Following the success of Bangers to Bacon, Jeremy Schmid takes it a step further with 
Smoked and  demonstrates the wide scope of this age-old art of preserving food. 

     The enticing aroma of wood smoke is hard to beat but as Jeremy shows, you don’t necessarily have to cook outdoors or use expensive equipment to create that sweet salty smoked flavour. Smoking units can be created for the stove-top, in a barbecue, or in a
 cabinet outside. Jeremy describes the difference between  hot and cold smoking, explains 
wood fuels and spices to blend and balance the right level of smoky flavours, 
and uses step-by-step photos to show the process. 

     Individual sections on meat, fish and seafood, fruit and vegetables, dairy, eggs and nuts 
all begin with technique, then lead on to showcase the delicious recipes Jeremy has 
developed using smoked foods. 
With his help, you can make your own mouth-watering pastrami, or try Smoked Snapper Pie, Beer-crusted bread with Smoked Butter and even Roast Apricots with Smoked Mascarpone 
for dessert.
