As a boy I never would have chosen blood sausage. I was happy just eating burgers and hot dogs. Now that I’m a bit older – OK, a lot older – I’m also a bit more open to trying new things. At Ron Gastrobar in Amsterdam, the Michelin starred restaurant where I tried foie gras before, there was also a dish f cauliflower, blood sausage and cheese.
I found the dish to be outstanding. All the elements really complimented each other. On its own however, I felt the blood sausage a bit bland and nondescript. That doesn’t mean I didn’t like it, I just expected a stronger flavor. I will have to try some blood sausage again on its own. I will let you know how I get one.
