(Cardiff) - Calabrese
We made a
recent family trip to Cardiff, and
in town in one of the many arcades
we found Wally's, a well renowned
deli selling all sorts of
continental "foody" delights, and
netted some Gorno's Calabrese
sausages to try.
Gorno's is a well established
specialist in high quality pepperoni
and continental sausages, cured meat
products and charcuterie in South
Wales. Well given their win of
the UK Great Taste Award 2012 ...
we're going in!
These Calabrese (spicy calabrian)
boasted 100% pork with chilli and
fennel, all vacuum packed up and
looking very different from our
usual loose sausage purchases from
our "normal" retailers.
Incidentally the packaging does look
very similar to those sausages that
our friends at
over in the
on packaging...cooked up a firm deep
coloured sausage as you would expect
with a high percentage meat.
The skins were pretty good but
perhaps not natural, however
sausages with no added fats or
water, gluten free and also free
from artificial colours and
phosphates did interest us...
The bite was firm and the chew was
delightful to be honest.
Bordering on pepperoni firmness.
Taste-wise, yes bring on the fennel
and chilli! Lovely without
being instant heartburn thankfully.
We sliced them up with a simple
pasta and tomato sauce, and enjoyed
Certainly a sausage worth trying
yourselves if you get a chance.
