Today’s newspaper is tomorrow’s fish and chips wrapper,” people said it in the second half of the nineteenth century. Why? Because many years ago sellers packed fish and chips in newspaper to keep them warm. This does not happen any more, for health reasons, but fish and chips is still Britain’s most favourite fast food.
Fish and chips appeared in the streets of London and other cities in the 1850s, and the first shops to sell them — in the 1860s. The most popular kind of fish is cod1 but other kinds of white fish are also possible. They cook fish in hot fat2 and eat it with chips on which people put salt or tomato sauce. Some people eat bread and butter with their fish and chips.
Fish and chips is very popular with holidaymakers at the seaside, even if the weather is so cold that they have to eat them sitting in their cars! Sometimes people choose fish and chips at the weekend as a change from cooking at home.
A favourite snack (quick food between meals) in Britain is the baked potato, or “potato in its jacket”, which is a potato cooked with the skin left on it.“Potatoes in the jackets” have butter, cheese or beans on top. You can buy many other kinds of hot fast food today, for example burgers3 and fried chicken from the USA, pizza from Italy, and kebabs from the Middle East. You may choose either to “eat in” or “take away”.
Sandwiches (either bought or home-made) make a quick lunch and are also very popular. It is easy to take them to school or work. The word “sandwich” comes from a man John Montagu. He was the fourth Earl4 of Sandwich and lived in the eighteenth century in the English town of Sandwich. He liked to play games at the table for a long time without stopping for a meal. So his cook put some beef5 between two pieces of bread — and made the first sandwich.
