Product of the week: Smoked Salmon Fit For A Queen...

Last weekend, I made Sunday lunch for six, where I served up some of Frank Hederman's smoked salmon which I picked up at his stall in Cork's English Market. Frank Hederman's smoked salmon is without hesitation the finest salmon in Europe. He is a true visionary who has been smoking salmon for over 25 years in Belvelly Smoke House, Cobh, Co. Cork.

Frank Hederman's salmon is sourced from Co. Mayo, which is then smoked over beechwood chips specially made for the process in the UK. The salmon is packed, unsliced and sold by the kilo at his stall in The English Market as well being stocked at Midleton Farmer's Market, Avoca, Fallon & Byrne Dublin, Selfridges and Waitrose in the UK.

Frank Hederman's produce has received critical acclaim from top chefs internationally including Heston Blumental, Richard Corrigan, Matthew Fort and many more. In 2006, Frank Hederman's smoked salmon was selected for Queen Elizabeth's birthday dinner and with Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee at the end of the month, all eyes are on whether Frank Hederman's finest smoked salmon will once again make an appearance at the Queen's dinner table.

Frank's smoking talents do not just stop at offering delicious smoked salmon, he also sells smoked silver Eel, smoked Mackeral, and Smoked Mussels in Olive Oil Vinaigrette.

Frank Hederman offers an online shop for those who are based outside of Cork with the option of sending friends a beautifully wrapped piece of Frank Hederman's smoked salmon.
