**Bookings are subject to Covid 19 restrictions which are now slowly beginning to relax**
Isle of Skyes only Commerical smokehouse
A tour of the uniquely designed smokehouse is inspired to look like a traditional Scottish building called a cleit. A peat roof and stonewalled buildings from the bygone years. (Search on google St. Kilda and Cleit).
Learn how the local alder wood is prepared by hand using an axe and used to fire the smokehouse and to create the smoke. I will talk about the various techniques of hot and cold smoking, wet and dry curing.
Smell the secret 6 spice mix blend used in the current recipe to cure the salmon. Can you guess any of the spices?
Finally the best bit tasting, Sample 4 different canapes.
A twist on a Cullen Skink, Smoked salmon mousse on beetroot and blini, two additional tasting spoons.

Topics covered
Isle of Skye, the only commercial smokehouse

The award-winning, Isle of Skye Smokehouse was launched in 2017 by John Corfield who’s passion and dedication for excellence was forged from his time working as a Chef at the Ritz Hotel and Gordon Ramsay’s 3 Michelin Star Restaurant in London.

With 10 year's professional cheffing experience and 8 years running Scalpay View B&B the opening of the smokehouse was a logical progression after perfecting the art of hot smoking salmon for his B&B guests. The business is a relatively new startup home business. Already picking up awards for the Alder Hot Smoked Salmon and supplying high-end hotels and restaurants throughout Skye and Lochlash.

Her skal du være

You will visit the external workings of the smokehouse and a tour outside the kitchen. Also we will have a talk about the smoking processes. Canapes and drinks in the lounge of our B&B overlooking the sea loch and Isle of Scalpay. Might be outside on good weather days. Look out for the resident otters. Due to strict food hygiene practice, there will be no access inside the kitchen area or smokehouse. Don't worry this won't detract from the tour.

The tour with John was extraordinary. The stories he told were very personal and inspiring. Starting up a business from zero and being so passionate about it is inspiring. The fantastic food was the cherry on top. If you have the chance to step in, just do it!

If you are looking for a truly fun, unique, interesting and delicious experience then this is for you. The Isle of Skye is a feast for the eyes and what better way to get to know a place than to enjoy a tasting of some of the best from the local larder in a beautiful coastal home? Chef John is an excellent story teller and his passion for what he is creating is palpable. This was inspiring, entertaining and delicious!

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, hearing about John's career path that lead him to smoking salmon on Skye was fascinating. Lots of information and lots of treats - thank you!

This experience came up as I had booked on Airbnb. I tend to look between here and other sites for places to stay. I’m glad I had booked a stay as I doubt we would have seen it to hook otherwise. I’m definitely going to be more aware of the experiences options in future. John’s tour was great and completely unique and it’s clear he is passionate about what he does. It was interesting to hear about how he got to where he is now and the food was delicious. Hearing and seeing how he sources, prepares and smokes the fish was a complete eye opener. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Skye that wants to do something a little different.
