Superbowl Gumbo --Andouille near Stamford

Any place in lower FFD county to find Andouille for Superbowl party gumbo in honor of NOLA... or maybe make it easy on myself and just buy a finished gumbo at some market or restaurant?

  1. The only shot jfood can think of is Soup Alley in Wilton and SONO. Possibly Jeff's in SONO as well. Call ahead to see.

      Gaspar's Hot Chourico (Portuguese product out of Rhode Island) is available at most supermarkets in lower FFC and is a great substitue for Andouille, I use it in my Jambalaya and it receives raves! Hot or Extra Hot, usually $4 to $5 a pound.

    2. At Shop Rite Commerce Park in Stamford, off exit 6 on 95, they carry D'Artagnian (sp?) andouille and tasso ham. I haven't tried those 2 items, but in my experience, the D'Artagnian products (their Spanish style chorizo, and their bacon, specifically) are excellent. The products are stocked in the case right by the butcher's work area.
