Curry Sauce? Gravy? Just salt and vinegar? All of life's biggest questions are back once again in 2020 as National Fish and Chip Day returns for September 4th, celebrating a national classic and raising awareness of several issues.
After a successful debut year, the day is back, and perhaps at a critical time as many businesses seek to encourage diners to return during these post-lockdown times. As well as reminding us all of the joys that a bag of chips and freshly fried battered fish can bring, the day also works to increase awareness of the fish industry which it relies upon, specifically the economic and ecological challenges.
Additionally, coming in the wake of a period which has seen much isolation for the nation's elderly population, National Fish and Chip day is an opportunity to visit some familiar faces who may have had to shield during the initial phase of lockdown, sharing in the satisfaction of a teatime treat.
As the official organisation page says: "Let's make National Fish and Chip Day 2020 the best yet as we bring together everyone involved in creating this iconic British dish; from Fish & Chip shops, pub chains, restaurants, retailers, to the fishermen and farmers who provide the sustainable and natural ingredients needed to create this family favourite. In the meantime, stay safe."
