Golosi Food Emporium

Golosi Food Emporium is one of the most impressive specialty food shops on the Gold Coast. Proving that you don’t have to be big to be great, this food emporium showcases fine produce and deli items from Australia and overseas in a beautiful setting.

From the moment we set food in the door, we’re in foodie heaven. Everywhere we look there are bursts of colour and deliciously tempting displays. Goods fill the rustic wall shelving of the shop and a large central table, well-spaced enough to enable an unhindered circuit of the store, lingering to examine each product, collecting trophies as we go.

Golosi 1Fresh flowers line the doorway in buckets, and tabletop baskets are filled with artisan breads such as organic sourdough and French pastries.

Owner Selena Quested tells us how she travels overseas to source products for her store. You won’t find anything there that’s in local supermarkets – it’s all from small Australian producers with a focus on organic, and the best she can source from overseas, including her ‘top shelf’ specialty: limited edition aged balsamic vinegars. The shop smells gorgeous due to the huge bunches of flowers at the front of the shop, and Selena’s specially made candles which would make the perfect gift.

gcfw-10Wall shelves are packed with Jamie Oliver’s produce range, Italian pastas and passata sauces, curries and spice mixes, Italian nougat, Valrhona and Delicaseys chocolates, Byron Bay and Sonoma mueslis, a great range of Pukara Estate oils and vinegars, Italian olive and truffle oils, T2 specialty teas and Henry Langdon chai and cocoa, alongside a range of gorgeous Joost Bakker ceramic baking dishes. You can even buy a woven market basket to carry your goodies home!

Golosi 5BIn the deli and fridge sections, Bruny Island products take pride of place amongst a great range of local and imported cheeses and curds, alongside antipasto, Stella May pâtés and terrines, and Salumi Australia’s smallgoods. There’s no ‘fat’ to trim in the displays. Open-faced and well laid out, every single product we look at is exceptionally well-chosen; the best of the best.

Golosi 4“It’s all about sourcing the best products we can,” says Selena, who obviously puts her retail purchasing background to good use. “Even if we don’t have the product you want, we can source it to order. Truffles? Yes, we can get them for you! Platters, gift baskets and picnic baskets can be made to order, filled with the products you request.”

gcfw-9Selena’s passion for food and her ‘can do’ attitude pervades the shop: a pride in the quality of such artisan products as well as excellent service to inform your choices.

Small? Maybe, but certainly exceptional! A visit to Golosi Food Emporium is an absolute delight!
