In Paris, a three-star chef is highlighting Parisian produce
When you think of regional produce, it’s rare to think of the capital … Chef Yannick Alléno is showing it off with his Parisian bistro which makes ultra-fresh and high-quality local produce available to all.
We often forget Paris’s place in the history of French gastronomy. And yet it owes a lot to Paris. Chef Yannick Alléno, a three-star Michelin chef, has decided to pay tribute.
He has opened Le Terroir Parisien, an authentic bistro annexed to the Maison de la Mutualité. On the menu are emblematic recipes from the capital, prepared with the best products from the region.
The prices are designed to be accessible to as many people as possible, with an average price of 25 euros. The venue hosts events like charity dinners and organises markets for producers to increase direct trading.
Other innovations are also on show, such as a ‘Rillette bar’, which is open from 6pm, or the sale of takeaway ‘apéro bags’ of local produce.
The formula is working, as a second Terroir Parisien has been opened in the second arrondissement.
