As Christmas Holidays Creep Up, There Are Exciting Times Ahead at Olives and Oils....

With the opening of advent calendars around the country, we have our own countdown to Christmas underway. Here at Olives and Oils Delicatessen, Mumbles we have been busy, not only in the shop, but behind the scenes. Of course for all retailers this is a prime time for business, and for us it is no exception, and a good business never stays still. Just because the shop has limited hours it doesn't mean that we aren't busy elsewhere, looking for new stock and improving what we do!  

Those of you who have regularly visited our website will see that we have undertaken a complete website redesign and now offer a greater emphasis towards online shopping with the launch of a new e-commerce site. In time, almost all our non-perishable products will appear on the website and Olives and Oils Online will help you plan ahead for your special days, not just at Christmas. The more observant of you will also see that we have now introduced this regular blog where we will bring you all manner of up to date information regarding the shop, our produce, our involvement in events and even recipes....but that's not all!

And so to the latest news...

You know how we are very careful in choosing only the best quality products for our customers and we have worked hard to bring you something exciting and new for this Christmas! As a consequence, we are delighted to tell you that we have launched a range of fabulous food and drink products by the highly prestigious brand of Danish Chef Nicolas Vahé based out of central Denmark.

Haven't heard of the name? Nicolas Vahé is a fully trained chef, chocolatier and pastry chef with years of experience gained from his time in French and Danish gourmet restaurants, and he created his first collection of gourmet products ten years ago in 2005. The Nicolas Vahé range includes Beverages, Chocolate & Desserts, Coffee/Tea & Cocoa, Jams and Honey, Marinades and Sauces, Oils and Vinegars, Pastas, Risottos together with Salt and Spices. Just take a look through our new website and see what Nicolas Vahé products interest you, and if there is anything in which you are particularly interested, but we don't have on the shelves, then please let us know.

Finally, with Christmas literally around every corner, what could be better than to spoil yourself and your family by tucking into one of our Olives and Oils Hampers...we have put together a fabulous range of hampers to suit all pockets. Ranging from £21.95 upwards we have gift boxes, Italian hampers, Spanish hampers, Cheese hampers through to festive and fully fledged Christmas hampers. But more on those in the next blog entry....but for now...happy eating!
