NEXT WEEKEND, HAVE A FORMANS ROAST…

Written by , Posted in News, Opinions, Seasonal

Beef Ribsresized

There’s no better British tradition than that of the leisurely Sunday Roast


Our Aberdeen Angus Beef is grass fed and aged for 32 days. Beef rib, cooked slightly rare in the middle, cut into generous slabs and served up with yorkshire puds and red wine jus? There’s just nothing that can equal it. Click here and here to see a variety of Aberdeen beef cuts and sizes. Serve with our goose fat roasted pommes chateaux and some pancetta sprouts.

[Aberdeen Angus Scotch Beef Ribs on or off the bone from £39.95 – Steaks for two available for £14.95]

Smoked salmon isn’t the only traditional food of London’s East End! Read more...

Ahhh February 14th, the most romantic date on the calendar. Are you planning a meal for two but can’t quite decide on what to serve, Forman & Field can help…


 

If you’re looking for a starter that’s both special and just a tad classy you can’t go wrong with our Paupiettes. Having been served at Buckingham Palace at the Coronation celebrations back in 2013 we can say they’ve got Royal Approval! Pictured below is our Crab & Lobster Paupiette, however we also make Hot-Smoked Wild Salmon Mousse Paupeittes which are perfect for anyone who doesn’t eat shellfish. Read more...

The Humble Smoked Cods Roe

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. Read more...

The turn of Autumn brings the end to those long warm summer nights. The air turns crisp, and the ground is covered in a blanket of orange and red leaves. Along with this, Autumn also brings the growing season to an end, which means it’s time to stock up for those warming feasts!


 

Whether you’re heading to one of many Bonfire Night events in the park, hosting your own party for family friends, or even cuddled up watching the fireworks from the comfort of your sofa, you can certainly enjoy the celebrations with some good food. Read more...

Yes, 2 open days in one year! We had such a blast at the last one back in February, we decided to hold another but this time… festive themed.

When we say we’re throwing the doors open, we really mean it. You will have the opportunity to see inner workings of a traditional salmon smokehouse, to walk through our factory, and to peek into our 5-star kitchen and ask chefs any questions that come to mind.  Read more...

FORMANS GAMES by Lance Forman

Written by , Posted in News, Opinions

Available on the Forman & Field website, Forman’s Games lifts the lid on the acrimonious battle that pitched Forman’s, the country’s finest purveyor of smoked salmon, against the combined might of the UK authorities and the International Olympic Committee in the run-up to the 2012 London Olympics.

This is the story of one family business, established in 1905, fighting the might of national and local government, the London Olympic Games Organising Committee (LOCOG) and of course the Olympic Movement, which operates above the laws of the countries who host its activities.  Read more...
