Satisfy all of your cheese and charcuterie desires at The Fino Food Shop
Hello … is it brie you’re looking for? We can see it in your eyes, we can see it in your smile. Well you can stop the search. Fino Food + Wine, one of Brisbane’s most renowned gourmet food wholesalers, has decided to share the love with the general public through its new online store The Fino Food Shop.
For ten years, Fino Food + Wine has supplied many of Brisbane’s best restaurants, grocers and providores with fine artisan produce. You’ve probably been a big fan of the company for years without evening knowing it – some of Fino’s producers and brands include Salumi Australia (mmm sobrasada), Pepe Saya (mmm cultured butter), Gundowring (mmm golden syrup ice-cream) and Milawa Cheese Company (mmm chevre). Over the years its warehouse has often been treated as a gourmet supermarket – or as we call it, heaven – by friends and family, and most weeks the Fino team was asked to put together cheese and charcuterie spreads for special occasions and events. This made them think – why don’t we make this available to everyone?
Enter The Fino Food Shop. The idea of the online store is that Fino does all the hard work for you – it knows what goes well together, it knows what items are crowd pleasers and you don’t have to spend an hour sniffing every cheese in the fromagerie. The store features both cheese and charcuterie collections, with spreads catering for groups big and small. Award-winning cheese producers are showcased, such as aged cloth cheddar from the Maffra Cheese Co., bitey blues from South Australian Berrys Creek Cheese and mixture of local and international soft and semi-hards. Charcuterie spreads include an array of Salumi Australia’s Northern Rivers-produced smallgoods, as well as some more unusual products from Sydney’s Quattro Stelle – think wild boar Cinghiale Bocconcini. No spread is complete without accompaniments and The Fino Food Shop has grouped together chutneys, pickles, crackers and more that are the perfect match to your spread of choice. The store also has a number of food hampers, the ideal gift for the dedicated foodie in your life.
