Who has spotted Graham at the Irish Pavilion? #ExpoMilan #BordBia Read more
ALONG GALWAY'S RUGGED Atlantic coast, near the town of Ballyconneely, low-lying, whitewashed building sits perched on a pier, with the strong cold water of the Atlantic crashing almost to its door. This is the Connemara Smokehouse. It appears an unassuming place at first, until you step inside and meet the Roberts family. Graham, in thid mid-thirties, runs the smokehouse with his wife Saoirse and thier four young children (all artisan-smokers-in-the-making)....
The Connemara Smokehouse has been touted by Rick Stein as both a "Hero of Food" and a "Food Super Hero". Graham demonstrated an extremely unique technique for slicing the salmon that I will have to practice and master.
There was the aforementioned Graham Roberts from Connemara Smokehouse who dished out his smoked salmon and the nicest smoked fish I ever had, his line caught Irish tuna ( I challenge any of you lot to find me a nicer smoked creature of the sea).
