About H. Forman & Son

In 1905 Lance Forman’s great-grandfather, Aaron ‘Harry’ Forman set up the family business with his son, Louis, in London’s East End. A Russian émigré with a family to provide for, Harry saw potential in the curing of fresh Scottish salmon, the king of fish and London Cure Smoked salmon was born. The father and son entrepreneurs convinced London’s foremost culinary establishments that smoked Scottish salmon was a gourmet delicacy. Soon Forman’s clientele included Fortnum & Mason, Selfridges, Harrods, the Ivy and Mirabelle. A century later H. Forman & Son remains a family concern, the last of the original London smokehouses. Remaining faithful to principles established in 1905 – the freshest salmon, a little salt, just the right amount of oak smoke – Lance Forman is upholding traditional values and skills that would otherwise have died out long ago.
The secret of the London Cure is a love of salmon. The idea is to preserve those wonderful flavours. Salmon that only tastes of smoke is completely self-defeating. Who wants to taste smoke? That’s why our world famous London Cure has a very simple recipe – the freshest salmon, a little salt, just the right amount of oak smoke. Nothing else. We apply the mild London Cure to all our Scottish salmon, whether it is Grade One farmed salmon from Loch Hourn or wild salmon netted on the River Tweed. It’s the cure favoured by chefs and gourmets the world over.
