On Smoke, Craft & Culture: Monki Gras Features Hansen and Lydersen

You know why we do this – we love the small, the perfectly-formed, the unique and the excellent.

This year, we’re celebrating the unique culture of The Nordics, home of the number one restaurant in the world, Noma, which encapsulates the beauty, simplicity, efficiency and elegance of this region.

We want to share the concepts and the tastes of this region, and to that end, we’ve lined up some incredible food lovingly made by specialist craft suppliers.

Meet Ole Hansen, whose family has been smoking salmon since 1923. He now runs the family smokehouse in Stoke Newington, staying true to 4 generations of Hansen and Lydersen craft, producing salmon according to the long-standing traditions that have made his family’s success for more than 80 years.

Ole believes in relentless research and an artisanal approach. So do we. Check out his video here – he sets the stage for Monki Gras 2015 perfectly.
