Hot and Cold Smoking Course

Course Description

We have demonstrated smoking on our wild food courses at Taste the wild for the last 8 years and due to popular demand we are now running a whole day devoted to this amazing cooking/flavouring technique.

Historically used as a method for food preservation, in more modern times smoking food has been refined into an art where smoke is used to add great flavour to food.

This course covers the hot and cold smoking processes and you will have hands on experience of smoking of a range of foods during the day. We will look at traditional products like smoked trout and salmon as well as some more unusual and delicious products like smoked vegetables, popcorn and olive oil. As well as looking at the smoking process there will be sessions on basic brining and curing, teaching you some extra preserving techniques to use when your back in your own kitchen.

With the knowledge of the basics of smoking and curing that you learn during the day you will be ready to start creating amazing smoked food at home. The course also covers the construction of different types of smoker and you will leave with a set of plans for both a cold and a hot smoker as well as your own Mac’sbbq smoke generator worth £34.99!
