Were opening a deli shop in France with sausages as one of our specialities, unfortunatley we cant make them ourselves due to legislation so would so much like to find a supplier who can make recipies for us with French produce. Please help save us and our neighbours from the one choice only sausage market we live in here, Coopers

What i'm saying is, instead of trying to find a British butcher in France, find a French butcher who will make sausages to your specification. If necessary, provide him with the spice mixtures and detailed method for making these sausages.

The pork sold in most French butchers is usually locally sourced and outdoor reared, so it might be a bit "porky" for folk raised on British meat. The spices and herbs used will be the same, but in different proportions, and the sausage have no rusk, so they require more care while cooking them than most Brits lavish on their bangers, if they are not to end up dry.
