Sausage. A summer barbecue staple or a morning breakfast. However you eat these meaty delights, hopefully they turn out totally tasty. Making these grilled links may seem simple, but making the best of the bratwurst is truly a culinary art form. For the curious and eager, come learn how to make your own bangers (hold the mash) on Sunday, April 5 at 4932 Shady Leaf Way in Sacramento. This workshop is hosted by Scratch Made Life, a spot created by Kim Mack in the hopes to share her enthusiasm for cooking from scratch with those also ready to expand their yummy knowledge in the kitchen. With various and delectable meats, seasonings, cheeses and fruits, attendees will master the methods of producing the tastiest sausage without filler or organ meat. From 10 a.m.–1 p.m., Scratch Made Life alumni Cyndi Seybold will be teaching frankfurter fans how to not only stuff sausage into casings (with the option of leaving them loose), but will be instructing on the techniques of accurately smoking your fresh made sausages. At the very end of the lesson, all students will get to divide the sausages to take home. For $40, you will be given the ability to learn how to perfectly make these meaty morsels.
