      Sausage + Cider Festival

      By: Sara Grazia

      Spring has definitely arrived here in old Melbourne town. The sun is breaking through the last of the winter clouds, bathing the city in glorious sunshine (in between the wet weather days – it is Melbourne after all, 4 seasons in one day and all of that!!)

      This spring we will be celebrating everything SAUSAGE with The Last Jar Irish Pub in Melbourne at their Sausage + Cider Taste Festival. It’s going to be an exciting afternoon ( come rain, hail or shine) full of sausage and cider tasting, a fresh sausage making demonstration with me - be inspired for your next barbeque feast with quick and easy to make sausage recipes and all the sausage and cider you can eat and drink.
