New York is the city that never sleeps but always eats well and the Big Apple has long been ahead of the trend when it comes to delicious food. Long before we had gourmet food retailers here, New York’s Soho had Dean and De Luca, opening in the hip neighbourhood in 1977. It may have been a bit of a wait, but there is amazing news for foodies today as Dean and DeLuca’s signature specialty products are set to arrive in Brown Thomas on April 27th.
Brown Thomas is already mecca for lovers of gourmet goodies, but Dean and DeLuca’s range of exciting products will take Grafton Street’s Level 3 to another delicious level altogether. If you are a fan of the Food Network, you will have heard the Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten raving about Dean and DeLuca’s pasta sauces, oils and herb collection.
Here at TheTaste, we are most excited about getting our hands on Dean and DeLuca’s magical flavour enhancing ingredients like porcini sea salt to up our dinner game. What’s more, the confectionary aisle at Dean and DeLuca is second to none and they will be bringing delights such as cheesecake truffles and chocolate covered hazelnuts to Brown Thomas, making a trip to town to sample the new range irresistible.
Just to add an extra layer of exclusivity, Brown Thomas will be the first European store to stock Dean and DeLuca produce. Speaking on the arrival of the famed range Edel Woods, Group Buyer at Brown Thomas said: “We are thrilled to see the exclusive arrival of Dean & DeLuca at Brown Thomas with its superb range of culinary quality foods making it the destination for foodies in Ireland.”
Lisa Kageyama, International Food & Beverage Merchant for Dean & DeLuca noted that “We are absolutely honoured to be making the Dean & DeLuca European premiere at the world-renowned Brown Thomas. It is wonderful that Ireland will be able to experience many our signature products that have been long enjoyed in New York and other parts of the world.”
