Bigger and Batter Fish and Chips at Bournemouth and Poole College

Bigger and Batter Fish and Chips at Bournemouth and Poole College

FE Week challenged the twittersphere to come up with some fishy puns for this fabulous college story. Apprentices at the Dorset college took part in a 24 hour challenge to make the largest portion of fish and chips – ever.

42 pieces of coley, 100 kgs of potatoes and a massive tub of mushy peas went into presenting the gargantuan dish.

The challenge was comissioned by Sky TV’s Monster Munchies, a cookery programme hosted by Matt Dawson where size really does matter.

The story went far and wide and the nation’s favourite meal even made the nation’s favourite newspaper – The Sun! The ‘red topped’ tabloid, famous for its headline gags put FE Week in a ‘punny’ frame of mind, and we challenged loyal twitter followers to come up with a fish-tastic take on the college serving up a mega portion.

And the winner is… Lee Mark Davies (@leemarkdavies). Lee went on, and on… and on with the puns, but our favourite is: “If @FEweek were serious about fish it would cover schools not colleges…”

Lee wins an exclusive FE Week mug!
