Chefs & Reviews
We deliver our smoked seafood to leading restaurant chefs every week. We know they're big fans of what we do, but we thought you might appreciate reading some of their comments on our work along with a splash of praise from the food critic world.
"The Maldon Deep was a clear winner for me. It had a good, strong smoky flavour - they obviously tend their smoker with great care," Tim Hayward, Financial Times restaurant critic and smoked fish competition judge for the Great British Food Awards.
“Lambton & Jackson’s Maldon Deep smoked salmon is an amazing, unique product,” Mark Froydenlund, chef-patron at 2 Michelin-starred restaurant Marcus in Knightsbridge and winner of Great British Menu.
"The Maldon Deep smoked salmon was unbelievably delicious. We've been dreaming about it ever since," Judges' Panel, The Young British Foodies Awards 2017.
"We blind tested smoked salmon from the UK's leading producers. Everyone placed Lambton & Jackson's Maldon Cure and Maldon Deep in the top two. That's how good they are," Paul Farmer, Executive Head Chef, The Cavalry & Guards Club.
"I love the Maldon Deep smoked salmon. It's got such a distinct flavour," Tony Fleming, Executive Head Chef, Hotel L'Oscar and former Michelin-starred chef at South Place Hotel's Angler Restaurant.
"Lambton & Jackson's Maldon Deep smoked salmon is in a league of its own. The depth and clarity of flavour is stunning,” Alyn Williams, Executive Head Chef of the Michelin-starred Alyn Williams restaurant at The Westbury Mayfair and former UK National Chef of the Year.
“Smoked salmon royale featured a generous portion of superb fish from the Lambton & Jackson smokehouse,” Time Out London magazine review of restaurant Verden, February 2015.
“The Kiln Roasted smoked salmon has a really good smoky balance and tastes great,” Martin Green, Head Chef, White's Club.
“The Maldon Cure smoked salmon and Oak smoked eel are both exquisite,” Stephen Li, Head Chef, Alec's.
“The Juniper smoked salmon is unlike anything I have seen before. I love it. It's become a staple of my creative cooking and drink matches,” Marco Jerrentrup, Head Chef, Wondering Wine.
It was a privilege to play a supporting role at the recent Women in Hospitality 2018 event in London. Our smoked eel proved a big hit as a starter. No surprise given its wondrous Thai makeover from The Begging Bowl's hugely inventive chef patron Jane Alty.
Fabulous news food gong lovers, our Juniper smoked salmon won two stars at the Great Taste Awards 2018. After devouring a side the judges called it "delicious." Only last year our Maldon Deep won the smoked fish category at the Great British Food Awards.
Our awesome new handcrafted salmon boards have arrived. Carved from hornbeam and ash, they are a real dinner party showstopper. And if you're feeling up for the challenge, you can also purchase a stylish salmon knife and side of unsliced Maldon Deep.
