Fish and Chips

From last week's Time Out:

'Who invented 'Fish and Chips'...
...frying [fish] in batter is a technique that has been used by the Portuguese...probably since the Middle Ages. Some scholars have suggested that the expulsion of Sephardic Jews from Portugal in 1947 may have been the genesis of fish-frying in London's East End, as many of those Sephardic Jews fled to London. The Portuguese took the same technique to Japan where it was refined into the dish we now call tempura

A data da expulsão está errada.Trata-se de 1497.Outra coisa que os Sefarditas também levaram consigo foi o azeite, algo que também influenciou o tão famoso prato.
