I’m not sure what’s better news, that the culinary folks at the Columbia Area Career Center have fresh sausage for sale (highly recommend the boudin blanc) or that they now have a website of current products? Good stuff all around. More info after the jump.
We will have fresh sausage available Tuesday (7-3), Wednesday (7-12) and Thursday (7-3). Sausage will still be available after Thursday but will be frozen. After this week we will be available normal school hours of operations Monday through Friday, 7-3 for product purchase (It is always best to check with the kitchen before coming out – 573-214-3158)
Also mark your calendars for our Mardi Gras Lunch on February 21st; we will be serving from 10:50 to 1:10 at Rock Bridge in front of the planetarium. We will have our sausages available for sale as well as quarts of our gumbo and other products from the lunch. More Mardi Gras details in early February.
Here are descriptions of our fresh and cured sausage currently available.
