Your local delicatessen has arrived!
By Ivana Molnar - The District Docklands
With more than 20 years in the hospitality industry, this family owned and run Gourmet Deli House is ready to share their passion for fine food with the local community.
The team is proud to provide you the very best in gourmet dishes from around the globe, including its very own signature marinades inspired by true love for traditional recipes.
When you walk into Gourmet Deli House, you will think you’ve arrived at a traditional delicatessen in a small town in Greece, so before you rattle off your list of desired meats and cheeses to the staff, let them make you a coffee. They’re brewing coffee using Evolve beans, proudly and lovingly roasted in Melbourne.
At Gourmet Deli House you will only find the finest range of quality products, starting with naturally wood smoked butcher’s smallgoods including Hungarian and Casalingo salami, capocollo, pancetta, every kind of ham you could possibly dream of and even wood smoked kransky.
But where do we begin with their variety of cheese? They stock an award-winning range of local and imported cheeses that will make your mouth water. From Amsterdam gouda to Greek kefalograviera, yummy parmesan and Jarlsberg, strong pecorino to creamy and sharp Romano, every cheese you need for the perfect snack board or platter.
And it doesn’t stop there. Toulla, one of the proud owners, is excited to share her love of food with her customers, proudly sharing a selection of homemade recipes. From dips and pesto, marinated olives and seafood to semi-dried tomatoes, caramelised onions and stuffed jalapenos. With herb and garlic roasted capsicum and mushrooms, lemon and garlic artichokes and a secret recipe ready-to-eat cabbage rolls, Gourmet Deli House really is a one-stop-shop for all your favourites.
The sweet tooths among us are not forgotten! You’ll find traditional sweets including Turkish delight, Italian nougat, macarons and baklava. Stock your pantry with olive oil, duck fat, pasta and sauce, salt and pepper blends and more. And when lockdown is over, and you can slowly get back to normal life, let Gourmet Deli House cater your next event, with their delicious and picture-perfect grazing tables and centre pieces, offering gluten free, dairy free and vegan options to accommodate all needs.
So, if you’ve got food FOMO, add Gourmet Deli House to your visit list on your next essential shopping trip to Market Lane at The District Docklands. Toulla invites you to try before you buy, because she wants you to “taste the homemade difference”.
