Quiz: What is “black pudding?” (No, it is not a dessert.) It is actually a type of sausage traditionally eaten in Ireland and the United Kingdom. It turns out that each country has its own take on sausages, with their own history, methods of creation and flavors. While sausages were historically a way to use the leftovers, the scraps, from various cuts of meat, today they’re something different. They are now their own culinary stars, and have taken on a life of their own. There are so many types of sausages — bratwurst, salami, summer sausage — and different methods of creation. The only way to find out which kind you like best is to experiment. Luckily, we in Buffalo have many creators of delicious, artisanal sausage. They taste great thrown on a grill, or fried up with peppers and onions, or chopped and mixed into pasta. There are countless ways to work them into tasty meals.
