    Eating your chips without gravy or curry sauce is sacrilege in Yorkshire. While traditionally gravy was the preferred drizzle, curry sauce is also a popular choice. Dry chips are absolutely forbidden.

    Is it just me, or does anyone else only like chips which have been sat a good while? I HATE fresh out of the pan chips.
    You know 'old' chips aren't wasted so taste better :rolleyes:;)
