I'm really excited about this one. There are two processes when it comes to smoking food: 'cold smoking', where things like raw fish, meats and cheeses are put into a smoky environment with no heat source, and 'hot smoking', which has the added heat source. It gives great results. All you really need is an old biscuit tin with a lid, a wire rack that fits inside it or a bit of chicken wire and some uncoated sawdust (the type you get for putting in pets' cages). When you put the tin on your heat source, it will act like a kind of oven – don't get nervous if it seems a bit radical to you, because it's so easy. And imagine how impressed your mates will be when you tell them you've hot smoked the food yourself! PS A word of warning: this will make your house a bit smoky, so either open the windows to get some fresh air through, or have a go at doing it outside on your barbie.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
