We are delighted you have chosen to shop at Gourmelli, a web shop devoted to unusual, hard to find, quality ingredients for both professional and amateur cooks to help “spice-up” and enhance both nouvelle cuisine and traditional down to earth dishes!
You will find a range of eclectic ingredients and foods from around the world that you will not find in your local supermarket. We are not a grocery store nor are we a delicatessen per se. We sell what we like and think you will like; the unusual, the new and the old forgotten ingredients.
We also get inspiration from TV programmes especially when celebrity chefs mention ingredients not easily found in the UK. One example that’s coming soon is Colatura that we first became aware of from a certain Saturday morning tv show. What is it?
“It is obtained with the juice coming out of the anchovies in salt, which are pressed slowly by some weights. The juice obtained in this way is then filtered and what you obtain is a clear amber nice looking liquid. It is used in the cuisine for spaghetti and enriches of flavouir (sic) any sauce. It is produced by the family Recca, who has been engaged in working fish and anchovies caught by local fishing boats of Sciacca for four generations”
In addition, We have a whole range of bergamot products coming soon including Bergamot Marmalade, Panattone and Amoretti. Truffle products from Italy, Foie Gras from France and Lobster oil from Canada.
What you see in the shop now is just the start, why not sign up for our email newsletter where we’ll tell you about all our new products and give you loads of fantastic recipe’s to use them in. Our promise to you is that we will keep searching and finding the new, the forgotten and the unusual to making your cooking experiences even more fun.
Lest we forget…
There’s an old English proverb that states “Good eating deserves good drinking”
That’s our sentiment exactly. So we’re now stocking Berry Bros & Rudd own wines.
Trade enquiries welcome.
