A festive chip shop owner has unveiled a special fried Christmas dinner – in AUGUST.
Andrew Marshall, 36, serves a poultry leg, battered sprouts, carrots, pigs-in-blankets and stuffing – all battered.
The reason I came up with the idea is because my staff say I am a Scrooge when it comes to Christmas so I thought why not come up with something different?
There’s also a gravy bomb and a mince pie to finish it off – which are also fried.
The festive takeaway totals an artery-clogging 1,100 calories but is relatively light on the wallet at just £9.95.
Andrew has unveiled the treat ahead of Christmas 2019.
Andrew, who runs Marshall’s Fish Bar in Collumpton, Devon said: “The reason I came up with the idea is because my staff say I am a Scrooge when it comes to Christmas so I thought why not come up with something different?
“I started with just the battered Brussels sprouts, then the pigs in blankets, and then I thought why not serve an entire Christmas dinner.”
“The battered Christmas dinner will start with a fried chicken leg, battered sprouts, carrots and pigs in blankets,” he added.
“We will then take an ice cube of gravy, surround it in mash potato, cover it in breadcrumbs and then fry it.
“We will also either deep fry the stuffing or cover it in batter and fry it. And for dessert we will either try battered Christmas pudding or mince pies.”
Marshall’s Fish Bar is launching the battered Christmas dinner on December 2.
