Where to buy Chorizo (from Spain) or French Saucisson in TORONTO?

travelismylife May 29, 2008 12:09 PM

I miss Spanish and French cured meats! I cannot seem to find authentic dried spanish Chorizo, Salchichon or even a french saucisson like Rosette de Lyon. Does anyone know where I can go in Toronto to buy these?

Thanks for your help!

I am going to check out Salumeria today as I read an old post recommending this.

    Though likely available elsewhere, it's surfaced at Boncheff on Olivewood in Etobicoke. About $10 for 2 vacpac'd medium-sized links of imported Spanish chorizo.

        I got a chorizo from Spain at Scheffler's in St. Lawrence Market, but it was $11 !

          yeah, the rael deal chorizo is always expensive, La Fromagerie at College & Concord sells it, it is expensive but lasts a long time and is really tasty

            Scheffler's at the St. Lawrence Market carries French style saucisson from Quebec, and they also have larger saucisson from France that are rolled in herbs or pepper. Fantastic stuff.

                So, TIML, did you find your Spanish chorizo? Did Salumeria have any?

                I even saw chorizo imported from Spain at Loblaw's a couple weeks ago.

                  Try La Fromagerie on College near Ossington.

                    The Healthy Butcher has a ton of different sausages, not sure if they have your request though

                      Gilead Cafe makes some French style garlic sausages, which, given that the butcher there is French, makes it pretty close.

                        FYI: ... Torito's Tapas bar in Kensington has a delicious Chorizo on the menu..
