|It's amazing what a few extra letters can do to food.|
|This isn't the actual dish, but it looked very similar to this.|
So what is this dish I ordered?
"Andouillette (French pronunciation: [ɑ̃dujɛt]) is a coarse-grained sausage made with pork (or occasionally veal), intestines or chitterlings, pepper, wine,onions, and seasonings. Tripe, which is the stomach lining of a cow, is sometimes an ingredient in the filler of an andouillette, but it is not the casing or the key to its manufacture. True andouillette will be an oblong tube. If made with the small intestine, it is a plump sausage generally about 25 mm in diameter but often it is much larger, possibly 7–10 cm in diameter, and stronger in scent when the colon is used. True andouillette is rarely seen outside France and has a strong, distinctive odor related to its intestinal origins and components. Although sometimes repellant to the uninitiated, this aspect of andouillette is prized by its devotees." - Wikipedia
To say it has a strong, distinctive odor is an understatement. If you think I am exaggerating about this, I have found other blogs (The Grubworm and Things That Stink) that will back my description of this item. One of the blogs was called "Andouillette or... The Dish of Death". So when ordering food in another country, know that a few extra letters can change an entire meal.
