In the lovely Oxfordshire town of Thame, in an elegant period building close to the bustling marketplace, our artisan food shop is at the very heart of everything we do at What’s Cooking. There is no place to buy fresher, tastier food than here, right below the kitchens where our expert chefs work to create delicious handcrafted fare daily.
Fresh from Our Kitchens or Locally Sourced
Even from the outside, the shop is a sensory experience; tantalising aromas drift from our kitchens upstairs, and the windows onto the high street present a visual feast of mouth-watering food, freshly prepared just hours or even minutes before. Push open the door and delight in the scent of rich chocolate brownies, freshly-baked savoury pastries, home-cooked dishes and fine cheese; let your eyes feast on succulent green olives, scrumptious salads, mouth-watering ready meals and big, fluffy meringues. Everything you can see and smell is fresh out of our kitchens just feet away, or has been personally sourced by us from local, artisan producers who share our commitment to excellence and quality.
All the appetising food in our shop has a story to tell, and our knowledgeable, passionate staff will be pleased to enlighten you, but of course, the food itself is the best storyteller. No descriptive prose or sumptuous images can ever really do justice to our products. There’s really only one way to fully appreciate the difference in our food – and that’s by tasting it!
