Product description

Our Cotechino sausage is perfect for two people to share, this classic Italian sausage requires long, slow simmering to break down the gelatinous cuts from which it is made - namely pig's cheek.

We make our Cotechino sausages with the same quality pork we use for our whole muscle cuts; free range Middle White and Tamworth, traditional heritage breeds with exceptional depth of flavour.


50:50 blend of pork shoulder & full cheek (98%), continental curing salts, ground black pepper, ground nutmeg seed, ground mace. Filled into 100% natural casings.

This product is naturally free of gluten. 

cooking advice

Simmer for 80-90 minutes, ideally with fresh stock vegetables & herbs including carrot, onion, garlic & celery, bay leaf, thyme & black peppercorns.

Once cooked remove the skin, slice and serve - it has a wonderfully luscious mouthfeel and is perfect sliced over lentils or with other boiled meats in a classic bollito misto.
