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.
Well September proved to be quite a month. First our Maldon Deep smoked salmon won the smoked fish category in the annual Great British Food Awards. Then co-founder and master smoker Sean Jackson starred in the finals of the Young British Foodies.
We're floating in a luxurious kiln on cloud nine right now. It might be some time before we come back down to earth. That's after our Maldon Deep smoked salmon overcame stiff opposition to win the smoked fish category in this year's Great British Food Awards.
Next time you sip on something chilled don’t chomp on dreary dry roasted nuts. Instead delicately scoff on scrummy strips of Lambton & Jackson’s new Maldon smoked salmon jerky. Put simply your pre-dinner drinks and nibbles will never be the same again.
