Ironing Board (Pic)The geniuses at Leeds University have found the precise reason why people worldwide love their fish and chips – it’s the smell, of course.
Naturally, you would think that the aroma of fish and chips would be easy to describe. The smell of salt comes to mind as a simple description. Or the ink from yesterday’s Sun which it’s wrapped in.
But here at BBM, we are praising Dr Graham Clayton (that’s Food Doctor to you) who has discovered that the ‘complex aroma’ that attracts us to fish and chips is a mixture of “butterscotch, cocoa, onion, flowers, cheese and ironing boards.”
Dr. Clayton (who also goes by “Einstein”) hopes that chips will be “treated like wine in the future – with fans turning into buffs as they impress their friends with eloquent descriptions of their favourite fries.”
Finally! A way to impress women that we at BBM are good at!
“Now here, my dear lady, is the 2010 Chicken Salt variety..”
