When you have had such great regional fare @ the World's Longest lunch its hard to work out what to have for breakfast.
It was tricky to decied what to have post lunch as we were spoilt rottern but luckily enough we popped in to Buxton Trout on the way home and got some extra smokey trout.
One of the original Travelling-foodies is a chef so we got her in the kitchen to make us all breakfast.
