“At Dean & Deluca, we provide service not just with a big smile,” says Mr Kenneth Low, Director of Kitchen Language, the F&B arm of Far East Organisation that brought the store here. “Our knowledgeable staff, each of them equipped with iPad stored with product information, can provide informative advice to the customers,” he says.

The Dean & Deluca staff, Mr Low adds, can also print recipes, product information and even plan a menu for the customers; a selling point that he thinks will set them apart from the existing gourmet stores.
