    Bought it from Ebay, £29 delivered was going to buy an LPG barbecue thing but you're talking a couple of hundred quid plus the gas bottle etc.

    We have an Aldi Pizza oven outside too but I'd like a proper brick built one, the Aldi one is okay but we rarely use it.

    The wife bought one of these, must be a model up because it has a tank below that lets you filter the oil once or twice before chucking it out, she/I think it's very good.

    So true. Who is not a sucker for chips? I bought one on the back of this ‘do yer own’ fantasy that has done nothing but take up space on the top of our fridge for three years now.
    With the uptake of mobile phones there’s nothing to stop you getting some proper chips from the Chippy whilst her indoors starts frying the eggs and warming the beans at just the right moment.

    Fish and chips have to be eaten right out of the fryer/chipshop.

    My son's a chef he advises frying chips @ 130 degree c then putting them in the fridge for a few hours then fry them again @ 190 degree c or you can fry them three times ending up with the previous.

    My mother and my mother in law made fantastic chips in a chip pan with a basket.

    Personally I can't stand chip shop chips they're always too soft and the chips are too big.

    Love fish shop fried fish though but it does have to be eaten within minutes of coming out of the fryer, once you get it home it's crap.

    This is an excellent recipe for beer battered fish Chris.

    I've also made the 'homemade tomato sauce' it's okay but wouldn't bother you're better of with HienzKetchup.

    BTW, get decent oil mate, I bought light olive oil which was quite expensive and pish my wife buys 'crisp n dry' which is good IMO my son say's you want a high temp oil like rapeseed or similar.

    We've some really decent fish and chips shops here in Glasgow, the best ones are on the Gallowgate IMO, they've been there for about 100 years and are a bit run down but the fish and chips are amazing, Frankie's is the best but the Val d Oro is good too you just need to watch you don't get stabbed:D

    We have those posh fish and chips shops too, my wife and kids like them but I think they're terrible, all that thrice cooked chips in geese fat nonsense:rolleyes:

    I've had fish and chips on Skye, Portree I think, which were sensational but you can't eat them outside for the seagulls and Anstruther in Fife with queues for miles at lunch time and there's an excellent place at Ardossan harbour.

    Chris don't forget the fresh lemons:D

    I never had decent F&C until I lived near Whitby one winter. Things have improved down south, but it always staggered me that people only had a couple of things to cook and didn’t do it perfectly.

    Your generic supermarket “vegetable oil” is usually rapeseed. Check the label before forking out for boutique stuff

    this.

    I'd love another deep fat fryer but they are such a faff to keep clean. I want to make proper onion bhaji and pakora again.

    Fried potatoes- we don't make chips any more but we do shallow fry in olive oil for crispy chip like things as we've had in Spain.

    The fish and chips shop in Whitby is meant to be excellent one of the best in the UK apparently

    Don't know to be honest I read it in article in The Sunday Times years ago the food critic/columist who died about five years ago raved about it he was married to some high up Tory politician.

    I used to go to Trenchers in Whitby - very very nice indeed. The Magpie was also very good.
