The Smoking Shed Launches

The time has finally arrived to let the cat fully out the bag about my new business venture into the very exciting and slightly mysterious world of cold smoking food.

My business partner Laurence Woodburn and I stumbled into the ancient and astisan craft recently, and decided it was an excellent opportunity for us to produce some exciting and distictive high quality products.

We built a beautiful smoking shed and imported a nifty piece of equipment from the the US of A.

We had a logo designed and built our starter website. 

But most importantly of all, we are busy sourcing the best possible ingredients to put through the shed and allow the pure cold smoke to impart its magical touch on a range of food and spices.

We are extremely excited!

We will do a range of products that we will be available on a regular basis, but are also looking forward to working with chefs and caterers to develop bespoke recipes.

There will be a lot going on so we will be putting updates about what we are smoking and where to find us on our website, our fb page and via twitter on a regular basis.

We are heading to the Constantia fine food and wine market this week end to trade for the first time.

Our product range will consist of (and depending on seasonal availability): cheddar, mozzarella, butter, macadamia and cashew nuts, salmon, tuna, swordfish, garlic, cured bacon, Atlantic sea salt and chilli flakes. All beautifully smoked.

We hope to see you there or sometime soon to sample our unique products.
