On Monday I spent the morning with Daniel Knowlson at Something Fishy smokery. Having worked as a chef since the age of sixteen in top Michelin starred restaurants across the country, and specializing in smoking meat and fish during this time, he recently decided it was time to start his own business. You will find Something Fishy deep within the Berkshire countryside on an estate that dates back to the 9th century, but is currently owned by the Betts family who have been farming here since 1909. The smoking containers he works out of are surrounded by the old mills which are no longer used but still contain the original equipment.
Over the coming weeks I will be documenting Dan's first steps and learning about what makes his new start up, Something Fishy, special.
