Open evening at a salmon smokery.

Just two of the salmon delicacies on offer
I mentioned last year that, during July and August, the tourist office in St Gengoux-le-National was having tasting sessions for tourists of some local produce. We had wine from local producers and various other local delicacies, which was when we heard about a smokery in St Gengoux run by a Scottish couple. Last weekend they had an open evening where certain people were invited to taste their products and enjoy a glass of wine with them, in the garden of their home/business.

Their biggest seller is smoked Scottish salmon, but they also do smoked duck and smoked Bresse chicken. The smoking is very delicate and from connoisseurs of the salmon, I understand that their product is significantly better than any other smoked salmon available in the locality. Their business has really blossomed in the year it has been going and they have managed to create a good solid customer base in the locality.

Drinks and smoked salmon in the garden
Sadly rain stopped play a little earlier than expected, but we had still had a very enjoyable evening meeting other gîte and bed and breakfast owners and others from the local business community.

Congratulations go to Ken and Jill Smith, thank you for an lovely evening and long may your success continue.
