Mezze Christmas Gift Guide

We are 6 months open in the deli in Tramore, Co. Waterford and we are really excited about our first Christmas! Our deli combines our love for Middle Eastern food with products from our fellow Irish artisan food producers, growers and makers.

For gifts this Christmas we have a range of beautiful hampers for those who love to cook, those that love to eat and the eco-concious. You can find our full range of hampers in our deli or our online shop. We also have a number of events happening early 2020 which would be a great gift for a foodie friend or loved one.
