The Smoked Food will take you through every stage of every kind of smoking adventure, whether it’s building a smoke house in the garden or cold smoking a dish of butter on your stove top or a cocktail in the dining room. Each method of smoking is explained, including the home smokers available on the market, together with ideas and tips for the kind of food that best suits which one, and the fuel, scents and woods that can be used. There are tempting recipes for all kinds of food, including:
  • Hot-smoked crab
  • Fennel-smoked salmon
  • Texas-style brisket
  • Chipotle chilli chicken
  • Honey-glazed smoked halibut
  • Whiskey-marinated ribs
  • Earl-Grey scented trout.
There are also chapters extending the art of smoke to vegetables, fruit, nuts and even oil and butter, with tempting and delicious recipes suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
