Breakfast with the Guvnor

Cereal? Bacon ‘n’ eggs? No, thanks! The Guvnor will have Kippers instead.

What the bloomin ’eks a Kipper you ask?

A kipper is a fish, usually a whole herring or sardine, which has been sliced in half from head to tail, gutted, salted or pickled, then smoked. This process is known as “kippering”.

The kipper was popular on Victorian and Edwardian breakfast tables — also enjoyed for high tea and supper. Kippers can be baked, fried and cooked in a tall jug of boiling water.

English chefs and food writers including Nigella Lawson, Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsey, Marco Pierre White and Delia Smith have endorsed the kipper for a number of reasons. Its attractive price might be one of them. The other might quite possibly be the fact that they are rich in Omega 3 and very tasty. The fact that they are on the Marine Conservation Society’s list of fish to eat means consumers can enjoy the health benefits and taste of kippers without feeling guilty.

No wonder the Guvnor likes it!
