#113519 - 10/14/03 09:10 PM Re: Walking and eating
Loc: Louisville, Kentucky
I thought this had been explained before, though I'd forgotten the exact def. myself:
The buttie bit is easy - it just relates to the bread and butter, although where I came from a buttie would always be a single piece of bread (white sliced!) folded with a filling inside, rather than a sandwich which tends to have two slices piled on top of each other and cut. It is especially important in a chip buttie, otherwise the chips and melted butter ooze out. A large bread roll or barm cake (Manchester) is even better, although for me a chip buttie is now a luxury food reserved for very rare moments of comfort deficit.

a chip butty is what you make at home with your bread and butter ( all meals come with bread and butter, i love bread and butter) folded around the last few chips, usually with gravy wipings. a chip barm is what you get from the chippy, a big, flattish, floury, oven bottom muffin. they cost about 55p, or 85p if you get it in a cone, a cone of paper with the barmcake in, sliced and buttered, with a huge portion of chips piled on top, more than can possibly fit in the barm so you have to eat the hot chips with your fingers until you can fit the rest in the barm which is now all chip-greasy chip-tangy on the inside and crisp on the outside. or there's your chip naan, which is basically a naan bread, with cheddar and coriander (usually, you can have garlic or plain) baked in and then the chips are rolled up in the naan. or you bake the chips inside the actual naan, but there's only a few places that can do that properly, otherwise you end up with a sort of spicy chip pizza, which is minging. it's a classic whichever way you slice it.
god i love chips

generally, food threads/posts get a cold receptions, but dody, anytime you want to write about chips, or any other food you like, post it somewhere on this board.. I loved ready your mini essay on chips and bread!
(Re: bread and dripping- are they still considered a culinary treat in UK? or by you?-- my mother (from ireland) thought anything in the world tasted better when sandwiched between buttered bread- she was right about bananas-- add some black pepper, and letuce, and bananas make a wonderful sandwich(best on whole wheat bread))_________________________
