Private Smokehouse Tour with H.Formans


There’s no smoke without fire. Except when friction-burning oak logs create the perfect amount of smoke required for the delicate London Cure. Discover this and more trade secrets when you step behind the scenes at Forman’s smokehouse in London.

For over a century H. Forman & Son has been producing world class London Cure Smoked Salmon in the East End of London. Remaining faithful to principles established in 1905, Lance Forman and his team of artisans are upholding traditional values and skills that would otherwise have died out long ago.
