Chip of the Year
 

It’s hailed as the nation’s favourite takeaway – and to mark National Chip Week from February 17 - 23 we want to know where the best chip in mid-Somerset can be found.

The Central Somerset Gazette would like its readers to nominate their favourite chip provider.

It could be fish and chip shop, takeaway, restaurant pub or burger van.

The central Somerset winner will take part in a fry-off with the best chips in Shepton Mallet, Wells and the Cheddar Valley.

Last year the four finalists were Whitstone’s in Shepton Mallet, R&T’s in Street and Tuckers in Cheddar Gorge and Wells.

The finalists were selected by our readers in the biggest reader generated poll we have ever run – hundreds of readers got passionate about their favourites.

The winner could be a traditional chunky chippy chip, a french fry, gourmet wedge or superb scallop.

Chips might have a reputation for unhealthy eating.

But a portion of takeaway fish and chips contains just 60 per cent of the calories that are found in sweet-and-sour chicken, egg-fried rice and a portion of vegetable spring rolls.

Chicken tikka masala, pilau rice and a plain naan actually has 17 per cent more fat than a portion of fish and chips.

Fish suppers remain the nation’s favourite, outselling Indian food at a rate of two to one.

We would also like to know whether mid-Somerset’s favourite condiment vinegar, ketchup or even mayo?
