British style Sausage and Bacon.

I've been selling dry cured back bacon, made by an English chef here in Zurich for a few months now. He has now just delivered his first batch of Pork sausages. I had them for breakfast Sunday and they are very meaty and hardly any fat ran from them.

Price for the sausages is CHF 35.00 / Kg. They are frozen and vacuum packed in 4's and 6's.

If they sell well enough he will expand the range to make a herby one, pork and leak and maybe a pork and apple.

We only stock them at the Viadukt Markthalle in Zurich, trams 4 and 13 stop outside at Dammweg.

I guess I'll have to start stocking brown sauce soon too .

Re: British style Sausage and Bacon.

Four of them sat in a spicy casserole before my lunch today. Now there are only two. Very tasty.

Re: British style Sausage and Bacon.

Original blue Yorkie and original flavour CANS of lucozade and you'll have a few new weekly customers. Can never find Lucozade in Orel Füssli anymore, and the London Store in Zug is as reliable as our weather back home, if even still going.

Is that the Yorkshire Blue cheese? I do regularly stock Swaledale Blue. No space for Lucozade though, I thought Jelmoli stocked it (as well as britshop.ch), and I heard that the London Store had been closed down.

Re: British style Sausage and Bacon.

Just yesterday I was telling my German housemates they need to taste some 'real' sausages . I hope to come visit you soon...I probably won't be able to resist a nice bit of bacon either, or some good British cheese. This could turn into an expensive trip.

Re: British style Sausage and Bacon.

Good stuff GG, will have to stop in and pick some up! In the absence of HP, I might see how well spicy chutney works on a sausage and bacon butty....

Can't even bring myself to try the blutwurst here - just doesn't even look the same ..... more limp than a semi- , not properly sheaved, with the girth of a weenie ...... and probably lacks the correct spicing and fat lumps.

Re: British style Sausage and Bacon.

Yeah, but my point was that GG said he might have to start selling it - so til he does, I'll take a chutney instead

Re: British style Sausage and Bacon.

Damned shame I missed the original post, as unfortunately Grumpy is no longer stocking bacon and sausages dues to low demand.

Can anyone recommend an alternative source for UK style sausages (preferably Kanton of Zuerich)?

Re: British style Sausage and Bacon.

I thought I'd revive this thread as I am once again giving sausages and bacon a go (I first starting stocking them over 6 years ago but sales weren't good enough to warrant the freezer space).

I'm working with Meatpoint in Lausanne, they're a butcher company of South African origin but they also produce English style Sausages and Bacon. I won't be carrying their whole range (to see it you need to register on their site here) but at the moment I have:

Dry cured Back Bacon 250gr packs (either thick slices - about 8 - or thin, about 15 or 16 slices) for 13.95 a pack

Sausages: Cumberland (herby), Old Scottish (more peppery) or Boerwors. 400gr packs - 6 sausages also for 13.95 a pack. We fried some of the Scottish ones up on Saturday at the market and they are delicious, meaty and not too fatty. They went down a treat with Picallili.

My prices are about 10% more than theirs but you don't have to pay for postage (or wait for the postman) and you can enjoy a beer or slice of cheese with me when you come to collect.

Other flavours of sausages they make are Garlic Supreme, Irish Breakfast, Hunters Feast (with venison and boar), Moroccan, Pork & Leek and Spicy Lamb. If there's enough interest I might stock some of these next month.

I also have some bags of their excellent Biltong to go or to enjoy with a beer at my bar here.

You can get them now at the British Cheese Centre, Markthalle im Viadukt, Limmatstrasse 231, 8005 Zürich.
