In this engaging episode, we reconnect with John Molnar, the force behind The Cod's Scallops. With outlets spread across Nottingham and an outpost in Harborne, Birmingham, John shares his journey since our last conversation in episode 45 in February 2020, just after The Cod's Scallops was crowned Fish & Chip Shop of the Year.

John reflects on the significant impact of the award and discusses the unique position of being the last winner under the Seafish banner, a title extended due to unforeseen circumstances. He also touches upon the potential of entering the new NFFF fish & chip awards.
