We opened our doors in November 2004, and thanks to our love of good food, our unique offering, and the support of our loyal customers, Zest For Taste has become the destination of choice for food lovers in Chichester and the South Coast.

We are delighted to offer you many carefully selected lines premium olives, oils, spices, marinades, sauces and dips and we are so convinced you will enjoy these we have tasters readily available in-store for you to come in and try.

Also available, is our on Tap system where you can have as much or as little of your favourite Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Balsam Vinegars as you like.  We also offer a refill system where you can refill your bottles and simply pay for just the contents.

Not only do we have a passion for good food, we personally choose and test out every kitchen tool and gadget we sell.   Our beautiful range of ceramics are also carefully chosen, with unique designs that you’ll love.  We only sell lines that we know are great and products that work and are actually useful, in the kitchen. If a product doesn’t do what it is meant to, or is over-priced we simply won’t stock it.

    I visited the shop on Saturday 30th April. I must say the staff were unbelievably helpful and credit to the owners. There was a new young lady in training and her and the young lady who was giving the instruction were both polite and curtious at all time and totally made my visit there a real treat. It was so pleasant to be treated in such a wonderful way. I will be visiting again the next time my wife and I are down from North Wales, in the mean time I shall be ordering all require online.

    Thank you so much.

    Warren Hayles.

      Dear Warren,
      Thank you so much for your email, such a pleasure to hear this! I am the owner and I am currently off work following a foot operation, so to know my staff are still doing a wonderful job whilst I am away is a joy to hear. We look forward to welcoming you and your wife back in-store when you are next in Chichester, meanwhile please rest assured that your comments will be passed on.

      Warm wishes,
      Katharine Gasnier
