We have our last smoking course of the year on Wednesday, it’s at The Wild Boar and it promises to be great fun! (We have a couple of places available if anyone can make it at short notice – contact 015394 45225.)
There is a fantastic new room at The Wild Boar which we dined in on the last course – wonderfully welcoming!
Here’s an email from a recent Smoky Jo-er… Bobby the Boiler is his DIY Smoker
Dear Jo and Georgina,
I suspect that you get many emails from people saying what a great time they had. Well please allow me to be the latest.
The day was excellent. Informative and enjoyable in equal measure. I have not stopped talking about it and must confess to becoming a smoking bore!!
You will see a picture of Bobby the boiler. Recently finished his life as a central heating boiler and with a few well placed self tapping screws and some hardboard he has now found a new lease of life as a cold smoking cabinet.
This is his first outing. We have successfully smoked some salmon and haddock fillets along with flour and a couple of generous blocks of cheese. The haddock has made some wonderful fishcakes and the salmon found its way into a risotto. The flour will soon become the first mince pies of the season and the cheese just enjoyed for its own sake.
Once again thank you for a great day and the start of a whole new way of enjoying food.
Have a great Christmas and I wish you both all of the very best in 2016
