History of Fish ‘N’ Chips in Ireland

In 1882, Italian immigrant Giuseppe Cervi came to Dublin to work as a labourer. He bought himself a coal-fired cooker and cart to begin selling Fish ‘n’ Chips outside of pubs in Dublin city. He then opened the very first Fish ‘N’ Chips shop on Great Brunswick Street (now known as Pearse Street). The dish became very popular with Irish people, which encouraged many more Italians to move here and set up Fish ‘N’ Chip shops. By 1909, there were 20 of these shops in Dublin city.

Homemade Fish ‘N’ Chips

As part of our ‘Cooking at Home’ series, Executive Head Chef Richie Wilson along with Ben, Jake and Emily, created the best Fish ’N’ Chips recipe. The Wilsons show how to create this dish along with homemade tartar sauce and ray cheek goujons. It’s definitely the perfect dinner for the whole family if you’re looking for something a little different at home.
