Who: Native South Tyrolean, Thea Wunderer, has been in London for over fifteen years. A desire for flavours from home and a distinct niche in the London market led to the birth of Exquisite Deli.
Why: Located in the Alps on the Northern border of Italy, the cuisine of South Tyrol offers up distinct flavours in its mix of alpine culture and Italian sophistication. Rural traditions fuse with Mediterranean influences to create unique locally sourced produce, such as Speck, gently smoked ham, and Schüttelbrot, crunchy flat bread.
Where: Currently retailing in London at Borough Market; every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
