Bouding Noir , Blood Sausage... Where to buy in/around Montreal.
I'm looking for a butcher shop or charcuterie that makes a very good Boudin Noir ( Blood Sausage) in the great Montreal area.
since now I have only had the generic supermarket boudin. it`s about time I try something a little better. ( or a lot better ??)
thanks for your help
You should check out La Queue De Cochon. They make a very good boudin noir and boudin aux pommes. They also make something called boudin créole, but I've never tried it. QdC is on Plaza St-Hubert just south of Beaubien next to Délires du terroir. You can also buy their products at Le Formentier on Laurier East and at Marché St-Jacques in Centre-Sud.
Theres a few different types of blood sausage out there, usually based on nationality.
Theres a few more scraps of info here
Since returning from Spain a few years ago, I'm always on the lookout for their version of morcilla. A rice laced blood sausage, but never seem to find it either.
A friendly Portuguese lady I met at a slaughterhouse gave me a recipe that I'd like to try. However, getting fresh pigs blood AND being ready to make sausage is somewhat ardous.
We'll be jaunting around town assembling items for our xmas meal. If we come across any house-made boudin, I'll report back.
Ditto Slovenia. First encountered it at Bouchonné last year -- http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/4675... -- and was so impressed I had to ask the chef about its origins. Contact info: 3653 St-Laurent, 514 842-3558.
Leméac's boudin is unlike any other but way delicious. What's more, it's on their late night special menu.
Since it was more or less on my way home this morning, I stopped by Slovenia to buy some boudin. Of course I walked out with a lot more than I went in for, but did manage to get some boudin noir and some blutwurst. I fried up the boudin for breakfast and OMG is it ever rich! It probably contains as much fatback as blood, maybe more. It was really gourgeous, though. Really velvetty. It could use a bit more four-spice powder if you ask me, but it's still a great product.
