An independent local retail business, based in the beautiful, historical city of Chichester, West Sussex.

Hi, I’m Katharine, thank you for visiting my website.  When I first started my business in Chichester back in 2004, my aim was to offer a ‘foodies paradise’ where customers could browse and indulge in a mouth-watering array of local delights alongside delectable flavours from around the world.  I have worked alongside some fantastic family run businesses with people who are equally as passionate about food as I am. From Chichester to Tuscany, Wiltshire to Morocco, my aim is to offer the very best of the best.

Kitchen essentials, chosen and tested by us

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.

We have a range of hand-made hampers in different sizes, catering for all tastes and budgets.  Personalise your gift by selecting items yourself and we will gift wrap for you.
