The Jewish Chronicle - - DIARY -

JEWISH cui­sine was the catch of the day on Tues­day, as the BBC aired its first help­ing of Best of Bri­tish Take­away and charted the legacy of one of our most revered dishes — fish and chips.

A com­bi­na­tion of fried fish sold on street stalls by Jewish im­mi­grants with the pro­lif­er­a­tion of deep-fried chips among busy in­dus­trial work­ers sent the pair­ing — and our lo­cal chippy — straight into the na­tion’s hearts.

Of course, we’ve al­ways known about this cul­tural legacy, but it is good to see it pro­claimed to the masses. Bat­ter late than never.
