Every seasoned traveller knows that one of the biggest joys of traversing the globe is sampling the local delicacies along the way, and for foodies, it’s a simple pleasure they strive to recreate at home. But finding the best French cheeses or Spanish meats for your summer soiree on home soil isn’t always easy, and with mainstream supermarkets rarely offering the breadth of selection or luxury you seek, you can often find yourself having to settle for something lesser in quality and taste.
At least, that used to be the case – but now, Europafoodxb is bringing a taste of Europe to the UK from its base in Paddington, London. Founded in 2013, the company has been building a reputation for itself over the years as the country’s leading European supermarket, and offers shoppers the chance to source some delectable produce from across Europe, delivered straight to their doors anywhere in the country. So, no more taking an extra suitcase on your travels to fill with the good stuff, or trekking across the city looking for produce that measures up, because from France, Spain and Portugal to Greece and Eastern Europe, this innovative set-up has got you covered.
Built on a knowledgeable team of 30 who work together just for one simple aim – providing UK clients with the most demanded products from Europe – the company has won itself a legion of loyal fans, including UK nationals and European expats who are living in Britain and craving some home comforts.
The online European supermarket’s food products are conveniently divided into categories to make finding what you’re looking for a cinch, and you can search by country or by product type – so if you’re not looking for something special but simply want to browse and try out some options, then it’s easy to find some.
In the fresh meats category, for example, you’ll find a wide variety of meat products available to buy by the kilo – from beef and pork to duck and lamb. And you can search by a specific meat, too – so if you’re eager to try beef bavette, rump steak, beef entrecote or faux filet or require it for a certain recipe, then you’ll find it here.
Since it’s barbecue season, it’s the perfect time to stock up on the good stuff, and with a wealth of other meats to choose from – including veal sausages, duck filets and plenty of poultry, Europafoodxb is the place to shop. And in the picnics and barbecues section, you’ll find all of the mouth-watering accompaniments needed to make any outdoor dining experience a memorable one for all the right reasons – all that’s needed is a little culinary flair, and you can whip up a tasty spread for guests in minutes.
A thoroughly French picnic
Thinking of adding a little French sophistication to your summer garden party? You can’t go wrong with a picnic spread – and with an array of mouth-watering French cheeses and wines available for delivery straight to your door, all you need to do is lay out the blankets, provide the crockery, and prepare to enjoy.
A taste of Greece
If you often find yourself reminiscing about sailing the azure waters of the Aegean or hopping from island to island in the Cyclades on a balmy summer’s day, then why not recreate the experience at home? Whipping up a Greek salad with some authentic feta cheese, fresh, juicy tomatoes and flavourful kalamata olives is a task that requires minimal effort – don’t forget to drizzle liberally with some quality Greek olive oil, and serve alongside some other typical delights like dolmades and stuffed peppers.
For a summer social occasion with a difference, put together a Spanish tapas evening for your guests. Small plates that are designed to be shared are the perfect choice when you’re eager to keep the conversation flowing, and Serrano ham and semi-cured Manchego cheese with fresh bread and olives couldn’t be simpler to assemble. If you’re keen to impress your guests with your culinary flair, then finish with a show-stopping paella.
