Oxford sausage - should it go into the Ark of Taste?


we had the BBQ wonderfully orchestrated by Ian and Ruth:

3 sausages, 2 butchers and 1 Ian, 3 recipes, 3 different appearances, 3 remarquably different taste and texture

worth saving: definitely, especially now that you can find veal that meets animal welfare requirements!


please share your knowledge on the matter: the butcher that still does it, the recipes you've heard of, the restaurants that would serve it...
