  • Gentlemans Relish is a type of anchovy paste. It is also known as Patum Peperium.
  • It was created in 1828 by an Englishman called John Osborn.
  • It tastes very strong, very salty and slightly fishy (a bit like trout) and contains anchovies (minimum 60%), butter, herbs and spices. The exact recipe however has remained a secret and was passed down by word of mouth over the years.
  • The traditional way of eating Gentleman's Relish is on thin slices of buttered white bread toast, either on its own, or with cucumber, or mustard and cress.
  • can also be added to mince for a different-tasting shepherd's pie or to the mixture for fish cakes, potato cakes and croquettes.
  • Alternatively it can be melted into scrambled eggs or be used as a topping for jacket potatoes.
