World Foods

Hey foodies! Isn’t it frustrating when you have an exotic recipe you’re keen to try but you can’t find the right ingredients? Well have you tried World Foods in Russell Street? Conveniently located right next to the four clocks they stock a mind-boggling array of foods to delight your taste buds.

Amrit Fatania previously ran Paganhill Stores for 18 years and has now been based in Russell Street for almost 10, so he has a wealth of experience in stocking just what you need! He also has a keen eye for spotting the freshest, plumpest fruit and veg and enjoys browsing the markets at the crack of dawn three times a week to find the best of the seasonal produce on offer. His passion for high quality food led him to find The Billowing Loaf (see opposite) whose sourdough bread is now one of his best-sellers.

But when you rush to World Foods to buy your Billowing Loaf, take a moment to look around the store. You’re sure to find inspiration to cook something new! Among other things you can find there are fresh herbs such as Italian flat leaf parsley, coriander and kaffir lime leaves, plantain, tumeric root, tamarind, lemongrass, scotch bonnet chillis, jackfruit, a huge range of dried beans and pulses, and an exciting array of tins and jars containing delicacies like patra, jaggery, kapusta, pickles, harissa paste, Kefir (very good for digestion), pierogi and kielbasa. If you can’t see what you need Amrit can order it for you, and if you’re not sure how to use an unusual ingredient Amrit is bound to have some recipe ideas.

Next time you’re in town have a wander around World Foods, you won’t be disappointed!
