Welcome back to Spotlight Sunday! This week we’re shining the light on a food producer from Cashel in Co.Tipperary. Introducing The Butcher’s Daughter! They produce a range of artisan food products. In their range they have, Traditional Butcher Sausages, Speciality Varieties and Puddings. We tried out two of their speciality varieties, the Smoked Bacon & Cheese Sausages along with the Sun dried Tomato & Basil Sausages. Here’s how we got on…
While we liked the packaging, we felt as if the material of the box could have been a bit stronger. The box itself got a little squashed in our shopping bags. However we did like the feeling of the material & the branding. The colour scheme was apt for each product and its great to see so much of the actual sausages on display in the packs. Lots of relevant information was provided as well as information on how to contact them and their social media!
We followed the cooking instructions. We grilled the sausages under a preheated medium heat grill for about 14-15 minutes, turning them occasionally.
Rating – The DEMC Food Scale!
Appearance – Aesthetically pleasing, both raw and on cooking. Although the sausages looked a little greasy,they didn’t feel that way. The sausages showed off their individual components through vibrancy of colour and even dispersion throughout. They definitely looked good enough to eat and we had difficulty stopping people taking them before we could take their picture. 4.5/5
Taste – The smoked bacon and cheese sausages were smoky and porky, not a strong flavour from the cheese. The strong flavour from the bacon slightly overpowered the cheese. The sun dried tomato and basil sausages had a well balanced Mediterranean flavour, good seasoning and were succulent and moist. 4/5
Smell – The kitchen was filled with the aroma of these sausages sizzling in the oven. There was a strong savoury pork aroma from the Smoked Bacon and Cheese sausages. The Sundried Tomato and Basil sausages had aromatic herby notes. and definitely appealed to the senses. 4/5
Easy to Use – We could imagine eating and sharing these sausages on a summer night straight from the hot coals of a barbecue or as comfort food on a cold winters evening. Sunday morning breakfasts just got upgraded! 5/5
Overall DEMC Food Rating is….4.375 !!!
