Why? Sausages are quite simply one of the most versatile foods. After a recent program on BBC2 it became clear that finding good quality sausages was not always easy. The site began from a small mailing list which, as the numbers swelled, caused the site to be set up in order to share recipes, cooking tips, and details of where the best sausages are to be had.
