How to Throw a Sausagefest Party – Yellow Fever!!.–a post by The Arrogant Swine
THAI – Thailand loves it’s sausages. The one thing I really love about Thai sausages is the use of fresh herbs and spices in the mix. Here’s 2 of the major ones.
Sai Oua – A Northern Sausage. My wife is Thai and this is one of my top 5 favorite sausages. The texture isn’t necessarily my favorite but the flavors are amazing. You get a mixture of cured, fermented, and freshness flavors. It’s seasoned with lemongrass, kaffir and red curry paste which is as fantastic as a sausage could ever hope for.
Sai Grok – This sausage stems from Northeastern Issan region. Hope you love garlic. Full Judo chop full of garlic in every bite!
P.S. for our sausagefest, I bought a pack of Thai sausage from this chef and found it to be really authentic. If you’re in NY, and you’re looking for an authentic Isan sausage, you should definitely reach this man somehow.

“Growing up in Thailand, massage and other healing arts were taught and applied in the monasteries and within the family. In families it has been mainly an oral tradition. It was part of my culture to use massage as a caring method. I remembered stepping on my parents back to help relieve tension since I was five years old. I strongly believe in helping others improve health and well-being through therapeutic touch and healing treatments.”–Namtip
