You might have caught Gordon Ramsay’s ‘Cookalong live’ show last night. Gordon got wind of the news that our own super slicer, Darren Matson, recently too the world record for the fastest boned and sliced side of smoked salmon. 1 minute and 24 seconds for the budding Norris McWhirters amongst you.
Being a competitive sort, Ramsay threw down the gauntlet and challenged Forman’s hero to a smoked salmon slicing race at Borough Market, the winner taking the record. In front of a crowd of onlookers our man’s 25 years experience on the knives shone through. He gave Ramsay a sound beating for speed, even stopping to offer assistance to the lagging chef half way through. In any event Gordon unfortunately fell foul of the rules and produced one less slice than the minimum requirement of 40 so was disqualified.
An exhausted Matson said, “It was a game of two sides and at the end of the day, I’ve slice mine quickest. Ramsay’s done his best, but I suggest he comes and joins us in the slicing room for a year or two before he tries to take my title again.”
“There is a heartening number of artisan producers and farmers offering wonderful Christmas produce at markets around the country, and the good news is that more of them are pooling their resources to help you order online,” reports Sheila Keating in The Times.
At Forman & Field we’ve always set out to offer customers the chance to buy from the very best small producers but without the trouble or cost of separate deliveries for each and every item in the basket. We save you the trouble of visiting each producer individually, we save on resources by sending everything together and more importantly we dedicate ourselves to making sure everything we sell is the best available.
