Growing in French countryside, in a region well known for the quality of its cured meats (Ardèche), butchering a pig and making your own Saucisson Sec and other charcuterie products is a tradition in every local family, and I had the chance to be part of that all my childhood.
Saucisson Sec for French people is like a baguette or a camembert, you will find some in every single household.
After moving permanently to Australia in 2009 it wasn't long (like any French person down here) before I was craving for Saucisson Sec. I decided to go on a “quest” to find some. It was difficult but I finally found some and started my own business to share it with the French community and French food lovers in Brisbane.
But over time, I was unhappy with the consistency and taste so after a few months I decided to have my own range.
Our Saucisson Sec are made locally following traditional French recipes and savoir faire passed on in my family. They are made using local 100 % certified free range pork from Gooralie Farm, Goondiwindi, QLD.
Now we have a large list of products like Spanish chorizos, Australian cheese, French pates and rillettes, and the list goes on and on. But, although our list has expanded, let us tell you that our goal is still the same: “Create experiences that brings people closer. With our products we are confident that you'll be able to create the perfect gathering. It's not just about the food - it's about sharing and caring."
Sharing a meal is one of the most intimate and rewarding experiences we can have, and we are passionate about creating the perfect atmosphere to make that happen. Whether you're enjoying a picnic in the park or hosting a dinner party at home, my food is sure to bring people together and create long lasting memories.
