A cheeky US chef has poked fun at classic British dishes by turning them inside out to create meals including ‘Chish and Fips’, ‘Mangers and Bash’ and a host of others.
Self-taught chef Anthony Calabro, 27, from New Jersey, has taken to social media with a short series of British-inspired inside-out dishes.
The British classics turned on their head are Chish and Fips and Mangers and Bash, and Rausage Solls made with sausage meat rolled around pastry like a beef Wellington and then baked in the oven.
His Teans on Boast uses croutons for beans and a bread mixture made from beans in a can.
Former healthcare worker Anthony was inspired to create the wacky dishes after initially getting a comment from a Brit complaining about his US-styled food.
Self-taught chef Anthony Calabro, 27, from New Jersey, puts his own twist on British dishes, such as Mangers and Bash – which involves batter stuffed into a sausage casing and then boiled, served with sausage paste
A potato sausage created for Anthony’s Mangers and Bash dish. He said he started making his crazy creations when a British viewer said he should expand his horizons
Anthony said: ‘It all started when I saw a video from Beard Meats Food on YouTube.
‘In one of his videos he stopped at Greggs to get a sausage roll.
‘So I thought it would be funny to do a ‘spoonerized’ version of the sausage roll, which was the Rausage Soll.
Spoonerizing refers to swapping letters or syllables in words or phrases.
‘I made that TikTok video and after that, I started getting requests from some people on TikTok to do other British classics.’
The food has had positive reviews, with one person commenting on the Rausage Solls; ‘I might be mad, but those actually seem banging.’

The Chish and Fips see blended potatoes mixed with flour and egg which is made into a fish shape and then battered and fried, while fish is then fried for the fips
Another commented: ‘There’s actually always way too much pastry. I’m actually here for this one.’
Some, however, reacted badly to the Mangers and Bash, with one person posting; ‘this is out of order’ and another saying; ‘sometimes you need to not think things.’
Anthony added: ‘I’ve found that the Brits have a better attitude towards the videos.
‘I’ve seen a lot of people tagging their friends in the videos and either just laughing about it, making jokes towards each other or the way each other cooks these British classics.
‘Some obviously think I’m serious and criticize me, say things like mocking Americans, and tell me I deserve jail time- I never take those comments seriously though.

‘People from the USA mostly will post comments mocking British food. My lack of seasoning or just being appalled by what they’ve seen- people from the USA are more hostile towards the videos about American food, which just seems natural.’
The Chish and Fips see blended potatoes mixed with flour and egg which is made into a fish shape and then battered and fried, while fish is then fried for the fips.
Mangers and Bash use the same type of batter, but it is then stuffed into a sausage casing and then boiled.
Bash sees blended sausage meat made into a paste with water and then fried off.

Commenters were impressed by the ‘teans on boast’ where the bread is made from bean flour and the topping is croutons
Anthony added: ‘I think I’ve found my niche in the TikTok marketplace with the spoonerized foods.
‘It’s definitely something I find fun to do and plan on doing more videos.’
Anthony has no plans on stopping this theme of cuisine after the videos have racked up more than 10,000,000 views in total.
He added: ‘I do plan on making more spoonerized British food, though no country’s food is off limits from being featured on my channel.
‘I do enjoy a good challenge, sometimes it’s hard to conceptualize what the outcome of spoonerizing food would be, but people usually get a good laugh out of the finished product regardless.’ffe
