You might already know this if you've followed my blog for a while but one of my favourite places in the North East is Fenwick department store. Growing up, it was always and still is a treat to go see the Fenwick Christmas window display and my Mom and I will often pop in for a special occasion shopping trip. Fenwick is the place I was taken to choose my first Mulberry handbag and was the place I bought my first pair of designer shoes. It's where I go for special presents for the people I love and for the little luxuries that you can't seem to find anywhere else.
Now I have to admit, I only really used the Food Hall at Christmas. I'd pop in for stocking filler lollies and Charbonnel Truffles. Or if I was in desperate need of a sugary treat mid-shop, I'd pop for a macaroon. However I shall most definitely be spending a lot more time there now!
The new Food hall officially launched on October 23rd and it looks absolutely stunning. I went along with Tasha and I didn't know where to look as we first went in. Just like children in a sweetshop, we stood a little bit in awe until a lovely lady from the marketing team popped over to tell us all about the new look Food Hall and what was planned for the evening.
What I love is how the new Food Hall combines local businesses such as The Naked Deli and OCC with well known National brands such as Fuego and Mason & Rye. And as we explored the store Tasha and I literally 'Oooooh'd' in sync as we spotted all the delicious food on display and tucked into the cakes and canapés. I was also really impressed with the amount of gluten and dairy free products as it's a struggle to find luxury allergen free treats.
I couldn't possibly manage to squeeze everything into one blog post so you really will have to go see it for yourself! For more information on opening times and the store, take a look here. Thank you to Fenwick for such a lovely evening - I absolutely cannot wait to pop back in and do a little pre-festive food shop!
