The Origins and History of Fish and Chips

The Origins and History of Fish and Chips

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 28th Jun 2018

Professor Panikos Panayi explores the history of this quintessential British dish.

Sprinkled with salt and vinegar, fish and chips were the country’s original fast food. Fried fish was first introduced and sold by East End Jews, while chips may have first taken off in Lancashire and Yorkshire.

By the twentieth century, when the dish reached the seaside, a variety of migrant communities such as Italians and Greek Cypriots were playing a leading role in the fish and chip trade. This lecture unwraps the history of the UK’s most popular takeaway, a story that brings up complicated issues of class and identity.

Panikos Panayi is Professor of European History at De Montfort University. His research focuses on the history of food and immigration.

Cost: £8
