This is a classic recipe for fish and chips, save for the addition of beer! It makes the batter especially crisp and delicious. Make sure your oil is hot by testing it with a chip first, and take care not to overcrowd the pan.

This is a recipe I borrowed from a friend whose family owned a chain of chip shops on the Northside. The chips are moist and thick, with a soft centre, while the fish is steamed inside a crispy lager-battered coating! Just add malt vinegar and Maldon's Sea Salt, and you are sorted!

This is an exceptional recipe for beer battered fish. You can use cod as stated, but it also is wonderful to use with haddock, pollock, sea bass and orange roughy. The small amount of dill is optional, but really makes for a lovely flavour.

Who said fish and chips was bad for health? Here, I make a wholemeal sourdough batter for the fish and deep-fry the fish and unpeeled chips (dug from the garden) in light olive oil. I serve that with mushy peas from soaked and cooked marrowfat peas and tomato ketchup from tomato puree, garlic and herb vinegar and plain yogurt.
