In its essence, the Master Chef Sausage Series is a partnership between Robbie’s Gourmet Sausage Co. and WindsorEats that will attempt to elevate the craft of sausage making while shining a spotlight on the culinary artistry of Southern Ontario’s most talented and imaginative gastronomists.
The recipes for these links will come from a place of culture, personal history, daring creativity and originality. More importantly however, these collaborations are meant to highlight the epicurean talent that’s been hiding in the backs of hot, hectic kitchens where too many have sacrificed long days and so much more for the love of their craft.
Each chef has worked with Robbie on a unique sausage with flavours that represent their skills and passion. Each creation will only be available a for a month inside Robbie’s Gourmet Sausage Co. shop.

Description of your sausage?
Conceptually speaking, the Cadillac Mac is a connection to a favourite childhood memory, Kraft Dinner, to our more educated adult palates. Hence, the Mac n Cheese is paired with naturally smoked bacon and jalapenos.
What influenced you in making the flavours of this sausage?
“To be inspired is to be given a gift.”
I, Robbie, hereby declare that I am no Master Chef nor am I a Master Sausage Maker. I consider myself a self taught craftsman with an insatiable quench to create and learn. Since the start of the Master Chef Sausage Series, I have gleaned a lot from these incredibly talented and creative chefs. I have been taught much and I’ve been inspired twice as much. The special Master Chef Sausage that I am releasing is purely an homage to the depth and creativity of those who have inspired me. All credit should go to Chef Phil Octavien, Chef Dave Dimoglou, Chef Josh Fraser, Chef Nav Sehmbi and Chef John Alvarez.
A recipe that pairs with/uses your sausage?
There is no specific recipe for the Cadillac Mac. It’s creaminess is to be savoured all on its own. Instead, Robbie has provided some tips on how to cook the perfect sausage.
