Here's the latest news from Mister Saucisse, AKA Tim Rose. He's based near Carcassonne so if you don't live in the PO there are easier ways to get the sausages.
Summer is with us and we are well into the barbecue season. What better than an English style banger sizzling away over the hot coals?
I'm coming back down to the Pyrenees Orientales on Thursday, 16th of August with a selection of my fine English sausages for the discerning customer. All bangers are hand made by me in the Aude.
The sausages I'm making this time are:
The Tasty - a typical English breakfast sausage, great for a brunch
The Traditional - sausages like they used to be with a subtle mix of herbs and a hint of nutmeg
The Pyrenean Cumberland - our speciality having trained in Cumbria.
Pork and Leek - no small crumbs of leek, we use great big bits!
Jalapeno - mexican chillis for a bit of exotic heat
Plus some specials:
London - sea salt, cracked black pepper and sage with a pinch of nutmeg
Oxford - Yet another great county sausage. The original recipe from the 18th Century was made with pork and veal. This recipe is specially designed for pork. It is packed with herbs and lots of ground black and white pepper and other traditional ground spices.
All at 5 euros per packet for six big bangers. Sausage meat also available for making stuffing, sausage rolls, scotch eggs...... I may also have some bacon available - hand rubbed, dry cured back bacon.
I only use shoulder meat, the best cut for making sausages (no "yucky bits"), and add no fat. The sausages are made in my small manufacturing facility in the Aude, Languedoc Rousillon. Visitors are always welcome (phone ahead to make sure I'm in) and I will make you a great cup of tea.
I never use frozen pork, only fresh. Sausages are ideal for the freezer.
I will be appearing at the following drop off points:
0900 - 0915 St Paul de Fenouillet, main square behind the bus stop
1115 - 1145 Prades, behind the big blue Chambre de Commerce building on the way into the town
1230 - 1315 The Domaine Treloar, Trouillas where Jon and Rachel are very kindly hosting me
1415 - 1445 Behind the Salle Polyvalente, St Jean Pla de Corts (hopefully more handy for those living in the Ceret / Argeles areas)
1530 - 1600 Stade Gilbert Brutus, Perpignan - in front of the old main entrance to the Catalan Dragons ground
