FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Some of the best products are those that start as a family tradition and become a hit with friends. That’s how Mulay’s Sausage Corporation, a maker of all-natural, artisan sausage, got its start at the popular Independence Day celebration in the laid-back mountain town of Crested Butte, Colo., the enterprise’s home base. They celebrated their 22st year of sausage sales at the town’s 4th of July bash this summer!
Mulay’s Original Sausage is made according to a centuries-old recipe from Sicily, Italy, passed down by Loree’s Grandparents. The Mulay Family Crest dates back to 1326 AD in Palermo, Sicily, and reached the United States when her great-grandparents immigrated and settled in Pueblo, Colo.
Loree Mulay-Weisman and her husband, Ward, developed a cult following around the country by selling their Italian sausage sandwiches at Crested Butte festivals over the years. The great response lead to expanded production and sales in local stores, then to the development of www.thesausagelink.com in 2003 to meet year-round, national requests for the premium sausage. They have since expanded their product line and distribution throughout the West.
“People always tell us; ‘It’s just like I use to get in Boston… or Chicago or New York!’ and we just smile ‘cause we know it’s even better, It’s all natural!” Through the years the recipe for Mulay’s Sausage has remained true to the family’s tradition. It is and has always been all natural with no nitrates, preservatives or artificial colors. They use only Antibiotic Free Pork that is vegetarian fed and humanely raised. The sausage is also certified Gluten Free, with no nitrates, sugar, soy, dairy, or MSG.
Today, Mulay’s product line includes their original hot Italian, mild Italian, killer hot Italian, and the breakfast sausage developed for their daughter, a self proclaimed “sausage monster!” They have expanded their line of authentic, traditional sausage recipes to include a bratwurst and chorizo.
Mulay’s is a Colorado Proud Company and a member of the American Culinary Federation’s Colorado Chefs Association. Last year Mulay’s Sausage participated in “Feast in the Field” sponsored by both the ACF with food and beverages provided by Colorado Proud companies. Mulay’s Sausage was paired with ACF President Joe Piazza who used the Original Hot Italian sausage by stuffing it in Calamari tubes, brazing it in a fresh tomato sauce, serving it over white beans with a chick stock reduction and then topping the beautiful creation with deep fried calamari tentacles! This amazing dish was enjoyed and admired by many. At the Colorado State Fair’s Dueling Chef Competition Chef McGhee – Millennium Harvest House, Boulder, won first place with his Mulay’s – Sausage Shu Mai creation. Judge Kristen Browning – Blas, Denver Post, wrote “Their ambitious sausage-filled dumplings, steamed in corn husks and served with droplets of soy-balsamic sauce, wowed us.”
Today, Mulay’s strives to continue the rich family tradition and passion for making great sausage. “Let Mulay’s take you back to a slower, simpler time when food was made to be enjoyed and family and friends truly appreciated.”
