The crazy thing is, you can now find more of these old traditional dishes on menus in expat resorts in places like Hua Hin than you can in England where everyone is now eating quinoa or whatever the latest fad is.

Not exactly a dish, but definitely British...

My brain is like an Internet browser; 12 tabs are open and 5 of them are not responding, there's a GIF playing in an endless loop,... and where is that annoying music coming from?

You can get colemans in Makro, either already made or in powder form. There is also another manufacturer they sell at Makro - can't remember the name but they are next to each other so difficult to miss.

EDIT: I remember some Belgian friends swallowing the things raw and whole at a Herring festival years ago. They were definitely not smoked, at least the Herring weren't. :shock: :laugh:

I only know this because of an old friend from Grimsby who knew a lot about fish but what makes a smoked herring a kipper is that it's the whole fish, split along the back and opened up before smoking.
