Fortune's Kippers

in Whitby

Fortune's has been making kippers (smoked herring) at this little smokehouse since 1872, and still turns out some of Britain's best; they're on the breakfast menu all over Whitby but you can buy them here (along with smoked bacon) and take a peek inside the charred smoking room where the kippers hang, which can be smelt long before its seen.

How to cook them? Either smear with butter and grill until bubbling, or poach in boiling water for five minutes, and serve with brown bread.
