We're currently living in Minnesota, and are looking to throw a big Italian feed for a graduation party in a few weeks, and since we're going to be in the Chicago area between now and then, we're looking to pick up some ingredients while we're there.
We're mainly looking for Italian sausage - probably buying 10-20 pounds of it - mostly links, but maybe some bulk. Who's got the best Italian sausage out there? Because of the quantity, we're probably not looking for high-end gourmet-type sausages - just your basic, good, fennel-y Italian sausage, which is difficult to find in Minnesota.
I know either Jewel (I think) or Dominick's _used_ to have really good Italian sausage - of course, this was 10+ years ago. That would definitely be the simplest, but we'll have a few days to take care of this, so if it requires a trip to a more out-of-the-way location, that's okay, too - within reason.
Thanks in advance.
