The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.

Plural: chorizos

Language: Spanish

Description: A spicy, dry-cured sausage made of pork, garlic and paprika, flavoured with a sweet, but not particularly hot chilli called choricero. The same name is used in France, particularly in the Pays Basque as well as in Brazil, where it apparently also refers to a good cut of beef steak. There are fatter versions of the sausage which can be sliced and eaten cold like salami or others which are fried or used in stews.
