WATCH: Interview with Chris Sell, British Founder of New York’s Chip Shop
Anglophenia, Mind the Gap’s mother blog, has been zipping around New York City, interviewing British chefs who have achieved culinary stardom in the the most competitive city on the planet.
Recently, they chatted with Chris Sell, who is co-owner (alongside wife Vicki) of Brooklyn’s Park Slope Chip Shop. Founded in 2001, it has become renowned for its piping hot fish ‘n’ chips and, yes, fried Twinkies. (The venture quickly proved so successful with locals that he opened a second location, the Atlantic Chip Shop, in Brooklyn Heights.)
How did Chris make good on his vision to bring authentic British pub food to the States? Watch the interview.
