Friday 1st June will see people across the country celebrating their love of fish and chips as they come together on National Fish & Chip Day!
Fish and chip lovers in care homes will be joining the rest of the UK to celebrate again with the iconic National dish of Fish & Chips with Mushy Peas.
In 2017, National Fish & Chip Day was one of the biggest awareness days of the year in the UK so don’t miss your chance to be part of it!
At Bright Copper Kettles “We all agree nothing can beat a portion of steaming fresh white fish fried in hot, crispy batter, served with a pile of lip-smacking chips – the only debate is whether you top it with salt, vinegar, sauce, mushy peas or a pickled egg!
“So whip out your Union Jacks again to celebrate British fish and chips and join in with National Fish & Chip Day on Friday 1st June by enjoying a good old-fashioned Friday night fish supper.
National Fish & Chip Day is about giving fish and chips the recognition it deserves and helping to secure its position as the nation’s favourite dish. The event, which takes place on the first Friday in June every year, already has the backing of key players in the industry.
The national event is once again being championed by trade organisation, The National Edible Oil Distributors’ Association, who represent packers and distributors of oils and fats in the UK. Incoming NEODA President, Ryan Baker, comments, “National Fish & Chip Day has become more popular each year and in 2018 we want it to be even bigger! It’s a celebration of the stars who work hard to bring Brits their favourite traditional takeaway. We want to bring the whole industry together to celebrate and showcase the great British institution that is Fish and Chips.”
The event is a great addition to your nutrition and hydration program as your residents will be keen to celebrate this great British dish. The unmistakable smell of fried fish and vinegar bringing back memories and stimulating the senses to promote the desire to eat. The addition of salt will encourage drinking fluids too. (just keep an eye out for those who may pour out too much salt! – substitute for an empty pot if they are likely to keep adding more throughout the meal)
“To help build support in anticipation for the event, we are urging people to start tweeting with the hashtag #NationalFishandChipDay.”
