When Harry (Aaron) Forman arrived in London’s East End from Russia at the beginning of the last century he pursued the trade he knew best – curing fish. Inspired by the exceptional quality of fresh Scottish salmon, Harry developed a cure that complemented its unrivalled flavour. The deliciously mild London Cure was born.
A century later H. Forman & Son remains a family concern, the last of the original London smokeries.

Il Gelato di Ariela
Il Gelato di Ariela (Ariela’s Gelato) was born in 2006 when in a really hot summer Ariela was struggling to find the fantastic Gelato she could only find back home. She realised there was a lack of really authentic Italian Gelato in London. So with the help of Francesca, another Gelato lover, she opened a little Gelateria in north London.
Their mission was to make the original Italian Gelato, the artisan way, using only the best natural ingredients, real fruit and banning all artificial flavourings and colourings.
