To celebrate Chip Week 2014, renowned food artist Prudence Staite has recreated six British iconic landmarks, including the White ‘Chips’ of Dover.
Other than eating a portion of chips looking over the White Cliffs of Dover, the two have never been combined, until now.
The White ‘Chips’ of Dover masterpiece required 70 chips and took four hours to build.
Other iconic landmarks recreated include the Angel of the North, Big Ben, the Loch Ness Monster, Stonehenge and the London Eye.
Prudence Staite and her team spent six months planning, testing and carefully constructing each sculpture.
In total, 10kg of both chip shop chips and oven chips were used, carefully selecting the perfect combination for each sculpture.
Prudence said: “We had so much fun with this project, from the very first sketches to the technical challenges around how the sculptures would hold together.
“Iconic landmarks in Britain are so important to our cultural history and eating chips is such a British tradition, it felt natural to combine the two and create some history of our own.
"It did leave us a little hungry though!”
"We always enjoy the creativity and ingenuity that Chip Week tends to inspire, and Prudence has certainly taken it to a whole new level!”
