Food for Thought is back with chips and haggis

Written by on 23rd January 2013

It’s been a while but this is the first proper Food for Thought of 2013. To start the year off I spoke to Burton Road Chippy about being a finalist for the best fish and chip shop in the country. Also I found out more about how Burns Night is traditionally celebrated, as well as why the Scottish day is being celebrated here in Lincoln.

You can listen to this week’s podcast below.


The excitement is building for Burton Road Chippy as this week they will find out, at an awards ceremony in London, if they are the best Independent Takeaway Fish and Chip Shop in the country. Last week I chatted to the owner, Des Anastasiou, to find out how they are preparing and what winning would mean to them.

To get to the finals Burton Road Chippy had to compete in regionals, so they are already the winners of the East of England Fish and Chip Shop awards. Getting this far means everything about their restaurant, as well as their chips, has been judged as Des explains to me.

Although the day is commonly celebrated in Scotland, Bishop Grosseteste are also honouring the day. I spoke to their Vice Chancellor Professor Muriel Robinson to find out why.


If you want to listen to the show in full then listen to Siren 107.3FM on Wednesdays at 2pm. If you have any suggestions of great local cafes and restaurants that should be part of Food for Thought then just email me or tweet the station using @sirenfm.
