London Smoke & Cure: Smoked salmon
Smokery – London Smoke & Cure He’s back! Ross says “Looking forward to seeing you all again tomorrow! Here’s a conversation I heard recently inside my head –
Ross: Do you know how long it has been since we last traded down at Crystal Palace market?
Lovely Local Customer: It has been a while, but I couldn’t say for sure.
R: 162 days!
LLC: Wow. But why? Why have you left us for so long, we feel literally starved of high quality locally produced smoked products!
R: That’s a good question, I’m glad you asked. Well, most importantly, I’ve become a father to a little girl called Florrie Bee. She’s very lush, look out for her at the stall. But also, I’ve been expanding the smokery. Now we can produce greater quantities and a wider range of products to satisfy your insatiable demand for quality produce.
LC: That sounds fab, what have you got this week to satisfy my insatiable demands.
R: This week I’ve got some of London’s most exceptional cold smoked salmon, Some smoked duck and chicken. A tiny bit of hot smoked Venison that makes my heart sing when I eat it. Oh, and cheese too. I love cheese.
LLC: Yuumers, I’ll have a bit of everything please.
R: You have exquisite taste!”
Wine – Wine Scouts Pedro says “I’ll open the lovely organic red wine Brezo Tinto Mencia from Bierzo in NW Spain. An inky-purple in colour. Aromas of cassis, raspberry and smoke. On the palate, full-bodied and generous with bags of earthy red fruits. Rich and chewy in texture, the finish is lingering. Bodegas Mengoba is located in Sorribas in the increasingly fashionable Bierzo region of Castilla y Leon, northwest Spain. Run very much along artisanal lines by Gregory Perez (the vineyards are ploughed by bulls), the vines are grown on clay and sandy soils at an altitude of 550 metres and the whole vinification process takes place, unusually, in one single barrel. The Brezo Tinto is 100% Mencia from 30 year old vines located in Gregory’s Horta and Villafranca vineyards.”
