Frank Hederman

40 Year Anniversary

This year we will be celebrating the fortieth year of Belvelly Smoke House and the craft to which Frank has dedicated his entire working life with the numerous friends, family and supporters who have been with us through the ups and downs of four decades.

Our anniversary started well with the wonderful news that Frank is to be the 2021 recipient if the Walter Scheel Medal, a prestigious European award which recognises outstanding services to the preservation of European culinary traditions and as such an exceptional contribution to European cultural heritage. Frank is the only person in Ireland to have received this accolade and he joins the ranks of laureates such as Carlo Petrini of Slow food, Ferran Adria of El Bulli, and Pierre Emmanuel Taittinger.

We have lots planned for this year, not least the planting of our walled garden, the first phase of a project that will reveal itself when the salmon smoking allows. We’d like to sincerely thank everyone involved in the smoke house,
especially those who have worked with us, and multitude of people who come back for smoked fish week after week, year after year, making it all possible.

Testimonials

Must comment on the wonderful people in your shop in the market. Went in late yesterday when she had everything put away but she gave me what I required. What a pleasure to deal with nice people…Keep up the good work

Robert O'Brien, Cork, Ireland

Unbelievably good smoked salmon from County Cork in Ireland… A different league

Tom Parker Bowles, Daily Mail

Hederman Smoked Salmon is utterly delicious. Nothing comes close. A great present too.

Alice Garrad Kerr, Holywood, Co. Down

Bravo Hedermans.
I cannot believe that THIS MORNING our Salmon arrived. It travelled so fast to the South of France that its ice pack was still frozen.

Martin & Sile Dwyer, France

“Frank Hederman smoked salmon for breakfast and for lunch because it is so out of this world.”
