Newest Recipe:Homemade Sausage

Making Sausage at home

Photos by Jon Feldman
Winter is here and bigger projects are perfect for long cold day. Here we make two types of homemade sausage with two types of meat. There are endless styles and flavors and this is a good start for both technique and experimentation.

 The quick link for the Muffaletta is here, and the olive salad as well. Here you will find the Oyster-Artichoke Bisque.

And here's the group (minus the photographer). All with extensive N.O. dining experiences.
