Crows Nest Woolworths Gets a MakeoverNovember 7, 2020
Pop in to Woolworths Crows Nest and you’ll notice lots of new features. The store still offers a large selection of fresh food but in a new space designed to fit somewhere between your local green grocer and an international food market. Here’s a rundown from Woolworths on what’s on offer:
The Deli and Cheese Room
“Inspired by a classic Italian delicatessen, the Deli glass cabinets are brimming with cured meats, salami, salads and antipasti from local and international producers. The team can even slice your meats just the way you like it – thick, thin or shaved. The refreshed deli also now offers new premium smallgoods, including Barossa fine foods smoked free range turkey and Barossa double smoked gourmet bacon sliced the way you like it.
Our new Cheese Room is a cheese lover’s paradise showcasing delicious local and imported speciality cheeses. If you can’t decide, why not consult our in-house cheese expert, Cathy, and find the perfect cheese for any occasion. From local soft cheeses and truffle-infused French Brie to beautifully aged Italian Parmigiano- Reggiano.
Meals and Veggies To Go
For those that love cooking but find time is at a premium, we have a range of veggies that have already been sliced and diced for you, as well as a hot-meals servery with a well-stocked selection of succulent meats and sides. It’s a great place to pick up something convenient and delicious. You’ll also love our range of easy, fresh dishes and sides to compliment your meals. If you’ve only got time to grab something on the go, we have delicious options like tender meats with sides of roast potatoes or steamed green beans, fresh sushi, flatbread wraps and on the go rolls. If you prefer to do some of the cooking yourself, you can choose something like our crisp salads, and locally sourced French trimmed lamb cutlets from the butcher.”
The Produce Section
From the farm to your table, we take great pride in partnering with Aussie farmers to bring you fruit and veg that’s fresh, crisp and full of flavour. There’s also a wider range of Australian herbs that are fresh, vibrant and aromatic. You can also select fruit and veg from a section called ‘The Odd Bunch’. It’s made up of fresh produce that looks a bit different, but is just as beautiful on the inside. Not only does it save you money but it helps our farmers sell more too. You’ll also discover a new large loose tomato and potato range.
Fresh Ideas Kitchen and Cooking Demonstrations
Whether you are a natural in the kitchen or making your way to the next level of home cooking, you’ll find all the inspiration you need in our new Fresh Ideas Kitchen located on the lower level. From Thursdays to Sundays, our chef Brad Pattison will hold cooking demonstrations at least twice a day. These sessions are designed to be more than just a demo, as they’ll highlight selected ingredients and discuss their provenance, preparation, and various uses. With more than 16 years’ experience, Brad comes to our fresh ideas kitchen after four years as head chef at our Sydney headquarters.
All the fresh meat you’ll find in store comes from right here in Australia. Good farming practices are important to us, which is why all of our Woolworths branded fresh chicken is RSPCA approved. You can judge a high quality cut of meat by its tenderness, juiciness and flavour. After all, those are the markers that make our new range of locally grown marbled Wagyu beef, both popular and highly sought after. Our grass-fed beef comes from free range, pasture-fed cattle with no added hormones, which means they’re free to roam and graze on natural pastures. We have a succulent new range of Wagyu beef available in store. Choose from our grass-fed Wagyu or our Wagyu beef with a marble score of MB 6-7 or MB 8-9. Ask our friendly butchers to cut just the way you like it.
We are fully committed to being environmentally sustainable, so much has continued to change behind the scenes. Our refrigeration system now produces less CO2 and we’ve converted our lights to LED. You can also recycle soft plastics in our store.
Crafted to perfection. Proudly made with Australian wheat flour, the sourdough bread recipes have been crafted by an expert artisan baker. Using time-honoured methods, the 40-hour recipe loaves begin with a traditional culture, they’re then slowly fermented, hand shaped, and rested before being fully baked on stone. Our Crafted range of sourdough comes in four varieties – White, Dark Rye, Ancient Grains & Sprouted Seeds, and Olive. They’re simply delicious toasted and buttered for breakfast; dipped in a bowl of soup; or used to make a memorable sandwich. Also try our new freshly made flatbread range, perfect for burritos, wraps or pizza bases, this versatile bread i made in store throughout the day. Try our new Blue Corn, Spinach, Beetroot, White and Wholemeal flavours.
Crows Nest Community Focus
Being part of the local community is very important to us. If you’re a local business or community group in the area, please feel free to use our community noticeboard for your next event or service messages. We’ve also partnered with local organisation OzHarvest to help provide meals to people in need. Last year, Woolworths helped OzHarvest provide over 2 million meals. And we’re looking forward to serving up more meals this year.
We’ve got a great variety of Australian seafood, perfect for a light dinner or an indulgent family feast. Ready to bake, grill, fry, BBQ or enjoy as is, we have an exceptional array of seafood in our new fish market. Our range covers everything from juicy prawns to the freshest fish fillets and 100% Tasmanian salmon, packed with omega-3 goodness. All of our fish is responsibly sourced from Australian waters. Just one of the great reasons to make our new fish market your local. Need help? To enjoy the catch of the day, our friendly team are on hand to help you choose the right fish for the dish. Be sure to ask our team what they’ve been buying and what they’ll be taking home for dinner.
