Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
It has to be chip shop chips. And they have to be dripping with vinegar. And very salty. It is not acceptable to include ketchup in a chip butty in m'humble. And the butty is made of a whole slice of thickly-buttered bread, folded in half with the chips inside, never cut with a knife. I deeply regret the modern practice of cooking chips in sunflower oil. It must be beef dripping or lard. I know about these things. My dear old mum had a chippy in Radcliffe for over ten years when I were a lad. Fish and chips were 11d in those days. I used to bash the spuds for her in the chippy back room for 7s 6d a week.
