Tastes Delicatessen run by Karen and Jay, in Eton, Berkshire, stocks a superb range of cold meats, cheeses, olives, preserves, pickles, drinks, biscuits, cakes and chocolates, along with many incredibly tasty items that also happen to be gluten, dairy and/or nut free.
We've worked hard to bring you an extensive range of the very best foods and drinks; sourced locally and from specialists around the world. Many items are traditionally produced in small batches and a number are certified as organic. We know many of the producers personally and stock several items which are made in and around Berkshire, including: a range of 12 handmade jams and marmalades; handmade chutneys; honey from hives in Windsor, Iver and Wargrave; fresh bread made from wheat grown in Oxfordshire and Berkshire; Darvilles of Windsor fine teas; Mouthfull Soups (made in Gerrards Cross in the winter months); Tim's Dairy yogurts, cheeses from Berkshire and throughout the region. Local bakers deliver fresh bread every day, plus specialist loaves on Saturdays. We are supplied with free-range eggs from a local farm and seasonal fruit and vegetables.
Those who aren't in the Windsor area (and those who are) can buy many of our superb products from our online deli.
We strive to offer a selection of superb quality essentials, and hard to find ingredients, at sensible prices. Some things are unfortunately too fragile or perishable to offer on our web site. For these you can visit our real shop, where you can see all our products (and if you time it right, taste a few!). Whether online, or in our shop, we hope you enjoy browsing our selection of great tasting foods as much as we've enjoyed sourcing them.
If you are looking to treat someone else, take a look at our gift suggestions and our menu of themed hampers (in a choice of wicker baskets or cardboard boxes) suitable for all tastes and occasions. Alternatively, let us know about your unique requirements and we'll be very happy to create a bespoke hamper to meet your needs. We also offer a bespoke corporate hamper service.
For those planning a wedding, we can create fabulous and unique cheese wedding cakes, and are able to offer crackers and accompaniments in bulk at significantly reduced prices.
If you are visiting Windsor or Eton (or Henley Regatta, Ascot races, or any of the other wonderful outdoor events that take place in this area), we will be very pleased to prepare and pack a picnic for you. Something of your choice or one of our suggestions. Just let us know what you would like and we will have it ready for you to collect.
