Who doesn’t love a delicious sausage, snuggled in a bread blanket, laden with onions and mustard and served with a side of hot chips! Alex Talimanidis (formerly of Kostas in Lorne and A La Grecque in Airey’s Inlet) certainly does, as is evidenced in his new venture Le Sausage.
Born from the love of a good snag, Talimanidis, together with girlfriend Laura Thompson, sourced their big red fire truck, and with a whole lot of elbow grease, transformed it into the sizzling sausage-mobile it is today.
The sausages themselves are from Gruner’s Butcher & Deli in St Kilda and were carefully sourced after a rigorous taste-test of the best franks in Melbourne. With five delicious gourmet options on offer – Polish, Hungarian, Chorizo, Hot and Spicy and Italian Pork – and sides including caramelised onion and sauerkraut, it’s a meat lover’s heaven!
The beauty of Le Sausage is that it’s always on the move. They made their debut at Birregurra Farmers’ Market with appearances scheduled for Meredith and Falls Festivals. In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled on their Twitter feed and Facebook page for their whereabouts.
