This is the origin story of the humble fish & chip shop. Myf speaks with Veronica Papacosta, who has three generations of seafood history to draw on to tell us about the past, present and future of fish & chips in Australia. We also hear from Elizabeth Chong, the celebrity chef who speaks of how intersecting migrant cultures and an entrepreneurial spirit led to the birth of a unique Australian culinary treat. "A trip to the beach comes with many advantages. A swim, a lie on the sand, and at the end of the day, the prize is usually a warm bundle of mostly yellow fried food wrapped in butcher’s paper handed gingerly over a counter of a fish and chip shop."
This is a story about the Big Things, the highway-side attractions like the Big Banana and the Big Prawn, and some Bigger Things, the silo murals that line the highways of regional Victoria. This is also the story of how these monuments speak of a towns industry and identity.
