LEADING hipsters have met in a craft ale pub to discuss whether gammon should be the next food trend.
Four influential leaders of today’s consumerist, irony-fuelled youth culture gathered in craft ale bar Hops23 to consider killing off the gourmet burger in favour of slabs of cured pork leg served with chips and Birdseye peas.
24-year-old alpha hipster Julian ‘Cookie’ Cook said: “Gammon’s time has come. Big, thick slices of gammon with pineapple on top, like they used to have in the 90s in these places called, weirdly, Beefeater.
“It’s the Commodore 64 of meats and the masses are going to shit bricks over it. I’m hashtag excited.”
However senior hipster Joanna Kramer said: “I’m worried that people don’t currently hate gammon enough for us to bring it back in an ironic bullshit way.
“What about fondue? Have we done fondue?”
Cook replied: “Yeah we did fondue.”
Following the meeting, it was confirmed that minimalist gammon restaurant Gam Gam will open in Peckham this weekend, with DJs playing pork-themed records.
