Mat Arnfield has been flipping fish and chopping potatoes since he was a kid in his father's chip shop in Northern England. Today he fries up his critically acclaimed Fish and Chips at A Salt And Battery in New York City, and customers are utterly hooked on his special recipe. Mat thinks Food Network has asked him to show off his culinary skills for a hungry crowd at Chelsea Brewing Company. But just as the beers are poured and the fish get frying, Bobby Flay appears and challenges Mat to a surprise Fish and Chips Throwdown! Can Bobby's recipe compete against Mat's time-honored tradition. It's sink or swim, as Yanks and Brits alike judge this ultimate battle for the batter, and a challenge for the chip.
