Food of the Cods: How Fish and Chips Made Britain tells the story of every town and city in Britain where the air is tangy with vinegar and the scent of frying. Daniel Gray followed this lure to ponder the magic of chippies and the delights they have sprinkled among us for the last 150 years as he investigates the social – and sociable – history of fish and chips.
Travelling to chippies from Dundee to Devon via South Shields, Oldham, Bradford, Bethnal Green, the Rhondda Valley and more – Daniel explores our fish-and-chip nation to show how chippies have helped emancipate women, promote equality for immigrants and shape local and national identity.
