Urban dairies in Paris

GUIDE TO CHEESE IN PARIS

Normally, dairies are quite close to the source of milk, and this is most often in the countryside. I have just been to France (Normandy and Pays de la Loire) and therefore I do know how many miles or kilometers you sometimes have to drive to reach the dairies…

But in recent years, small dairies are popping up in Paris. In the middle of the big city and far away from the milk animals. These urban dairies are an attraction per se and consumers as well as local restaurants happily buy their products.

Use the addresses below and go see for yourself next time in Paris.

Stop #1: Laiterie de Paris

Laiterie de Paris

In the neighborhood of La Goutte d’Or (close to Montmartre in the 18th arrondissement) you find the first Parisian dairy. Run by the young Frenchman Pierre Coulon. He used to work in the legendary cheese store Maison Androut as well as being a cheese maker on his own farm with goats and sheep in West France. Now he is back in Paris and since the end of 2017 he has made yoghurt and cheese (mainly fresh cheese) of organic cow, goat and sheep milk from Bretagne. Besides his own cheeses, the shop carries an assortment of other delicous cheeses.

Stop #2: Laiterie La Chapelle

Laiterie la Chapelle

Not so far away you find another small dairy with a slightly different philosophy. Paul Zindy recieves milk four times a week from farms just outside Paris (and therefore his cheeses are made of cow milk). His focus is local which you can also see in the name of the cheeses. For instance Dormoy which is the name of a nearby metro station. His raw milk cheeses mature on wooden planks and can be seen from the street as well as from the inside of the shop.

Stop #3: Raw milk bufala mozzarella

When I researched for this blog post, I came across this urban dairy in the 11th arrondissement. They make mozzarella from raw bufala milk from Auvergne. Nanina is the name, and it is on my to-do list for the next trip to Paris.
