Fromagerie Goncourt

dairy bar fromagerie goncourt | parisbymouth.com

This fromagerie is a welcome addition in the 11th where there’s an abundance of quality restaurants, but a serious lack of places to buy great cheese. Don’t miss the fresh dairy bar by the door where you can buy fromage frais, ricotta, and housemade cervelle de canut (a tangy cheese dip from Lyon flavored with fresh herbs and shallots) in bulk. Clément Brossault did a Tour de France of fromage on his bicycle to meet and build relationships with artisanal cheese producers before he opened his beautiful shop near Goncourt. The trip paid off and the shop is stocked with a wide variety of competitively priced cheeses.  Raw milk, which can be hard to find due to its short shelf life, is delivered here from Normandy twice weekly.

Reviews of interest

Condé Nast Traveler (2015) “This shop in the hip 11th arrondissement is the result of owner Clément Brossault’s two-month cycling trip to discover the regional cheeses of France. Broussault knows many of the producers personally, and there’s a particularly nice selection from the Savoie like Persillé de Tignes, Tome des Bauges, and Dent du Chat.”

Les Echos (2014) “Pour devenir fromager, Clément Brossault a pris son vélo et fait le tour de France durant deux mois. Ainsi il est allé à la rencontre des plus beaux terroirs fromagers et en a choisi une belle vingtaine, affinés localement, qu’il vend avec amour et anecdotes… Depuis il en a découvert d’autres…  mais bon… ce ne sera jamais la même émotion!”
