What is a kebab and why do we love them so much?

The first kebab shop opened in North London in 1966 and there are now over 20,000 kebab outlets in the UK selling around 2,500 tonnes of lamb and chicken doner a week.

The word ‘kebab’ comes from ‘kebap’ meaning cooked over an open flame and ‘doner’ refers to meat cooked on the famous vertical rotisserie.
