Official – Now frying new potatoes

“It has been a difficult year for potatoes because of the severely wet summer and autumn of 2012.  This meant that the main crop potato wasn’t the best of quality.  We have always bought the best quality that has been available to us. This situation was made worse because of the extremely cold spring when traditionally the planting of the new season potatoes would have commenced.  This was therefore delayed by 4-5 weeks meaning that we have had to stay on main crop potatoes for that much longer than previous years.  We can definately confirm that we are now frying new season Agria which are producing a lovely light golden tasty chip. Thanks to all our customers in appreciation of your understanding through the difficult time of the...

Local chippy sets new standards and passes the taste test

Local chippy sets new standards and passes the taste test Peckish Fish and Chips of Camelford, Cornwall has maintained its place among the UK’s top fish and chip shops  by once again scooping the prestigious Fish and Chip Quality Award.  It is the only shop in Camelford to hold this award. The National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF), the trade body that represents the nation’s fish and chip shops, runs the scheme as a way of raising standards within the fish and chip trade and enhancing the profile of the industry. The scheme is a way of rewarding and promoting shops that provide good quality products and high standards of hygiene, as well as friers who show a high level of competence. To qualify, each shop has to go through an inspection by an NFFF Approved Assessor who assesses the shop’s presentation, hygiene and cleanliness, staff training, equipment, frying and sales skills and most importantly the quality of the cooked product. This award sets the new benchmark for quality within the industry.  It will signal to the consumer that they can buy with confidence where the award is displayed, and it will encourage more outlets to raise their standards. Each Fish and Chip Quality Award is valid for two years and retention is dependent on standards being maintained as validated by NFFF officials and appointed assessors. Peckish has proven that it consistently serves some of the UK’s finest fish and chips.

Potatoes freshly peeled and chipped daily

Recently highlighted on the BBC programme, Alex Polizzi – The fixer, why, if you prepare your chips daily on the premises isnt this part of your marketing strategy…. Rob, Owner of Peckish fish and Chips said this, “Since we began we have always freshly peeled and chipped our potatoes on the premises daily, we dont buy bought in chips, frozen or otherwise. I’d like to think this shows in the quality of the chips we serve. So why have we not put a huge banner up saying this in the past?…i’m not sure is the answer. Watching the TV programme made us think…we’re already doing this, been doing it for years and we dont have anywhere saying we do it….We’ve had a board for ages saying which boat the fish was caught on, what potatoes we actually use – but not they are peeled and chipped here daily, so we’ve now added it to our menu.” You can check out our menu here which now right-fully explains that all our potatoes are freshly peeled and chipped daily on the premises…so thank Alex for the great...
