Thanks for whoever provided the link for great LA markets. We tried the two below:
J&T European Gourmet Food Deli
1128 Wilshire Blvd.
Santa Monica 90401
They had all kinds of smoked Polish sausages. The Kubanos was my favorite--reminded me of Nueske's bacon! I also liked the Hunter sausage. They also sell smoked pork ribs for only $3.50/pound, which can be sliced and eaten as is, or added to soups for a great smokey-pork flavor. I have yet to try the Piorogi (sp?) (sold frozen). They sell all kinds of Polish foods there too. The beers were very good.
Vincente Foods & Fine Meats in Brentwood
I grilled their Cranberry-Chicken Sausage, which had a very "holiday" flavor with cloves, etc. This would be a great addition to a Fall or Winter menu--yum!
This is a great market. I have never seen such an organized produce area.
***Unfortunately, I misplaced the list of markets--does anybody know where that link is--I'd like to try more of the markets recommended.
