The Meal Of the Day today is… Fillet Steak & Triple Cooked Chips and comes to us courtesy of JamesGCookSt!
“About 38 years ago (3 years before I was born) a frozen food company from Canada created a product that would revolutionise tea time in Great Britain forever. From its manufacturing site in Scarborough, McCain frozen foods began to produce the first frozen oven chips. My older brother and sisters told me of the day my dad returned from the supermarket clutching this amazing new culinary invention. From that day forward the chip pan was banished to the bin, so apart from a visit to the local chippy, I would never get to taste a proper deep fried potato.
I know they conjure up visions of greasy chips, oil drenched chicken legs an dare I say it, battered Mars bars but there is so much more to deep fat frying than these gastronomic stereotypes. A scotch egg, some fresh calamari or even a a duck leg bon bon, the possibilities are endless. To break myself in gently I thought the easiest thing to try would be the thing I’d been deprived of all my youth, a proper chip. This had to be the best chip I’d ever tasted so I began to do my research.”
