Proper Sausages Featured on Eater.com!
For the fifth day of The Five Days of Meat, we caught up with Proper Sausages co-owner Freddy Kaufmann, who graduated from the Institute of Culinary Education in Manhattan, and chatted all sausage, filet mignon, smoked bacon and so much more. Adamant about using the highest quality, organic meats available, Kaufmann, who opened the shop with his wife, Danielle, back in 2011, works closely with various farms like Berkwood and Lake Meadow, and sells to local restaurants such as Blue Collar and Essensia. Kaufmann notes their focus is on “feeding people well, and whether they’re cooking for themselves or we’re cooking for them, that starts with how the animals are treated and how they’re fed,” which means these products are quite pricey. For Proper Sausages, though, the goal isn’t to get their items on the menus of any and all Miami eateries, but to find places that share in the shop’s same food ideals and will make proper use of these offerings.
