These 10 up-and-coming young friers will now progress to the next judging round in the competition in which they will receive a skills-based assessment which includes chipping potatoes, making batter and frying fish. They will also undergo a personal interview during a comprehensive judging day at the headquarters of the National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF) Training School in Leeds, West Yorkshire. This stage of judging will whittle down the shortlist to five finalists.   

Drywite Young Fish Frier of the Year Award was developed to encourage the fish and chip industry’s younger generation to nurture and expand their skills to become expert friers and positive role models for the next generation.

The winner will be announced at The National Fish & Chip Awards’ 31st-anniversary ceremony in London on 24th January 2019.
