Woolworths Northbridge is taking your humble weekly grocery shop to the next level, unveiling a smorgasboard of delights in a new-look store with the emphasis on fresh food.
When it comes to fresh, it doesn’t get any fresher than Woolworths. They take great pride in partnering with Aussie farmers to bring you fruit and veg – fresh, crisp and full of flavour. And now Woolworths Northbridge is bringing a whole new range of amazing meals, ingredients and treats to the North Shore.
And in addition to the new gourmet and international foods, you might also notice that one of the sections has fruit and veg that looks a little different. This range is called The Odd Bunch. It’s made up of fresh produce that looks different to its classic shape, but is just as beautiful on the inside, healthy, nutritious and also represents great value. Not only does it save you money but it helps farmers out as they can sell more produce overall too. And there’s nothing odd about that! Ask any of the friendly experts what’s in season, or if you like your fruit or veg cut and wrapped to size, just ask!
Northbridge Woolworths New Look: The Deli
Inspired by a classic Italian delicatessen, the glass cabinets are brimming with cured meats, salami, salads and antipasti from local and international producers. All these delicacies are ready to serve, or the team can slice your meats just the way you like it – thick, thin or shaved.
The cheese section is also filled with goodies from local producers, as well as international classics such as aged Italian pecorino, Swiss gruyère and rich, creamy French brie. The olive section is worth exploring too, with plump Sicilians, rich Kalamatas and a wide variety of sliced, marinated and stuffed varieties ready to enjoy.
North Shore Mums tip: One of the store team deli favourites is the D’Orsogna sliced honey leg ham served off the bone, made from Australian Jarrah Honey and Australian Pork. The D’Orsogna family has been crafting authentic and flavoursome smallgoods here in Australia for more than 67 years. From a humble suburban butcher shop, D’Orsogna has been in partnership with Woolworths for more than 60 years and has grown into a well-loved national brand.
Chop Chop! Meet the Butcher
There’s nothing quite like a tender cut of meat cooked to perfection. But this process doesn’t start in the kitchen, or with an in-store expert butcher. It starts on the farm with dedicated local farmers- because all the fresh meat comes from right here in Australia. That means with every delicious bite, you’re supporting local Aussie farmers and their communities. And because it’s 100% Aussie, you’re also enjoying some of the finest quality in the world.
The butchers can even slice your selection of fresh meat while you wait, so you go home with exactly what you were after. Also, ask for cooking tips while you’re there, so your dish is juicy, tender and packed with flavour.
North Shore Mums tip: Good farming practices are important to North Shore Mums families, so it’s good to know that Woolworths branded fresh chicken is RSPCA approved, ethically raised and delivered fresh to the store.
Say Cheese! Gourmet Cheese
If you’re a cheese lover, you’ll feel like a kid in a candy store when you visit the new cheese section at Woolworths Northbridge!
Hand-picked from around the globe, there’s a delectable collection of different types to try, from local soft cheeses and true infused French Brie to beautifully aged Italian Parmigiano-Reggiano. And the sky’s the limit when it comes to using your favourites. Crumble blue cheese over a pear salad, grate Parmesan on to pasta and risotto dishes, or try grilling a little Haloumi at your next BBQ.
North Shore Mums tip: Start by exploring cheese made from different types of milk. Cow’s milk tends to be the mildest in flavour – its creamy, sweet taste translates into a more subtle base flavour. Goat’s milk turns into a slightly more grassy, sweet and tangy cheese, whereas sheep’s milk has a milder grassy flavour with a tangier backbone and less buttery taste. And from there it’s time to start tasting from different regions around Australia, and then the world. Bon appétit!
Bread of Life! The Artisan Bakery
A shining star of the fresh new look Northbridge store is the bakery! It’s a one one-stop shop for gourmet loaves, pastries and party cakes. There’s also flatbread made fresh in-store, perfect for burritos, wraps or pizza bases. They use only the finest ingredients in the in-store range with Aussie wheat flour.It’s pretty easy to find too, just follow that moreish smell of baked bread!
The bakery also has a mouth-watering selection of cakes and pastries. Using decadent recipes and quality ingredients, the custom-made cakes are sure to impress guests of any age. If you have a celebration coming up (or perhaps just a sweet tooth) you can order a custom-made cake over the counter. Ask the bakers about flavours, sizes, decorations or custom messages.
North Shore Mums tip: Besides the custom cakes (see above), the team are not just baking the bread but offering to slice it too. If you love a good loaf, you won’t be disappointed.
