11:30 Guest chef Phil Russ
Blackball on the West Coast started out as a small gold settlement which burst into the national consciousness in 1908 when coal miners secured a half hour lunch break for all miners across the country. It was here the New Zealand Labour party was born. Today it's on the tourist track for a beer at the Blackball Hilton and to stock up on cold meats at the shop.
Phil Russ owns Blackball Salamis with his wife Debbie. They make and sell at least 10 different types of salami and 15 different kinds of sausages. They also do a cracking trade in black pudding.
Phil Russ discusses The Blackball Salami Company and their artisan old school salamis, sausages and black puddings, and how to make sausages at home.
