In this episode, our host, Simon Majumdar, examines the history of his favorite dish of all time, Fish & Chips.


It will take him on a journey to the times of the Ancient Greeks, the Romans, the Aztecs, Medieval Europe, the Seven Years War and Dickensian London. He will also bring in some of history’s most well known (Louis XIV, Charles Dickens, Thomas Jefferson and Frederick The Great) and lesser known (Oppian, Jose de Acosta and Mrs. “Granny” Duce) characters. It will be quite a journey for something that used to be sold in yesterday’s newspaper.
