A CLASSIC, OFT-FORGOTTEN INGREDIENT, GETS ITS MOMENT IN THE SUN


 

Forman & Field serves British classics but also stocks hard-to-find delicacies. One of our products in particular has a die-hard core of supporters who come back for it, year upon year. That product is our Smoked Cod’s Roe, and a customer drew our attention to the fact that it has been in the spotlight recently, on none other than BBC Masterchef and Men’s Health Magazine. (Check out the challenge on Masterchef at 17:39 minutes into the video, as the chefs attempt to create Taramasalata to include in a beautiful scallop dish.)

Smoked Cod’s roe may not be the most beautiful food product, but these humble lobes hide an inimicable rounded, salty taste, that’s bursting with nutrition.

Men’s Health has named cod’s roe as “One of the 25 best foods to eat right now”, explaining that it is super high in protein and beneficial fats. Our smoked cod’s roe is also gluten free! This forgotten culinary delicacy used to be a staple at the clubs of St. James’ in London. We, like them, love it spreaded on buttered toast.

Cod’s roe is also used in Taramasalata. Ours is completely natural, so it isn’t that revolting shade of pink, because we don’t add any colourings to the mix. More importantly we don’t add loads of unnecessary breadcrumbs and oil to make up for a lack of the real product. Our Taramasalata has just a few ingredients: smoked cod’s roe, lemon, garlic, yoghurt, and indulgent marscapone cheese.

You don’t need to make your own Taramasalata of course, but if you’d like to, we’ve got the key ingredients to hand….
