One of the things I always do when travelling 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.

One of the items I found at Gourmet World was Aromat, a seasoning I first encountered in Switzerland. It's great on a hard-boiled egg. (Jonathan Pinto/CBC)

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.
