FISH SUPPERS & CHAMPION CHIPS!

FISH FRYER Romano Petrucci is hoping his family's unique fish supper recipe can land him a place in the final of a champion chipper award.

The charismatic proprietor of Stranraer's Central Cafe has progressed to the second stage of the British Fish and Chip Shop of the Year awards.

And while he acknowledges he has little chance of hooking the prize for Britain's best supper, Romano is keen that his staff gain the recognition he says they deserve by reaching the final in London.

The 37-year-old, whose family have owned the cafe since they moved into Stranraer 43 years ago, says it is the traditional recipe which makes his haddock and chips a favourite.

And like all good chefs, he is unwilling to share the secret.

" We pride ourselves on our fish and chips" he said.

"And it would be nice to get some recognition for that.

"Fish and chips is still a favourite in Britain and in Stranraer I suppose we are a bit out of the road and thankfully a little bit set in our ways, so it is still a best seller".

Indeed Romano estimates that he sells 2000 fish suppers a week from the Central Cafe.
