France keeps its AAAAA

January 21st, 2012 | Posted by admin in French Food

Well, I know what you read last weeks about France loosing her AAA. Maybe,it’s true… In fact I don’t even know, I am everything but an economist.

But I love French food and I love a very specific sausage called Andouillette ! And I am sure that S&P didn’t remove the AAAAA to the French Andouillette.

Andouillette is a pork sausage, more precisely  is a coarse-grained tripe sausage made with pork (or occasionally, veal), chitterlings, pepper, wine, onions, and seasonings.Andouillette AAAAA

What does AAAAA mean ?

It comes from a meeting between 5 famous French food columnists. They were discussing about the best Andouillette in France and were decided to create a label for the best ones.

The name came from one of the columnists, Henri Clos-Jouve, who was often laughing doing some “Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah”. So, they chose this name for this excellence label in making Andouillette.

AAAAA means also : “Association Amicale des Amateurs d’Andouillettes Authentiques”.

Is it possible to find real Andouillettes in the USA ? To be honest, I don’t know and IMO, it is impossible. So next time you go to France, ask for a AAAAA Andouillette and “Bon appétit !”.

Association AAAAA
