Chippy creates edible fish and chips bouquet



A Cheltenham chippy has created a bouquet made entirely from fish and chips.


Simpson Fish and Chips has put together the romantic treat specifically for Valentine’s Day and it is believed to be the world’s first entirely edible fish and chips bouquet.

Designed to be shared, the arrangement consists of a dozen potato roses and accompanying foliage fish goujons, hand-tied and presented beautifully in traditional newspaper.

The £15 bouquet will be available to purchase for one day only on Wednesday 14th February.

The foodie arrangement is the work of development chef and founder of Simpsons Fish and Chips, Bonny Ritchie, who says: “Everyone knows that the real way to a person’s heart is through their stomach, so we’ve put a little twist on the traditional bouquet of a dozen red roses this year by making them entirely edible. What better way to reel in your Valentine than with this tasty treat?”
