It has been more than 5 years since The Essential Ingredient began looking after the culinary needs of the region’s aspiring home cooks, as well as some of the best restaurants and delicatessens in the area, including the Hunter Valley.
The ever-growing availability of exciting new products has meant that a much larger premises became necessary.
On Saturday 30 October 2010, The Essential Ingredient moved to arguably the most fashionable ‘foodie’ destination in Newcastle region. Now located at 219 Darby Street, Cooks Hill and with ample off-street parking, The Essential Ingredient is now a true destination shopping experience.
As well as the usual offering of quality ingredients, exclusive cookware and all the latest (and classic) cook books, it will also be adding a ‘mini-market’ that holds a Café, a comprehensive Cheese Display, a comfortable cook book-reading area and a well-appointed Cooking School.
The Essential Cooking School will host classes that will showcase the talents of the best local and nationally renowned chefs and food identities. It will also be available for special corporate events.
So come in and take the time to browse The Essential Ingredient Newcastle’s incredible range of ingredients, cookware and books, and linger a little longer for a great coffee, or perhaps even try on a chef’s jacket in the Superman-style telephone box changing room.
