Aux Delices des Bois is premiering a line of nine varieties of fresh sausage in booth #4214. They’re all natural, certified humanely raised with no antibiotics or hormones. The animals are fed a vegetarian diet. Charcutier Charles Ventre is Brooklyn-born and raised. “in Brooklyn, it’s a social event when you shop for food. It’s personal, and so the sausage I developed is born of that social process. A lot of people who’ve lived in Brooklyn tell me that they taste our sausage, and it tastes like home.”
The fresh sausages are very unlike anything else in the market, in that they adhere to the traditions of the Brooklyn pork store, according to Ventre. “You just cook them, put them in your hand and eat it,” Ventre says. “You don’t need anything else with it. They stand on their own.”
Aux Delices des Bois is also offering a full line of charcuterie, bacons and butters. Each of these products has won a sofi award, “and we won a Good Food Award for 2013 for our Spanish-Style Chorizo,” Ventre says.
