Chip shops bid for glory
TWO fish and chip shops are vying to be named the best in the North-East.
The Quayside in Whitby and Oceans in North Shields have been named finalists in the Independent Takeaway Fish and Chip Shop of the Year at the 2014 National Fish and Chip Awards, organised by Seafish.
The two shops will now be assessed by an industry judge, who will make an unannounced shop visit to conduct a detailed inspection of the premises and practices, including tasting the fish and chips.
The winning business will be announced in early October and go through to the national finals in January. There, they will compete with ten other chip shops in the final heat.
The overall winner will be announced at a ceremony in London on January 22 next year, hosted by Michelin-starred chef and TV personality Jean Christophe Novelli.
