ABE FROMAN ALIVE AND WELL IN CAIRNS TO EXUBERANT JOY OF FOODIES

A day doesn't go by that we see in the media some group of schmucks giving awards to another group of schmucks.  

The tourism industry is a case on point.  It seems like there are "tourism awards" almost every month - this for an industry that for several years had all-but collapsed.  By what criteria would any tourism business be judged after the tourist numbers had fallen by 60%?  An award for not going bankrupt?

Another group that seems to have all-too-frequent awards are the butchers, and their snags.  These snags and other smallgoods available in Cairns have been shockingly bad.  Sure, sausages are not seen by some as fine meat products, but come'on.  With the large number of Italians in Cairns you'd think we could get a decent piece of salsiccia (however we can't get a decent pizza either, but hey they are 2/$5 with this weeks voucher).  FNQ has been served up junk, and the butchers give themselves awards for it.  Walking past the vile tubes being grilled up in front of Bunnings or Harvey Norman is enough to make any reasonable person retch.  

We've been part of a loose group that has endeavoured to bring back proper sausages from butchers in Brisbane, Sydney, and the smallgoods mecca, Adelaide when any in the group has been traveling.    

Well, sing Hallelujah, a real sausage-maker has arrived and we can't be happier!

With little fanfare, 67-year-old Polish immigrant and former Adelaide Sausage King Stan Ciechanowicz decided he was bored in his tropical retirement, and he's opened to accolades by the sausage-eaters in Cairns.  

And his small factory on Redden Street in Portsmouth has now become the holy grail for Cairns foodies, long deprived of quality products.


WE TAKE NO COMMERCIAL
ADS ON BEHALF OF ANYONE
Polish, German, Greek, Spanish, Italian, or Hungarian - all are on offer, and all are spectacular!

Like any good businessman, Stan said after moving to Cairns that "there was a need for quality, good-value smallgoods in the region".  

No kidding.  






No government funding.  No Advance Cairns. This is business leadership at its best.      


Kochamy cię, Stan!

Great news for Cairns -the best smallgoods in the WORLD come from the Adelaide region. We have wonderful memories of shopping for such delicacies in the Barrossa district. Thanks Stan we will be out to pick up some genuine German, Italian and Spanish sausages. Your prices are a very pleasant surprise too!

How much for shipping from Portsmouth

Anon No. 4 said...

Portsmouth. Cracked me up.

No pork and fennel snags. No Braised hocks (only roasted). We'll see. bratwurst first - always a good test.

This suggestion for Byron Bay should put tourist bed tax back on the agenda. What a great idea, instead of Cairns ratepayers subsidising the tourist industry, they could instead get a net benefit.

We visited Stan this morning. Great place & great people - they really know how to run a shop. Mentioned the Hillbilly Watcher - they didn't know anything about it, but another reader piped up and said she had come in because of the review here. The tasting I did in the shop made it all worthwhile. Another winner!

ruby said...

Hillbilly Watch is being read further and further out into the suburbs, crossing all sorts of social divides. I like to listen quietly with an inscrutable expression to people talk about it.

Good to hear from you shanghai. Wondered where you've been. Flat out like Newman sacking public servants and coppers, I dare say.

off topic but wanking talks about red tape in the police force the reason is a little inquirey called the fitzs and a man called lewis run by joh, it was put there to stop all of that but newman is getting rid of it so here we go again

Jethro said...

Wanking wasn't in Queensland in the run up to or during the Fitzgerald Inquiry, Anonymous 20.33. He would have been running around NSW in a shit filled pair of training pants and crying for Mummy at the time. Just like he didn't have a clue why we ceased dredging of the Cairns Inlet in the 1980s, he doesn't have a clue why the Police Force was structured like it was. What disgusts me is the ruthless way in which those senior coppers are being disposed of, like they are rubbish. This is typical of LNP thinking and behaviour however. I've seen it all before and we will see it again on a bigger scale when Abbott becomes PM.

ruby said...

Jethro, I, too, feel for the senior cops who are being treated with so much contempt by the Newman Government. Frankly, it makes me very very uneasy as to what the LNP are trying to do. They are wiping out a lot of experience and bringing in a lot of young rookies. This just doesn't make sense, and I keep on thinking there is a covert political agenda behind it all.

See where the hospitals are copping the axe now, big time. Came across some fuckwits at Christmas time who loftily said the Newman Government would never sack nurses and doctor. OH YEAH?

Agree Jethro but not with the mad monk being PM that would put Australia in deep trouble Australian do not deserve that
