SARA GRAZIA – Owner and Managing Director
Sausages Made Simple – Melbourne, Australia
Sara Grazia is considered Australia’s ‘Sausage Queen’ and has been successfully running sausage and charcuterie making courses and workshops all over Australia for several years. She has appeared on Australian television and has written three best-selling books on sausage making as well as producing an instructional DVD on the subject. Sara also has a successful online business for selling everything related to sausage making. She grew up in an Italian household in Australia and was involved in the family sausage making activities from an early age. She spends as much of her free time in Italy, learning techniques from all the over country to make different types of sausage and charcuterie in her premises in Melbourne.
Sara’s goal (now achieved) was to open a ‘Sausage Headquarters’ in Melbourne, Australia, where not only could she produce charcuterie and hold her renowned courses and workshops, but also to offer a selection of genuine Italian products imported directly from Italy. She reached out to Yummy Italy as she was interested in doing some authentic Mortadella tasting – both industrial and artisan. Being a food lover and a professional, she also wanted learn more about the differences between the various types of Balsamic Vinegar (both PDO and PGI) with a view to offering a selection in her store.
