Track a Parcel

Written by , Posted in News

We know what’s like.  You’ve booked a delivery but you’ve had no notification to say it’s going to be delivered on the day you requested.  Sometimes you just want to clarify that’s it’s still scheduled and for this there is a way you can track the parcel yourself.

UK Mail, our chosen supplier, have a nifty system that you can use to track your parcel – so you can take things in to your own hands and ensure total peace of mind.

In order to track your parcel firstly head over to www.ukmail.com then click on “Manage my delivery” then click on “Customer reference”. Read more...

An introduction to Zwyer / A tasty April offer

Written by , Posted in News

To mark our month of caviar our newest team member Beth delved into the world of one of our most respected suppliers, Zwyer.  We’re offering 15% off Zwyer’s Baerii caviar for the month of April only, so what better time to indulge in something decadent, organic and sustainable?

I’ve not been with Forman & Field for too long, but since joining I’ve been on a wonderful journey learning about our food, our incredible standards and our fantastic suppliers.  Caviar was not something I’d had the pleasure of trying too much in the past, let alone become a connoisseur.  Read more...

The Masterclass **Gallery**

Written by , Posted in News

The Smokehouse tours, aside from our salmon, is one of your most treasured pieces of this wonderful family business.  We get to meet wonderful people on a bi-monthly basis, and some how Darren always manages to change up the show so that no tour is the same as the last.  Last Friday’s had equal charm.  A small group of equally lovely people, it really is the personal interactions that make this tour our favourite.

But many don’t know about the cherry on the cake, fish de resistance, that is our Masterclass, which can be booked as a supplement to the tour, or on it’s own.  Read more...

Mother’s of Formans

Written by , Posted in News, Seasonal

As Mother’s Day draws in (2 weeks earlier thanks to the ways of the lunar cycle!) we asked some of our favourite Forman & Field Mum’s to describe their ideal Mothering Sunday’s.  Naturally they had a few Forman & Field products on their mind, but more often than not the thought was much more important than the expenditure.  If you’re looking for some inspiration or a wish list please read on…

Claire, our Wholesale and Events extraordinaire explains, “Having a full time job with fully energized  children can be a wonderful but tiring time sometimes.  Read more...

London’s first PGI protected product is…

Written by , Posted in News

We have made history…


London’s first PGI protected product will be H. Forman & Son’s
London Cure Smoked Salmon!

The hallowed European Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status, enforced by law, is designed to protect and celebrate traditional regional foods, such as Gorgonzola in Italy or Champagne in France. In order to receive this status, the entire product must be processed within a specific region. London Cure smoked salmon has to be produced in the London Boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Hackney or Newham. This status confers a great honour on London Cure salmon, and recognises that UK and London cuisines are globally important cultural artefacts. Read more...

FRESH IDEAS FOR FATHER’S DAY

Written by , Posted in News, Seasonal

BeFunky Design FATHERSDAY


[TEXT]
Dads can sometimes be harder to shop for than mums. Traditionally, they’ve spent less time at home, and seemingly always claim to not want a fuss (whether or not that’s actually true).

Now as modern families are challenging the conventional roles, it’s evermore important to equally celebrate both parents and the important role models that are dads and stepdads. As difficult as it may be to find the right gift for your Dad, we know that you can never go wrong with good food.

We have the perfect range of products to let dad know you’ve got him in your thoughts, whether you’re planning on sharing a meal at home or sending a gift.  Read more...
