A Yorkshire chippy well known for its food cooked in beef dripping is redesigning its kitchen in order to cater for vegetarians and vegans.
Bizzie Lizzie’s in Skipton will close its Swadford Street restaurant for 10 days on Sunday 6th January for a refurbishment which will allow room for a brand new 9 pan Kiremko frying range as well as a stand-alone fryer dedicated to sunflower oil.
The standalone fryer will feature two baskets using Flavoil 100% high oleic sunflower oil. This is considered to be one of the healthiest frying oils available because it is rich in antioxidants and very resistant to breakdown at high temperatures. One basket on the new fryer will be dedicated to chips and the other to gluten free fish, which means that vegans and vegetarians can enjoy a portion of chips together with a variety of other vegetarian dishes.
Bizzie Lizzie’s marketing director Katie Davies explains the reason for the new frying range: “To make sure that customers keep coming back for more, we always listen to their feedback. Over the last few years there has been a growing number of requests for us to supply a vegetarian and vegan alternative to beef dripping. To install a new sunflower oil standalone fryer required a complete redesign of the kitchen. So, I am delighted that we have been able to make this investment at Swadford Street to enable vegetarians and vegans to feel welcome.”
Bizzie Lizzie’s Swadford Street Restaurant will reopen on Wednesday 16th January. At the same time the restaurant will be refurbished to give it a fresh look so that customers can enjoy their fish and chips cooked either in sunflower oil or beef dripping in comfort.
