Thanks, Mike, but I have been asked advice on buying it in for a themed catered event, so making it oneself is not really an option!

Thanks for the Toulon hint!

Apparently there is South African butcher in Toulon. This is 'hearsay' and I've not been able to get any real evidence.

I have made boerewors, quite succesfully, by mixing up the spices myself and giving them along with the meat/fat mixture to a butcher to actually make the sausages - a messy time consuming job unless you have a sausage machine. 

There are loads of recipes for boerewors, basically down to individual taste.  The important thing is to include plenty of fat .... if you get a Frnech butcher to make it he will tell you that 'this is too much fat' and reduce the quantity.  You must stand your ground ....!

If you need more info contact me through the link!  Good luck.
