[Zurich] Andouillette - where to buy?

Hi there,

I'd like to find andouillette here in Zürich (its a kind of sausage, it's French, it's made with the insides of a hog, but not mashed like most sausages, in big pieces... needs a good amount of mustard) - not that I fancy it particularly but... it's for a birthday

Any idea?

No idea ... but now I know what I'll eat this weekend ! That's been a long time ... and as I live in the French-speaking part it should be easier for me to find.

Good luck with your quest :-)

I had one once when I was living in France and I will never have one again. It was disgusting.

Re: [Zurich] Andouillette - where to buy?

hi Celine, back in a previous life when I ate things like saucisson, I used to visit a shop in Kuttelgasse called Pretot. It's a butcher's with many Romande and French products. I don't remember seeing andouillette there, but the website says they stock them:

Hope you have a lovely birthday celebration

Re: [Zurich] Andouillette - where to buy?

I remember having some US colleagues visiting in France, taking them out for lunch, and them asking to eat "something very typical, that you can only eat in France" ... guess what they got in their plates ! :-)

One of them almost threw up when I explained what he was eating, now when I have the same kind of request from foreign visitors I take them to a fondue or raclette place, it's safer.

BTW tried to look for andouillette in Globus / Lausanne but couldn't find any, I'll have to dig around to see what I can find.

Re: [Zurich] Andouillette - where to buy?

I went into the Auchan in Cognac today and there they were....they even look vile, so I can get them if needed.

France does great things with duck, the honey roast rabbit you get here is just fab' (never tell kids your eating Thumper though...starts a riot )and the best porc I've ever tasted, but andouillette.....dog food .

Re: [Zurich] Andouillette - where to buy?

Holy cr@p - I went to Mulhouse at the weekend and, being an adventurous eater, I thought I'd try Andouillette

Does anybody actually eat this for enjoyment? Or is it just a bet?? The taste and texture are pretty repugnant, but the smell of it puts those two things in the shade! I'll just take tarte flambee next time I'm in the Alcase!

Good question.

I'll eat many strange things (hell, I actually LIKE Surstroemming ), but I've always been afraid to try Andoillette!

Re: [Zurich] Andouillette - where to buy?

I can eat nearly anything (Even brains and eyeballs) but tripe and Andouillette are disgusting.
The last time I (tried) to eat an Andouillette was in Paris in late April 1955. A memorable occasion!

Did you see the ingredients: pork intestines, pig stomach, onions, salt, spices
the sausage is filled with bits of pork intestine and pork stomach. If the stomach is not washed correctly it will stink!

The French seem to like them.

We lived in Lyon for a number of years and it was readily available in the 'bouchons' there. The smell if somebody nearby was eating it was enough to right put you off your dinner.

The smell was almost enough to put my wife off her marriage.

"It smells like you are eating ass", she memorably said. I didn't have the heart to tell her......

Anyway, maybe we can tag on a tasting to LiB's next KFC expedition - after that, even a big bucket would appeal to me

Tripe is NOT disgusting, if fact it's quite nice (and has no strange smell, unlike andouillete). In fact it's what we had for my birthday dinner the other day!

I like Matjes Herring, but I have never seen or smelt the Surströmming.

In 1981 a German landlord evicted a tenant without notice after the tenant spread surströmming brine in the apartment building's staircase. When the landlord was taken to court, the court ruled that the termination was justified when the landlord's party demonstrated their case by opening a can inside the courtroom. The court concluded that it "had convinced itself that the disgusting smell of the fish brine far exceeded the degree that fellow-tenants in the building could be expected to tolerate."
German food critic and author Wolfgang Fassbender wrote that "the biggest challenge when eating Surströmming is to vomit only after the first bite, as opposed to before.... "

Of course Globus would not have it...they only sell real food.

I remember the first time I had andouillette. We were having lunch with my wife's grandmother on our way back to Angers. I looked at the menu and said "yeah, that looks great". And mind you, I can read french. The only problem I had was that I assumed that Andouillette and Andouille were the same thing.

What a surprise to get half way through the meal at which time I admit to my wife that this sausage is not the same as other andouilles that I have had before. After a short sidebar...I suddenly am through with dinner.

What does it mean to admit that i liked it up until I knew what it was?
