose curry as a great English dish, while no one in the Newcastle would even think of having a curry on St George’s Day!

The good news for those who love fish and chips is that this St George’s Day, they can feel better about tucking into them as Young’s Chip Shop Omega 3 range is a natural source of Omega 3 and as it is made with a blend rich in sunflower oil, has less than 5% saturated fat - Great for families everywhere.

For a great English experience this St George’s Day you could always don your tweeds and Wellington boots and hop on board a red double decker bus for tea with the queen, or you could just pop a large fillet from Chip Shop in the oven and celebrate being English the tasty way.
