Award-Winning Devon Chippy, Kingfisher, debuts to 1 million us TV viewers
Craig Maw & Nikki Mutton, owners of award-winning Kingfisher Fish & Chips in Plympton, made their debut on US TV to around 1 million viewers on Saturday 14thJuly as the stars of a top celebrity cookery show.
Back in December 2017, the duo was invited by American celebrity chef Ming Tsai to appear on his hugely popular show,Simply Ming. The episode was one of three specials sponsored by the Norwegian Seafood Council, each featuring a chef demonstrating their use of seafood from Norway.
UK viewers can catch the episode onChef Ming’s site https://www.ming.com/craig-maw-nikki-mutton and download the recipes cooked on the show. Viewers can follow Craig & Nikki showing Chef Ming the local area including a trip to the famous Brixham Fish Market where he chooses from a huge array of fresh fish. They then head back to Kingfisher for a behind the scenes look at the award-winning shop. The chefs then cook together, Ming creating a hake and monkfish cheek dish and Craig doing what he does best, serving up a delicious plate of cod and haddock and chips.
Craig Maw comments on the experience, "We’ve had so many amazing experiences in our quest to promote fish and chips but this has got to be up there with the best! Filming with Chef Ming was a blast! We had a great time chatting about our shared love of fish and showing him the local sights.
It’s bizarre to think of us, a small chippy in Devon, beaming into the living rooms of so many homes in the US. But we hope our passion for top quality ingredients comes across and that we can encourage viewers to choose MSC certified sustainable Norwegian seafood because it really is some of the best there is. And if any US viewers are inspired to hop over the pond and try some good old fashioned fish and chips, Devon-style, we’ll be very pleased to welcome them!”
Chef Ming added,"I had so much fun cooking up fish and chips with Craig and Nikki. Touring the Brixham Fish Market in action was incredible. Craig and Nikki truly understand the necessity to use quality ingredients for a great product. Their fish and chips are spot on and their tartar sauce is so tasty!”
Kingfisher was named the UK’s No 1 Fish & Chip Takeaway at the National Fish & Chip Awards 2017 and is known for having the ‘most sustainable seafood menu in the world’. It holds the National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF) quality award, is one of just two chippies to be awarded the maximum 3 star rating from the Sustainable Restaurant Association and won the SRA’s Source Fish Responsibly award at the Food Made Good Awards, 2017.
