Everyone loves great chips
We were inspired by a trip to Utrecht where we tasted the most amazing organic chips & sauces.
After many portions of heaven we knew we had to share the love and bring proper chips back home.
We hand CHIP fresh organic potatoes in front of you, twice fry them,
FLIP them in salt, then serve in a very cool cone for you to DIP them in some gorgeous sauces.
Forget your average chippy, these are something else.

Christmas at The Forum 2008
Santa arrived at The Forum on his magnificent sleigh on Thursday 13th November, pulled by real reindeers! Riding on the sleigh with Santa was local girl Kasia Nowakowsa (10 yrs) who lives in Great Boughton, Chester and is a pupil at St Werburghs and St Columbas School in Hoole.
Kasia won her fantastic prize in a Christmas Drawing competition staged by The Forum in conjunction with Chester's Dee 106.3 Radio Station. Kasia's sister Nadzicja (4 years) accompanied her on the Santa's Sleigh.
As well as bringing Santa to The Forum, Kasia assisted the Lord Mayor of Chester to switch on Chester's Christmas Lights in a special ceremony. Some surprise guests were also on hand in The Forum to welcome everyone on the night.
After installing Santa in his Grotto, from which the proceeds will go to local charities (see list below), Kasia, her two sisters and her Mum and Dad were treated to a family tea at The Forum's McDonalds Restaurant.
The Forum is open on Thursday evenings for Late Night Shopping until 8 pm through to Christmas. Happy Christmas Shopping everyone! Remember, its Free from Three to park in Princess Street Car Park (right underneath The Forum).
