Atlantic Isles®

Our Atlantic Isles Smoked Salmon is made of the finest quality, freshest, and most sustainable Scottish Atlantic Salmon from the southwestern corner of the subarctic Shetland Islands. Our salmon is beautiful and lean and has virtually no fat on the fillet. The leanness comes from the salmon swimming against the strong currents of the cold northern Atlantic Ocean.

Our fresh salmon is immediately transported within hours of being caught to a traditional artisanal Scottish smokehouse. The smokehouse is Grade-A accredited by the British Retail Consortium Global Standard for Food Safety.

With traditional, time-honored quality and artisan techniques, each fresh salmon is hand filleted, hand salted, and hand sugared. The dry-cured process uses a unique blend of Kosher Salt and Brown Sugar.

Once the dry-curing process is complete, the salmon is then naturally cold air smoked over smoldering oak wood chippings for 12-14 hours. Cold fresh air is vented in every 30 minutes throughout the natural smoking process for freshness and taste quality purposes. Atlantic Isles Smoked Salmon is 100% all natural with no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.

Each smoked salmon fillet is then fully trimmed by hand and vacuum sealed to preserve the flavor as nature intended. All orders are custom and are authentic products of Scotland. Atlantic Isles Smoked Salmon is flown from Scotland to the United States weekly to guarantee maximum freshness.

For a more intense twice-smoked flavor, try our delicious Kilchurn Estate Smoked Salmon.

Domaine de Provence®

Domaine de Provence was inspired by Henry Wainer’s visits to the street markets in the south of France. He visited the Roman aquifers where we grow our own olive trees and sampled unique artisanal products all along the Mediterranean. Each artisan uses only local ingredients, perfecting their craft in small quality batches, resulting in delicious long-standing flavors evident in their old-world methodologies. Their recipes have been handed down from one generation to the next, each adding its own special touch and perfecting their techniques. Enjoy the many dimensions of flavors France has to offer, now available in your own kitchen from Sid Wainer & Son.

Fondo di Alba®

At Sid Wainer & Son we knew that no line of specialty foods would be complete without Italian truffles. Our Fondo di Alba line is a product of 12 years of extensive research. Henry Wainer traveled to Italy where he met with truffle foragers and enjoyed the incredible flavor of fresh truffles foraged that day. Over the years he was able to participate in foresting adventures and attend the annual truffle festival in Alba, which attracts visitors from all over the globe. He learned the traditions and techniques of creating authentic oils, exquisite butters, and much more during his search for the highest quality, freshest truffles, and truffle products. He now oversees a truly exceptional collection of fresh truffles and wonderful truffle products, created in historical family traditions, prepared exclusively for Fondo di Alba.

Fondo di Toscana®

There are few places in the world where the essence of the land is represented so prominently in the regions’ products as in Tuscany Italy. In our efforts to bring chefs and home cooks the true authentic culinary spirit of Italy, we introduce our Fondo di Toscana product line. From our traditionally produced extra virgin olive oil made with only the finest olives to our rich and delicious fig and chestnut products, these recipes are steeped in ancient artisanal traditions that are signature to Tuscany’s specific flavors and ingredients. While we may not be able to quite put our finger on what makes Tuscan products so special, whether it be the rich soil, the fresh salt air, or the rolling hills of wheat fields and olive trees, we have compiled a truly remarkable and fully-encompassing line of authentic Tuscan products.
