Fish and Chip Flavoured Ice Cream on the Menu!

Tay FM DJ John Milne has joined forces with Marcos on the Shore in Arbroath to develop a unique local flavoured ice cream.

The drive time presenter asked his listeners to vote for their favourite flavour in a competition to create the TAY-sty treat.

The bizarre winning combination of Blairgowrie Berries and Anstruther Fish and Chips was revealed this week. 

Mike Watson, head chef at Marcos, blended the two together for a bizarre taste of Tayside.

He said:

“Basically we had to do everything from scratch. We made a sauce from the berries and then made an intensive fish stock and a sweet batter. We also fried off some skinny chips and added it all together.”

Three-year-old, Chloe Kelbie from Dundee, was the first person to taste the new creation. 

And the verdict?

“It tastes like fish and chips – tay-sty!”

DJ John is now looking for TAY-sty testers.

He said:

 “We thought that we would get our listeners into the spirit of summer by developing our very own TAY-sty ice cream which will be unique to the area. If Heston Blumenthal can do bacon and egg ice cream we think we can go one better with an ice cream which totally reflects the area.

“We will be out and about across Tayside and Fife with batches of our TAY-sty ice-cream. We are now looking for listeners to register online and we could be at their home or workplace giving them the chance to be one of the first to sample our creation.

The Ice Cream is available on a try-before-you-buy basis at Marcos on The Shore in Arbroath.
