Head Chef at four star hotel, Careys Manor, has been working closely with local butcher, Chris Watson to produce a New Forest sausage which is now being featured, alongside many other locally sourced products, on its exceptional breakfast menu.
Chris Watson, from Chris Watson Family Butchers, comments:
“Chris, the Head Chef at Careys, and I have spent time carefully developing a new sausage for the hotel’s breakfast menu. We came up with several different ideas before picking one which perfectly complements the exceptional English Breakfast that they serve in all the restaurants at the hotel. The Careys Manor Breakfast Sausage was devised from my Award-winning Pennington Porker sausage and I’m delighted to say the feedback has been extremely good!”
A delicious and subtle blend of Hampshire Free Range Pork, sage based seasoning, a hint of garlic and a couple of ‘secret’ ingredients, the finished result is a sausage which delivers a full bodied meat content with great texture and delicate flavours.
“We approached Chris Watson because his family butchery has a great reputation throughout the New Forest and fits with our policy of sourcing locally and sourcing the best. Breakfast is an essential part of a guest’s experience and can become overshadowed by a venues focus on delivering an exceptional evening dining experience. In my opinion the breakfast has to reflect the star rating of the hotel as much as the evening menu which is why every single element of our full cooked breakfast is considered both individually and as part of a whole. The sausage we are now serving, which is produced by Chris Watson, meets every culinary expectation and we’re really pleased to be working alongside another local producer.”
