Black pudding, Morcilla, Boudin Noir, Blutwurst whatever you wish to call them, they have been part of our food heritage for thousands of years. Yet today here in the UK they are made from a dried blood powder mix, this being produced from indoor reared pigs from the Netherlands, Belgium and Scandinavia.
You know a good start up business for someone is to procure all the blood from an abottoir and sell & deliver it to individual black pudding producers.

Where to buy the book “Le Charcutier Anglais”.
Marc-Frederic has thought long and hard as to where he should retail his book, the larger online bookstores were the first to show an interest, some of them were dictating the terms on price and how it should be sold. Some of them had already priced it up on their websites at a price less than wholesale even without his knowing, a bit like the supermarket power.
That approach alone was enough for him to decide he would choose to go the scenic route and retail his book via the many farm shops, cookery schools, small online businesses and all other similar good foody orientated stores and places of interest we have in this country.
The pleasure of the thought that someone is browsing a copy of his book in a small shop where the shopkeeper appreciates both the book and the additional business it may bring. Also the interaction between the storekeeper and purchaser who may discuss the contents of his book rewards him with fulfilment.
If you know of such a small business that may like to stock the book, then please do let us know, hopefully we can add it to the list below.
Castle Bookshop Ludlow, Shropshire
www.waterstones.co.uk U.K. over 40 shops
The Kew Bookshop Kew, Richmond Surrey
