Legend Behind the Dong Guan Sausage

The legend behind the Dong Guan sausage celebrates the spirit of ingenuity among food artisans. A short man handcrafted and sold sausages for a living, however due to his height, as he carried the sausages down the street, some of the longer sausages reached the ground, dragging through the mud. This would not do, he thought, and so he found ways to make the sausages shorter and taste differently to others.The smell and taste of his sausages became legendary, attracting many customers from afar.

Today, this sausage is celebrated and enjoyed by many Guang dong or Cantonese Chinese in their Chinese New Year dishes, such as Lap Mei Fan.
