Fine Fare and Foie Gras: The Best of Sydney’s Delicatessens

Forget processed meats, shrink-wrapped cheese and frozen ready-meals. Quality produce and gourmet ingredients are where it’s at. Discover the finest meats, cheeses and artisan products at the delicatessens that we can’t get enough of.

Gourmet Life

The go-to deli for some of Sydney’s most celebrated chefs, Edgecliff’s Gourmet Life is an exceptionally high-quality food emporium that is said to go through more than a million dollars of caviar and truffles a year. Selling everything from rare salts through $70k beluga caviar, make this your first port of call for foodie gifts and special occasions.

Salts Meat Cheese

Salts Meat Cheese is a mainstay on Sydney’s deli scene and it’s clear why. Italian born cousins and owners Stefano De Blasi and Edoardo Perlo know their stuff when it comes to…well, salts, meat and cheese! The deli is renowned for its extensive range of international produce, and also offers eat-in options at some stores – think woodfired pizzas, home cooked pastas and delicious platters.

The Deli Erskineville

A local’s favourite, The Deli Erskineville is where those in the know head to stock up on hard-to-find imported goodies. Cheese, artisan breads, antipasto, condiments, free range meats all hailing from places like France, Italy and Spain. But if you’re after something a little more local, they have home-grown favourites too.

Fourth Village Providore

Stock up on an array of delicious international cheeses in their award-winning cheese room, or treat yourself at the trattoria-style restaurant. The menu changes in line with the seasons, and features the very best ingredients from the Fourth Village store.

Fratelli Fresh
