This brilliant video, which, admittedly seems like a spoof at times, features one of the world’s foremost smokers of salmon, Ole Hansen of  Hansen & Lydersen. Originally from Norway, now based in Stoke Newington, London, Hansen has built his home and life around his craft. Living in a self-built cabin on a roof above his smokery, no shower, no heating, plenty of wood, he supplies his famed product, a longstanding family recipe, to fancy restaurants including Nopi, Hakkasan’s Sake No Hana and Conran’s The Boundary. He also plays classical piano to his hanging salmon. Yeah, why not? A FvF and Everything is Ok production.
