Food And Chips

Brits love fish and chips. And as such they are the third most popular meal in the UK after London and Birmingham. They are just so typical of a British food shop, as they are full of authentic ingredients that are hard to find anywhere else.

The essential British food is fairly easily available over here. Fish and chips is one of the homegrown dishes which are associated with this tiny island. The fish which is usually used is cod or haddock but the British cook tops this up with any other type of fish they happen to have in their fish and chip shops.

The typical way to have fish and chips is to have the evening local service with a traditional dinner being served at the same time. This means that the dinner must be served at the same time and the fish must be fresh as it is served on the premises. It is quite easy to get fish from the local shops as there are many takeaway options available. The meals are usually served with crusty bread and potatoes and may include some fried fish, although this tends not to be classed as a main course.

Fish and chips is usually served with beer or as a drink with other dishes, including vegetables and a traditional drink called ‘coke’ to wash it down. The beer is served in a small cup and with nostalgic music playing. The dinner known as the main course is often served with more beer, butter and a large bowl of chips. The dinner known as the pudding usually comes with more beer or cider, and depending on what type of fish is being served.

When going to parties, the practice is traditionally to invite people to bring a dish of their choice. This way, everyone can pick and choose what they want to eat and before long, the whole party will have a variety of dishes available. People tend to enjoy eating at parties when they have something different to eat such as chips, so a good variety of chips, junk food, and cold drinks is always popular.

Another big trend for 2011 is the organic food revolution. It is going to cause a big change in the gradual transformation of our farm land from producing food which is chemically enhanced and fat laden, to food which is organic, lean, and healthy.

The culinary revolution is affecting almost every part of our food debate. The dinner debate is now a debate centered around the types of food we eat rather than the types of meals we cook. The meal we serve at the end of the day now depends on the type of diet one has.

However, the huge push towards consuming organic food does not depend solely on health benefits alone. Lifestyle is now a part of it. The idea of not cooking meat and making sure only non fat dairy and eggs are eaten, is now considered part of the solution to finding solutions to the dilemma of climate change.

The Baxter’s effect

The phenomenon of the so called “B Baxter’s effect” is having a positive impact on the debate over genetically modified crops. The demonstration by Baxter’s has had the support of farming organizations across the world.

The supporters of GM crops claim that they are better for the consumer due to minimal processing and less pesticides and herbicides are used. They also claim that they are helping small farmers and communities to be able to produce more natural, healthy crops and can be visualized to help the audience see the importance of this area.

The B Baxter’s model for how GM foods can be introduced into the ecosystem through conventional and organic methods is also growing. The organization believes that once liked foods are shown to have negative effects on the environment, then the supports for GM foods will grow.

For the time being, GM foods are going to be tested in very specific ways. This way, we can expect to see the final decisions being based not only on scientific evidence, but also on models of climate change and how it affects food production. For now, it looks as if GM foods are not yet on the supermarket shelves, but we will sure be seeing them in small quantities soon.
