Almost 40 years ago, two young New Yorkers, Joel Dean and Giorgio Deluca, opened their gourmet food emporium in SoHo, an up-and-coming artists’ neighborhood in Manhattan. Offering customers a sumptuous celebration of food, a place to experience all of the pleasures of cooking and eating, the original store suggested a turn-of-the-century food department, with high ceiling fans spinning over a vast array of handcrafted products and artisan foods lining high, white walls.
Today, DEAN & DELUCA is an international purveyor of gourmet and quality specialty foods, DEAN & DELUCA specialty products and high-end kitchenware with operations throughout the United States, Tokyo, Kuwait and Qatar. DEAN & DELUCA cafés are found in these countries as well, in addition to Taipei and Dubai. In addition to its corporate gift catalog and e-commerce site, DEAN & DELUCA also markets its private label products to other retailers and wholesalers throughout the world.
Strolling DEAN & DELUCA in Kuwait is a food adventure, with discoveries at every turn. Friendly staff members offer tastes – of cheeses, charcuterie, olive oils, exotic fruits, breads and pastries, chocolates and Arabic sweets. Meat and Fish counters display the finest products, locally and internationally procured. For those who want to share the joy of eating chef-prepared delicacies at home, DEAN & DELUCA offers an extensive and breathtaking array of freshly prepared foods to go, from chicken pot pie to paella to sautéed peppers to pomegranate seed-garnished Middle Eastern salads.
Providing expert advice on all things culinary is a DEAN & DELUCA trademark. At the in-store kitchen, chefs prepare dishes before your eyes, demonstrating techniques to try at home as well as tastes of dishes ranging from Pasta Pomodoro to the French fish stew called bouillabaisse. Looking for that perfect gift? A concierge service is happy to consult on the selection of delicious delicacies for a gift basket that will be treasured – and eaten with delight.
The in-store DEAN & DELUCA Café provides a welcome resting spot in which to enjoy a gourmet sandwich, savory soup, custom salad, or a home-baked pastry accompanied by DEAN & DELUCA’s signature, a steaming pink strawberry latte.
