Where can I buy andouille sausage in Toronto (it's smoked sausage typically used in gumbo recipes)?
Yes, andouille sausages are very hard to find in this city, but there are a few places that offer them.
1. Cajun Corner - Leslieville (map)
They are frozen but are not that bad. It is also a great place to get other stuff for gumbo recipes.
2. Healthy Butcher - Queen West West (map)
Very expensive but worth every cent. Call before going though because it is not a staple.
3. St. Lawrence Market - South Market (map)
Probably the cheapest and most reliable. They have several other varieties of sausages there too.
I know that Thuet serves them in a few dishes in his restaurant. It may be worth calling him (416.603.2777) and seeing where he does his shopping...however, it also wouldn't surprise me if he made them himself ;)
Let me know which ones work best for you. Leave a comment.
