London Cure Smoked Scottish Salmon
On a grey and damp Saturday last October all of us here at Yumblog Towers boarded the Globe Town charabanc and trundled eastwards to the annual Forman & Field open day. It transpired to be a great day out with talks and demonstrations from farmers and food producers, a tour of the smokery, and most important of all, plentiful tasties to eat and drink. The quality of everything, and especially the smoked salmon, was exceptional, so when F & F got in contact recently and asked if we’d like a freebie of their London Cure Smoked Scottish Salmon we thought it would be churlish to refuse.
We decided not to do anything fancy with our salmon and simply serve it generously piled atop thin slices of buttered toasted Oatmeal & Molasses bread naked but for a twist of black pepper and a squirt of lemon juice.
At the risk of sounding like our impartiality and integrity can be bought with the gift of a mere 200g of delicious slowly cured Scottish smoked salmon, I can honestly say this is the best we have ever had the pleasure to eat. That said, at £9.95 for a small packet, it is also the most expensive we have ever had the pleasure to eat. However, with food you get the quality you pay for, and when it comes to this particular product, all of the 995 pennies would be very well spent.
If you are in the market for a smoked salmon which isn’t at all salty and melts in the mouth with a creamy intensity of flavour, then this is for you.
