milk & HONEY = chic & unique

Posted on July 14, 2011


milk & HONEY, as many in Dubai will already know, is a fabulous gourmet grocer and nothing short of frightfully chic and utterly unique.

Nestled on the Palm and quietly taking Dubai by storm with its divine collection of the world’s best loved organic products, the pristine shelves are weighed down with rows and rows of more-ish foods from some of the world’s most exclusive food producers.

And now, thanks to the kind team behind the scene who kindly delivered me a bag full of goodies to try out earlier this week, my own kitchen shelves are weighed down with products from their Loving Earth range.

Exclusive in Dubai to milk & HONEYLoving Earth hails from Melbourne and was borne with the aim of sourcing and sharing indigenous foods from around the world that have amazing nutritional qualities.  I wrote about this very concept only recently in my posts Jungle-icious and Cha Cha Chia. Loving Earth believes in eating foods that are grown organically in a sustainable way and are then minimally processed and enjoyed in their purest possible form. Only then can we nurture our own health and wellbeing and at the same time nurture the health and wellbeing of our planet. 

Amongst my goodies were bars of Raw Organic Dark Chocolate, Wild Crafted Gubinge Powder, Raw Organic Camu Camu Powder, Yacon Syrup, Chilli Shiraz Paste, Grapeseed Crackers and Buckinis amongst various other exotic sounding foods, all beautifully packaged and all bursting with nutritional profiles that put most other products we eat day in day out to shame.

And, I have to confess, all are delicious and all the more enjoyable, safe in the knowledge that each and every product has been sourced and developed in a healthy, fair and sustainable way.

Anyone who loves high quality produce will love milk & HONEY.  In fact,  anyone who loves food full stop.  You can’t help but fantacise about being a contender on Master Chef when you browse the delights on offer.

The Palm store is easily accessible to all but  personally I’m delighted to hear that their second instalment is being planned at Meadows Town Centre and several other stores will open thereafter.  Perfect.  Just wait till I start combining running training with my pack with a trip to their store.  Meadows Town Centre often features on my route after all!

milk & HONEY, I’ve decided, is to food what Choos are to shoes … synonymous with quality and class and a must-have in every cupboard.

But don’t just take my word for it. 

As every women knows, once Choos were discovered, our soles / souls changed forever. Ditto with milk & HONEY. I know where I’ll be going now for my fix of Loving Earth.

PS. A super cool touch that I can’t fail to mention is their 100% recyclable paper bags – the store has a ‘REUSE REBATE’ initiative giving an instant discount to customers who bring back their milk & HONEY bag to reuse. Simple yet fiendishly clever!
