A VALENTINE’S DAY sizzler is being promised by a Moray butcher who has designed a special banger in time for February 14.
Forres-based Macbeth’s are hoping their latest creation will go down a storm with more than a few romantic dinners with their special treat – the idea of game dealer and owner Jock Gibson.
Using their award-winning pork sausage recipe as a base, Jock and his team have created a Valentine’s Sausage which is packed with white chocolate and chilli – both aphrodisiacs which apparently are guaranteed to add a bit of sweet and spice to the evening!
Jock explained: “This is the ideal treat for Valentine’s Day – they say the way to a person’s heart is through their stomach, so we have built on that idea and created something really sensational.
“Sausages are dead easy to cook, so whoever buys them will not only be able to dazzle their loved one with a beautiful yet affordable meal, but knowing they went to the trouble to buy our special Valentine’s Day sausages, is sure to get them extra brownie points.
“The succulent meat combined with the sweet chocolate perfectly balances the chillies which add a bit of heat and fire, prefect for Valentine’s Day.
“It took a bit of research to decide which ingredients we would use – there are actually quite a lot of aphrodisiacs out there, but not all of them would have worked with a pork sausage. Then we tinkered with the quantities and have definitely come up with something that will add a spark.”
The Forres firm have become well known for producing quality goods – and for adding a bit of fun to the dinner tables of Moray.
