As you stroll through Saint Germain des Prés, meet a breeder-butcher who uses totally innovative methods.
What to Expect
Not far from the little butchers whose name comes from the old meat stalls set up in the 19th century in the Saint Germain district, this visit invites you to meet a completely new kind of breeder-butcher. In his search for the best, this butcher breeds his own meat selected for specific qualities that he matures through special methods. He preserves his produce using a unique intracellular crystallisation process called hibernation which preserves all the flavour of the meat. This establishment is bringing about a new era in butchery, which draws not only on years of lab research and technological and genetic knowledge but also on family know-how handed down with passion through six generations.
