Fine Foods From Shearer’s Of Forest Row
Nick Shearer started Shearer’s Fine Foods over 5 years ago and has built a reputation for great tasting food and drink. The cheese counter is an important part of the deli, but there is so much more, including a host of specialist recipe ingredients, fresh bread, chilled lines, frozen pastries and savouries, handmade desserts, chocolates and other treats, fine wines and food accessories. They also offer fresh, made to order deli sandwiches and tapas boxes to take away.
Nick’s view is that if you use quality, flavoursome ingredients then you don’t need to complicate meals to make them special. Pairing cheese with other ingredients enhances the overall flavour; the Manchego with Membrillo and Mayfield Swiss with basil pairings were quite extraordinary.
Away from the cheese counter one of the most popular departments is the Antipasti Bar which offers nine varieties of olives and antipasti for customers to help themselves. Spanish products feature across all departments at Shearer’s, including cheeses, hams, chorizos, wines and the much sought after Rabitos, figs filled with a brandy mousse and covered in chocolate; fabulous!
Most importantly, food has always been an essential part of day to day life and Nick firmly believes that as well as eating a healthy balanced diet we should all actually enjoy what we consume. No one has to put up with the bland offerings that are unfortunately so widely available; everyone should seek out tastier foods. Remember that if we keep buying those bland products then the shops will keep supplying them.
As an independent, Nick has been able to be responsive to customer suggestions which has proved to be very successful, especially in the run up to Christmas when his multinational customer base have some very specific requirements for their festive entertaining.
At the end of the day, Nick is keen to pass on his passion for great tasting food and looks forward to meeting you in the shop…
