And the winner is ………….

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

We’re delighted to announce that after two weeks of voting, Clare Jefferis’ recipe for Gooseberry Pots is the clear winner in our Diamond Jubilee Recipe competition.

Claire was crowned winner with more than half of the final votes, after having fought off competition from the other three shortlisted recipes which included Smoked Salmon Cheesecake, Royally Spiced Smoked Salmon Parcels and Dream Cream Jubilee Cake.

As the overall winner, we will be sending Clare our fantastic Jubilee Shopper to celebrate the 5th June in style.











Gooseberry Pots is a firm favourite in the Jefferis household and tastes even better when it is made with homegrown gooseberries. Below is the recipe in case you want to try it out for your own Jubilee celebrations.

Free recipe booklet giveaway madness

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Our lovely friends at Seafood in Schools gave us some delicious little recipe booklets recently and they could be yours – yes, yours!

The colour booklets feature ten completely easy and tasty salmon recipes. We cannot get enough of the salmon teriyaki and the hot smoked salmon florentine.

All you have to do is sign up to our blog here and leave a little comment below by ‘posting’ something. The first 20 to post a comment will receive a booklet.

It could be as simple as a ‘hello’ or a heartfelt plea about why you need more free salmon recipes in your life or maybe a beautiful poem that your soul has been bursting to share with the public. A poem won’t get you more recipes but we will all pat you on the back and say, ‘Very well done, old chap’ and be as kind as your Mum would be. Promise.

Junior chefs cook up winning recipes for Inverawe competition

Sunday, March 25th, 2012
Two talented young chefs have been selected from more than 450    entries from school pupils across Scotland in Inverawe’s kids’ recipe  competition.
Sophie Lathan, from Glasgow, won with the competition with her  recipe for fish parcels with roasted veg couscous while Toby  Thompson, from North Berwick, was runner-up with his dish –  Mamma’s meatballs.
The competition was launched by Scotland’s oak smokehouse as part  of an initiative to encourage healthy eating amongst children. Rosie  Campbell-Preston, owner of Inverawe Smokehouses, said:  “We had great fun trying all the recipes for their favourite soups and smoothies, fish and meat dishes, as well as healthy desserts and cakes and it was difficult to pick just one.”
Sophie has won £100 in vouchers for both her and her school, while Toby has won £50 in vouchers.
Toby  said: “I feel glad and happy because I didn’t know I was going to come anywhere close to runner-up.  This is my favourite recipe and I always ask my mum to cook it for me. ”
Sophie said: “I was really shocked but very happy to find out I had come first in the Inverawe recipe competition. I would like to say a big thank you to the owners of the Inverawe Smokehouse for their generous prize. I will be saving my Amazon vouchers to buy something special.”
