Hansen & Lydersen – The smoked salmon is delicious, he is delicious , as the Blonde Norseman Ole chats about his Great Grandfather’s smoked salmon traditions. RDV Saturday 22nd Nov 2014. Stall outside the Daylesford Farm Shop on Pimlico road, London. The Dorchester & The Firehouse are reportedly fans…….we are too……

At Hansen & Lydersen, we smoke salmon the true Norwegian way.

 We source our salmon from a sustainable farm in the extreme wilderness between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic, and ensure we prepare it less than 48 hours after it has been fished. We are extremely demanding with our suppliers when it comes to sustainable harvesting standards and welfare practices. This is the best farmed salmon in the world from one of the last family run fish farms. Each Hansen & Lydersen salmon is carefully hand-filleted and hand-salted according to a family recipe devised by Norwegian fishmonger Lyder-Nilsen Lydersen in 1923. 

It is then traditionally hung and slowly cold-smoked in the brick kiln of our Stoke Newington smokehouse where it moves in the wind for 12 hours. We use a unique blend of juniper and beech wood for a pleasantly sharp and piquant aroma. Our wood shavings are responsibly sourced, 100% pure wood – with zero chemicals.

Audi “TT Cup” Racer for 2015.

Audi have announced the release of a racing version of the TT, dubbed the 'TT Cup', which will take part in a championship of the same name in 2015, supporting the DTM (German Touring Cars), across six rounds. The track-ready TT Cup will feature a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine packing 306bhp and mated to a six-speed DSG gearbox – which have both been carried across largely unchanged from the road legal TT S. However in its stripped-out racing state the TT Cup weighs just 1,125kg – considerably less than the road car's 1,460kg kerb weight. Additionally, a 'push-to-pass' function has been added and unleashed another 30bhp, which combined with the weight saving should noticeably liven up the car. A total of 24 TT Cups will be prepared for each round, with the grid comprising six 'changing guest drivers' and 18 private racers. When asked about the new track-ready TT Cup, Audi's research and design chief Dr Ulrich Hackenberg said: "For me it was clear that a driving machine like the new Audi TT belongs on the race track as well...The TT is going to thrill fans and drivers". News of this dedicated track edition of the TT has led to a lot of speculation online, with many Audi fans asking if a similar road legal version of the Cup will be made available to the general public. Judging by the reaction of Audi fan boys and guys alike, we don't doubt that there would be a significant level of interest in a stripped-out, lightweight TT – should the company decide to build one.

Francesco Vezzoli: Teatro Romano On view October 26, 2014–March 8, 2015 Drawing on extensive research about the use of color in antiquity, Italian artist Francesco Vezzoli (b. 1971) has collaborated with a team of archaeologists, conservators and polychrome specialists to paint five ancient Roman busts in the manner in which they would originally have been decorated. While white marble remains the quintessential material of ancient Greek and Roman statuary, extensive research has confirmed that ancient sculpture was painted in a vivid palette of yellows, blues, reds and greens. Dating from the first and second centuries A.D., Vezzoli’s Roman Imperial busts restore to contemporary imagination the decorated surfaces that have faded away over nearly two thousand years. Teatro Romano is organized by Klaus Biesenbach, Director, MoMA PS1, and Chief Curator at Large, The Museum of Modern Art, with Margaret Aldredge, Curatorial Assistant, MoMA PS1 The exhibition is made possible by the MoMA PS1 Annual Exhibition Fund.
