A visit to meat heaven (aka Spar's European Sausage Shop)

Christa Glennie Seychew

I've been a fan of Spar's European Sausage & Meats for several years now, and have had the privilege of documenting their growth in many arenas. As a foodie I rely on this shop for terrific staples like bacon, merguez (which I wrote about in the March 2011 issue of Spree), and calabrese. But what I love most about Spar's is that on nearly every visit I discover something new. When I took WKBW's cameras with me earlier this week I learned that chef and owner Joe Kennedy is now making his own head cheese, a real delicacy when made with care, from local pork supplied by the impeccable T-Meadow Farm.

After years of being off the radar, Amherst Street is now becoming a food Mecca, of sorts, and Spar's can be credited for leading the pack on that trend, setting a high bar for authenticity and quality in food preparation within its neighborhood. If you haven't been yet, you really should go.
