Who would have thought foods such as pumpkin, feta and chives would ever be put into a sausage, let alone taste so good.

A humble and versatile ingredient, the sausage can be used in many different ways. To name a few - barbecued, fried, curried, made into Toad in the Hole, in pastas, devilled, made into sausage rolls and hot dogs.

Supreme Winner Sausage Competition

Akaroa Butchery & Deli

Boudin Noir

Supreme winner Boudin Noir is a well-crafted, perfectly balanced sausage with a beyond sensational texture. I encourage all Kiwis to go out and give this one a go. Add to a potato dish, use in a savoury tart or pan-fry and crumb over soup.
