Got an invite for Christmas dinner?
If you’re lucky enough not to be tasked with cooking this year, you’ll be on the hunt for something special to bring to the table on December 25th.
Of course, a bottle of wine or bubbles is always a good shout, but if your host is a consummate foodie, there’s one locally-made treat that’s guaranteed to wow them this year.
At Hedderman’s Belvelly Smoke House near Cobh, the award-winning smoked salmon is not only luscious but also comes in a beautiful gift box for Christmas.
Located just 20 minutes from Cork, the family business, winner of the prestigious Walter Scheel Medaille, has just unveiled a cosy new Tasting Room, where you can purchase your pick of treats from the sea every day until noon right up until Christmas Eve.

You’ll also find them in Cork’s English Market and at Cobh and Midleton Farmer’s Markets.
Our firm favourite is the Hederman Hot Smoked Irish Salmon with Chillies – just delicious in a spicy soup or served simply on a slice of buttered brown bread with a cuppa on Christmas morning.
