I’ve never really covered food on the blog, I’m not sure why as I love it (clearly I do if you’ve seen photos of me), I’m also a massive advocate of a family meal as well, which whilst its tough if you are a working family, its important to try and make time where possible. Clonakilty Food Company recently got in touch to see if we’d like to taste their new Clonakilty Ispini Sausages (and a few other products) and to see if our family we be just as impressed with them as much as they are.
Clonakilty Food Company shares its name (and is also based) with the town of Clonakilty in West Cork, Ireland. Renowned for their famous Black Pudding and using a recipe which dates back to the town in the 1880s, Clonakilty took ownership of the secret recipe from the town in 1980s as Blackpudding became more popular in both Ireland and the UK.
Over recent years, Clonakilty have introduced White Pudding, Bacon and now Sausages, all using premium Irish Pork and in the case of the Black Pudding (Beef).
We were sent a hamper which included their Ispini Sausages, Black Pudding and also White Pudding as well as several other groceries. That said we wasted no time in replacing our usual sausages in favour of the Ispini when cooking a family favourite of Bangers and Mash.
