Product of the Month: Creake Abbey Salami

Lisa Scothern, head butcher at Creake Abbey Cafe & Food Hall

Our head butcher Lisa has been busy! One of the few British charcutiers, Lisa has been making sticks and rings of our own Creake Abbey saucisson and chorizo, just in time for Christmas. Both have been cured to be quite a soft, tender sausage.The saucisson has a very soft and gentle flavour, with the flavour of the pork being dominant. The chorizo has a little more fire in its belly with plenty of Spanish spice and a great peppery kick.


Lisa has also been making snack-sized chorizo, made to the same recipe plus snack-sized venison and red wine salami, using fallow deer from the Holkham estate. Plus, after much demand we have Biltong again – the peppery South African snack, made using whole pieces of traditional British breed beef.


The chorizo is great eaten as an aperitif with an accompanying glass of red wine, such as a smoky Spanish Rioja. All of the snack salamis go really well with a glass of beer. Tom’s favourite combo is a piece of biltong and a bottle of Yetman’s Red beer from our Food Hall ….bliss!
