Fish Frier of the year
Amy Grimwood (our Manager) is one of six up-and-coming young friers that has been shortlisted for the Drywite Young Fish Frier of the Year Award at the 2016 National Fish & Chip Awards, organised by Seafish.
To get to this stage in the competition the contestants have taken part in a gruelling judging process with the top 10 contestants participating in a rigorous test day at the National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF) Training School in Leeds, Yorkshire. The 10 shortlisted friers displayed preparation and fish and chip frying techniques as well as undergoing personal skills based tests in front of four separate judging panels.
The top six finalists have now received a mystery judging visit at their respective workplace, combined with another test of their skills and knowledge whilst in their own working environment. This final round of judging will determine the first, second and third winning places of the Drywite Young Fish Frier of the Year which will be announced at the 2016 awards ceremony held at the Lancaster London hotel on 20 January 2016. Fingers Crossed!!
