If this is Tuesday, it must be England #36

I  loved everything about the Two Fat Ladies cooking show - they used a lot of exotic ingredients, almost always cooked on an Aga, and shopped for meat, fish and produce and cooked in some of the most amazing locations.  One of my favorite shows was the one where they visited Fortune's Kippers in Whitby where they have been smoking kippers for over 139 years.

"Since the Two Fat Ladies visited our smokehouse, Fortune’s fame has spread to Australia, New Zealand and Canada where their television cookery programme the Two Fat Ladies has been broadcast."

A kipper is a fish, especially a herring, that has been cured by splitting, salting, drying and smoking.  If you like fish, you are in for an amazing treat.

Served for breakfast, they are the best way to start your day.  On our next trip to England, we'll be searching for Bed and Breakfast establishments that serve kippers - yummy!
