Food: Brunch with the kipper and kedgeree

Experience of 007 Travelers: Self-made
Brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch eaten usually during the the late morning but it can extend to as late as 3PM on Sundays. The word is a portmanteau of breakfast and lunch. Brunch originated in England in the late 1800s, and in the 1930s became popular in the United States.
A kipper is a whole herring, a small, oily fish, that has been split in butterfly fashion from tail to head along the dorsal ridge, gutted, salted or pickled, and cold smoked over smouldering woodchips (typically oak).
Kedgeree (or occasionally kitcherie, kitchari, kidgeree, kedgaree, or kitchiri) is a dish consisting of cooked, flaked fish (sometimes smoked haddock), boiled rice, parsley, hard-boiled eggs, curry powder, butter or cream and occasionally sultanas.
“The sun was shining over Cambridge the next morning, but they stayed in their room almost eleven before going down for brunch. The hotel was two-thirds full and just about all the guests had the same idea, which led to a slight waiting time for the kipper and kedgeree.”
John Gardner: “SeaFire”
