Paul’s Inspiration

When I was 6 years old, my father started a little butcher shop in a fibro block of shops. I can never forget the delicious aroma of the shop – I could still smell it clinging to Dad’s clothes when he came home each night – the mix of pine smoke, spices, cooked ham and bacon. I used to watch my Mum serving customers while Dad made the Gourmet European sausages – products like Cevapcici, Kranski, Krakawurst and German Frankfurts. I remember the smiles on the customer’s faces in that shop when they would try a sample and then buy their meat and the smallgoods that my Dad had made.

In my first year of school I dressed up as a Butcher for every single ‘Fancy Dress Day’ – I would walk to school dressed in a Butcher’s apron, coat and big wellington boots, with a two metre length of cocktail frankfurts wrapped around my neck and arms!! Even at six years of age I knew what I truly wanted to be when I grew up – the best Butcher / Smallgoodsman in Australia!!

School holidays were always spent helping Mum and Dad at the Butcher shop. I would wash tubs, mincer plates, and display trays. My favourite job was to help Dad mix the sausage meat by hand and then link the sausages. It was hard work but I remember how much I loved it.

Two apprenticeships later and I am qualified in the Trade of General Butchering and the youngest qualified Continental Smallgoods maker in Australia. I am a four time State Champion Sausage maker, and a National Award winning Sausage maker – crowned Sausage King of Australia. I am good at what I do and take great pride in my trade. I am an innovator in taste sensations and I am driven by the challenge of the products I have yet to create.

The passion continues!
