Kia ora, I’m Don and I am a carnivore loving eater of meat. In particular I am very fond of sausages. This blog will give my views on sausages. I am based in Wellington, New Zealand. This blog will be Wellington centric, and the sausages reviewed will reflect this.
I have been a sausage dealer, but I was not very entrepreneurial. A long time ago decent sausages were hard to obtain. I used to get them freighted from the Blackball Salami Company. My biggest order was for 50kg. I then sold these sausages to friends. I had no problem moving the sausages. My business acumen could be questioned, I sold them at cost and did not have a percentage mark up. As time as past, some shops in Wellington now have a wide array of sausages.
I have had the pleasure of sampling some of New Zealand’s top sausages as a judge in the Devro Great New Zealand Sausage Competition. Spending time sampling and discussing the relative merits of sausages with butchers, chefs and like minded foodies makes for a great experience – for both the mind and the taste buds.
I do make my own sausages, I regard this as a hobby. People have wanted to know where they can buy sausages I have made, after some consideration I have decided not make sausages for sale. I do on ocassion give them away.
Enjoy the sausage eating.
A highlight for me was as a judge in the Devro NZ Sausage Competition.
Back in 2012, I decided it would be a good idea to begin writing down my thoughts on sausages, meat, beer, and life. So I started up a blog on blogspot. This served it’s purpose and I take great joy in watching the hit count on my site increase.
In 2015, it reached the point where it was time to begin taking things seriously, and I began to investigate into purchasing a domain name and getting a site designed. And here we are. You’re looking at it!
