With a sprinkle of salt and a dash of vinegar in the chip shop, or steaming hot from the oven, chips are a traditional British staple.
To mark Chip Week from February 18-24, we have delicious recipes from celebrity chefs Gordon Ramsay and Martha Stewart to rustle up your own homecooked chips during the week.
Bursting with flavour, and healthy – Gordon's chips are oven roasted and use minimal oil – go for traditional delights with Gordon Ramsay's chunky chips.
Or opt for Martha's America twist with thin, evenly sliced and crunchy beets with Martha Stewart's Beet chips.
For making super-speedy chips at home try the Tefal Actifry. The kitchen gadget essentially functions as a deep fat fryer – without the deep fat. Using as little as one spoonful of oil, it produces crunchy, healthy chips in a matter of minutes. All ActiFry models are available nationwide and have an RRP of £199.99.
With chippies and restaurants across the country running events, offers and activities this week, enjoy one of Britain's favourite treats on the run. Find out more at chips.lovepotatoes.co.uk.
