Wimbledon – Fortnum & Mason & Scotch Eggs

I love a good Scotch Egg but they are not as Scottish as you think! allegedly invented by Fortnum’s as picnic food, ideal for sustenance on early train journeys!  I therefore loved this PR stunt put on by Fortnum & Mason early this morning in SW19 the Wimbledon Tennis queue…

“Early risers joining the queue for Wimbledon tickets got an unexpected surprise this morning when a team of suave Fortnum & Mason red tails descended on SW19 to hand out some much needed sustenance. Dressed to the nines, the dashing fleet treated tennis goers to gourmet Scotch Eggs – rumoured to have been invented by Fortnum’s in 1738.”
