Sausages at Los Paisanos
We are on tenterhooks.
Per instructions from my favourite butcher, I went in to Los Paisanos today taking the recipe Warren had recommended, and spoke to Mike Affronti, the owner, and not the aforementioned butcher I spoke to whom I spoke other day...
Mike looked the recipe over, said he needed to make a call to 'a guy' about the sausage, and said he hoped to have good news for me. He took my phone number.
I've just emailed him a little boerewors backstory plus picture to try and explain just what this sausage means to a South African, and basically that if you cut our chests open you don't find a heart, but a coil of boerewors inside (that could explain a lot about South Africa). But mainly that if he started selling boerewors his shop is going to become a Mecca for braai-starved South Africans.
And since a Dubai-based commenter tells me they have a butcher in DUBAI who ships boerewors to their doors, I'm like, We have got to get it going in Brooklyn.
Please, a moment of silence. Think of sausage. Think of glowing coals. Think of a still summer evening. Think of fragrant smoke wisping skywards as a raucous hadeda flies over the garden, Wahahaha, Wahahaha.
If you dream it, you can eat it.
