Cheese Boards & Buffets

At Tastes Delicatessen we have a mouth-watering selection of cheeses and wide assortment of wonderful foods, which are perfect for drinks parties or buffets. There is a lot to choose from and we have listed here some of our most popular "party" foods.


We can offer a superb selection of roasted nuts, Italian breadsticks, snack crackers, dips, hand baked crisps etc and can supply these in returnable serving dishes if required.

Cheese Boards

Our deli counter contains a wide range of wonderful cheeses, mainly British, along with excellent quality artisan cheeses from around the world. We can put together a selection of cheeses for any occasion: a dinner party for 6, a wine tasting for 20, or an exhibition for 300. The cheeses can form the appetiser or grande finale to a meal or as part of a buffet. We can also supply cheese wedding "cakes".

We will work with you to select cheeses suitable for your event, creating an appetising selection balanced with freshly baked breads, crackers and oat cakes.

Cheese board prices start at around £3 per head.


A lot of the produce sold in the deli is suitable for buffets and we can even create the buffet for you, leaving you to simply put the plates on the table and remove the cling film. Typically our buffets consist of bowls of olives, platters of cured and smoked meats, chorizo and salami, baskets of freshly baked artisan breads, crisps, nuts, dips, breadsticks and crudités. You can supply your own crockery, which we will fill with your buffet items, or you can borrow crockery from us. Buffet prices start at £6 per head.

If you would like to create your own buffet, we can supply a fantastic range of suitable items, many of which are hand made. There are lots of fabulous items available throughout the week in our shop. Many more products are available on a pre-order basis.
