    Delicatessen

    Our deli is a delight. We make many products in our own kitchen, including our award-winning pies, quiches and sausage rolls. Encased in crispy pastry and packed with flavour, they’re just one reason why our customers keep coming back. Our counter also offers traditionally cured hams and charcuterie from top producers, as well as ranges of olives, olive oils, vinegars and other condiments and accompaniments.

    MAKING FRESH PASTRY FROM SCRATCH

    A good deli shop uses fresh ingredients and makes them into the most amazing products. Pastry is of course one of the most frequently sought after foods when you are in a delicatessen shop. For every little treat you will need a different sort of pastry. A pie asks for crispy dough that falls apart in your mouth when you take a bite. Puff pastry has a completely different texture: the soft dough gives you the impression that you are eating fluffy clouds. Quiches are mostly made of shortcrust pastry. This crumbly, tender pastry is simple yet very tasty.

    CELEBRATE LIFE WITH A DELICIOUS CHEESE BOARD

    What better way to host a party than with the local delicatessen of the farm shop? Celebrate your birthday by serving a carefully selected cheese board, filled not only with the best cheeses, but also with grapes and olives to create the perfect balance. What is exactly supposed to be on a charcuterie board?

    • hard cheese: Cheddar or Comté;
    • soft cheese: Brie is always a good choice;
    • blue cheese: try Roquefort for a strong, rich taste;
    • plenty of fruits, such as pears, grapes and apples;
    • crackers: you will want a crunchy cracker with a sober taste.

    OLIVE OIL AND VINEGAR FOR THE BEST FINISHING TOUCH

    To top it all off our deli shop is provided with the best herbs and oils that will make your job in the kitchen a whole lot easier. Maybe you carelessly pour oil in your frying pan to make sure your food does not get burned. But olive oil has so much more to offer! Use it as a dressing in your salad or to make croutons. Apart from olive oil we also have plenty of vinegars to offer. Vinegar makes an excellent base for a marinade but it can be a way to spice up your sauces or salads as well. Using the right oils and spices can make or break the dish. So be sure to check out all our local herbs and other delicatessen.
