We think we have the widest and most interesting range of food and drink in the region (if not beyond)
We have an ever growing range of flour from local organically-grown and milled Gilchesters Flour through to authentic Italian ’00’ flour.
And each Saturday we have hand made artisan bread from Northumberland-based Zen Baker at mmm…, including the legendary black pudding and caramelised onion ‘piggy’ bread.
Herbs and spices
We have a vast array of the best quality spices, herbs and chillies – from everyday basil and bay leaves to hard-to-find sumac, za’atar, saffron and three types of smoked ‘pimenton’ paprika.
We have a huge range of Indian, Mexican, Moroccan, Palestinian, Lebanese herbs, spices and ingredients.
These are sourced largely from small producers who are using authentic and traditional methods and recipes.
We have a fantastic range of oils in our decanting service, which offers you possibly the best tasting oils around at the most reasonable prices – and best of all you can refill time after time.
From Yellow Fields rapeseed (grown and produced locally), to cold-pressed extra virgin olives oils from Spain, Greece, Italy, Portugal and Palestine we have oils to suit every taste.
We also have a superb range of vinegars, glazes and fruit-infused balsamics, plus dressings and marinades from the traditional to the unusual!
Hot and spicy
If you like it hot we have a fantastic range of fresh and dried chillies from smokey chipotle and even fiery nagas!
Add to this curry kits, handmade curry pastes, chutneys and sauces and you are in chilli heaven at mmm…
Preserves and chutneys
The most delicious hand made honeys, chutneys, jams and sauces you will find, mostly produced in the north east, Teesdale and Cumbria.
Sweets and treats
Award winning funky handmade organic chocolates from local chocolatier Davenports Chocolates and Montezuma’s, plus delicious handcrafted rolled oat cakes from Fife in Scotland.
We wish we had more shelves most days, simply to get even more types of pasta at mmm…
From the classic spaghetti and penne through to fregola, orzo and even cuttlefish ‘black’ pasta.
Add to that the best tinned tomatoes, passata, pesto and other Italian delights then you will know why we have the best of Italia here in the very centre of Newcastle.
Store cupboard essentials and household basics
We always look to source the best quality organic, beans and pulses, grains, rice, cereals, salts, condiments and dried goods.
Don’t ask us if we stock something – just ask where it is …
