I have a feeling that if he did that either Andy M or I would find him on our doorstep with hobo pack in hand!

Youth is wasted on young people ... and the joys of travelling can be wasted on those who actually have to (get to) do it. Eight different kinds and they wouldn't even try one?!

Herring in sour cream is ... heaven. I have to traipse into the belly of the city to a little Polish market to get this, and even then, only around Christmas-time.

Since we're on a herring tangent: how about kippered herring? Who does those? I eat 'em on buttered toast, but for a real treat (I know this should go into the weird combos thread for some of you) try kippers on buttered toasted raisen bread with freshly ground pepper!!!

I would be lucky if she let me have the hobo pack

Ayrton, I love kippers. If my parents go to Craster (in Northumberland) in November (my mum's birthday), I make her post me some. Seems bizarre sending smoked fish in the post from Britain to Spain. But they make it here OK at that time of year. They aren't going this year unfortunately... Boo hoo. I bet Ishbel loves kippers too.

I LOVE tinned kipper filets - especially with eggs in the morning. However, when I tried whole smoked kippers, I really had a big problem with all the little bones. Don't know if this was just the way these kippers were processed, or if this is the way they were supposed to be.

You're right Snoops... Arbroath smokies or Manx or Crasters.... YUM!
I didn't know you could get tinned kippers.

Ishbel - perhaps they don't have tinned kippers where you are since the authentic thing is right there!!!

But I do love them. I haven't found them tinned in our local grocers here yet, but my mom sends tins of them to me in her cute little "gourmet" gift packages from NY. I really do like them with eggs in the morning, although "fish & eggs" is something I really picked up from my visit to Bermuda. "Fish (regular fish - not smoked - ) & eggs was part of the regular breakfast menu, & I've adopted it ever since. My usual fresh (as in unsmoked) breakfast fish of choice is cod. I saute it in lots of butter along with the eggs. Heaven + Heart-Attack-On-A-Plate (lots of butter).
