Deli's are surprisingly sparse up North, and considering they're the purveyors of fine meats, exciting cheeses and unusual breads, you'd think Manchester with its rich culture would be full of them. But, interestingly not. That's why , formerly known as Olive, on the corner of Princess street and round the corner from the Gay Village, is a gem of a place.



On the corner of Whitworth street, with its floor to ceiling windows and rainbow of local and international food, it pulls at your inner child. is a sweet shop for grown ups.

If you manage to walk past then you deserve a pat on the back because the scent of cured meats, fresh olives and baked bread always breaks my resolve.

serve exactly what you'd imagine: fresh, local bread (white, wholegrain, sourdough, gluten free), an array of Spanish cured meats like chorizo, iberico ham and pastrami; jarred goods like jams, chutneys, international tinned goods; Spanish tomatoes and berlotti beans; condiments: herb infused oils and vinegars, and everything in between: biscotti, and fresh arincini.

Couple the produce with an owner who has a refreshing amount of enthusiasm for what he's doing and you've got a winner.

The owner is a charming young fellow whose smile may fell many, but it's his passion for artisan and healthy food that struck a chord with me. His organic beliefs and friendliness reminds me of simpler times that my grandparents used to relate - 'everyone knew each other and you'd have a chat with the milk man.'



just rolls off your tongue doesn't it? Perhaps that's the attraction - the rather seductive phonetic quality. Or maybe it's the incredibly good food. Either way, I'm hooked.
