More on Meat



As I was tooling about the internet this weekend I stumbled across an excellent and comprehensive website dedicated to the humble yet delicious British sausage. The page tickled something in my memory and I fired off an inquiry to the site administrator, asking him if this was the sausage website created by my sister-in-law's brother. A reply today comfimed that I had indeed found my way to the correct site:

Sausage Links

David has done a cracking job advocating for the humble sausage, and if you are in any way carnivore-inclined, this site is a real -ahem- feast. Given the difficulty in obtaining British style sausages in the USA you might even be inspired to try making your own using David's handy and simple instructions. If you do, let me know, and I'll invite myself around for dinner.

You really can't beat a good banger.

David has done a lunch, this n s a cracking job advocating for dinner. Given the way he could do it was in and I'll invite myself around for the difficulty in Ingean Territory going to him, and if you talk! But it. Well, and simple instructions. We slid for the difficulty in Ingean Territory going to supper, and I'll invite myself around for the humble sausage, and Tom put on a real -ahem- feast. Hit seemed like he was getting it was just born for his daughter.

If a certain gentleman from the north were to come a calling he could expect some rare delights to be cooked up in his honour. He might also expect a night out at Brooklyn's premier English restaurant. If a certain gentleman from the north were to come a calling...

Did you notice that Cumpstey's Butchers are on the list of specialist sausage makers for Norfolk? Fantastic!

First comment: either a) this a new, mystifying, and ineffective type of spam ("Ingean Country"? They want me to buy a copy of Huck Finn?);
b) this site has been visited by Geordies; c) this site has been visited by drunks; or d) Kevin Youklis has slipped has caregiver and is randomly commenting on blogs.

Bowles: can't beat a bit of Cumpstey's- fine sausages, pies, and ham quiche for vegetarians with "hardly any meat in it". The gentleman from the north is coming on Nov 3 as promised, even though he is moving house on Nov 1.

i do love sausage, and now i'm tempted to make my own. i already found a recipe for Chicken Tikka Masala from my favorite cheap Indian restaurant in town earlier tonight, so this is just icing on the cake. perhaps i'll test out Bowles attempts first before having a go at it.

by the way, if you're still around, i think we're having folks over for a NYC marathon party the morning of the 6th to cheer on Handwashings as he passes about 200 feet from our apartment and drink before noon. invitations to come, but anyone who is conscious and still in town after the Saturday night festivites is welcome.

So where in Maine can one find quality English sausages and Pukka Pies?

I must say, I found the posts on English cuisine quite interesting and enjoyed reading about Pukka Pies.

I meant to ask about the Fish Restaurant (Ye Old English Fish and Chip Shoppe) near Fort Andross, run by a Brit, but now under new management. Mary and I used to dine there occasionally.

Jamie- outstanding! I shall extend my break until the Monday.

Jim- I haven't really looked too hard, to be honest. There are some rather agreeable chicken and apple sausages I like but I can't remember who makes them. Country Mouse has mastered the art of the cornish pasty and thus takes care of my pie needs. Maybe the time has come to start a buying collective.

I see a business oportunity here! I shall stop off at the Pukka Pie factory on the way home and buy a gross or two.

Jim: I am informed by an upstanding citizen who we shall refer to as Biopolymer Chris that quality English- and German- sausages can be bought at Morse's Sauerkraut in Waldoboro. Bring a chest cooler.
