New York food gods Dean & Deluca have opened in Singapore to much excitement (there were people queuing up outside the store on launch night). Out of all the alluring artisan produce on sale in this chic deli, I’m most enamoured with the Hamptons Honey Company bear. The honey is made in Southampton, the stylish New Yorker’s summer retreat, by what must be some very upmarket bees. Apparently the unpasturised, unfiltered honey was originally sold just to Hamptons residents, so a keen as mustard Dean & Deluca sales associate told me. Now Singaporeans can buy it too. And in this sweet as you like bear bottle, who could resist?
Dean & Deluca, 4th Floor Orchard Central, 181 Orchard Road, Singapore.
