Enjoy An Authentic Chippy Tea With Young's


Young's Chip Shop Range

Ruth Langsford, Young's development chef Serge Nollent and a group of UK food bloggers have teamed up this summer to showcase the versatility and authenticity of the Young's Chip Shop range, just in time for the busy school holidays. We'll show you just how easy it is to create a fish and chip supper at home, not only saving you money but allowing you to make healthier choices for you and your family.


Young's Cod Fillets


Young's Chip Shop Cod Fillets have a unique crisp, bubbly batter allowing you to recreate the authentic taste of the chippy in your own kitchen. The cod fillets are made from 100% responsibly sourced white flaky cod and at only 243 calories per fillet are a lot healthier than their takeaway counterparts.

A BIT ABOUT YOUNG'S

Young’s traces its roots back to 1805, when it was founded by Elizabeth Young and her family who were watermen and fishermen on the Thames at Greenwich. The company has been in continuous growth since that time and undergone a number of changes of ownership, although the Young’s family remained involved until the late 1980s.

Young’s started as a whitebait business, then later became famous for its potted shrimp, sold in distinctive blue pottery jars. It was responsible for a number of notable seafood firsts, including the invention of scampi in 1946 and the marketing of the very first frozen prawns.

Today, Young’s continues to build on its heritage and experience – and as the UK’s biggest specialist seafood brand leading the market with exciting new ideas to help people enjoy fish twice a week.

Sugar Free Cherry Clafoutis with Splenda


Cherry Clafoutis

This gorgeous silky classic French baked dessert is traditionally made with black cherries and arranged in a buttered dish with a thick flan like batter. The bonus of my version is that it's sugar free and uses Splenda, a low calorie alternative instead, making it healthier for you.

Splenda Sugar Alternative is a low calorie table top sugar alternative made with sucralose. It's available in tablet form as Splenda Sweet Mini's ideal for drinks and also a granulated form which can be used spoon for spoon just like sugar - and that's the one I used in this Cherry Clafoutis. Splenda is 10 times lighter than normal sugar so you only need to use a tenth of the sugar quanity when following your favourite recipes.

Cherry Clafoutis

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE CLAFOUTIS

  • Use other fruit like raspberries and blackberries instead of cherries.
  • If you are using ordinary sugar and not Splenda, use 100g of caster sugar in the batter and dust with icing sugar when it is out of the oven.
  • Eat warm with fresh cream.
