Last Friday saw people across the country celebrating their love of fish with potato chips as they came together on National Fish & Chip Day.
Fish fans at Queen’s College celebrated a week later as the official day fell in the school holidays. We marked the occasion asking pupils to come together and celebrate Britain’s best-loved fast food by tucking into a portion of fish and chips and by having our very own fresh local fish counter in the dining hall with some wonderful fish caught by our very own pupil, Max in Year 10.
Max is in the England Youth Fly Fishing Team, and is training at the moment ready for the International finals again this summer.
Our Executive Chef, Jordan Bradley said: “We all agree nothing can beat a portion of steaming fresh white fish. The only debate is whether you top it with vinegar, sauce, mushy peas or an egg’.
“At least two portions of fish a week are recommended for a healthy balanced diet (including one oily fish). We are proud that all the fish and seafood served at Queen’s College and used in teaching our pupils is fully traceable to the original source fishery or aquaculture source and uses the ratings provided in the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) Good Fish Guide”, said Mr Mann, Head of Faculty of Art, Design, and Food, “It is so important that responsible sustainable food sourcing results in fish populations remaining healthy, with minimal impacts on the environment, ensuring supplies are safeguarded for future generations”.
