Discover hard-to-find European foods at this Regent Street shop

One of the things I always do when traveling is head to the grocery store.

It’s a great way to find discover new foods that may not always be on a restaurant menu. The problem I always run into, however, is once you’re back home, it’s not always easy to find that ingredient you discovered.

That’s where a store in Sudbury called Gourmet World comes in.

I’ve been able to find some European items there that are pretty hard to come by at your typical grocer. To learn about how this business came to be, I reached co-owner Sue Scherzinger.
