Le Vert Pré

Delicatessen ,  Grocery ,  Cheese shop at Valenciennes

  • The rendez-vous of lovers of fine and authentic cuisine! The pre green; a shop that makes me salivate. Of course, I go for its wide selection of quality cheese made by renowned craftsmen. Raw milk cheeses (and many more) that are easy to choose with the expert advice of Jocelyn Deraed, the owner. One of my favorites? The mimolette. Here you will necessarily find one to your taste; half-old (6 months), or extra-old (more than 24 months!). And then in the embarrassment of choice, do as most customers leave "carte blanche" to Jocelyn to build a cheese platter and why not choose the wine that will agree with. Good to know ! The Pré Vert is not just a cheese factory. Corine, Jocelyn's wife is inexhaustible about it. Since the resumption of trade in March 2014, it has become a prestigious "mouth trade", where "stars of good food" coexist. Rare wines, renowned hams, quality delicatessen, delicatessen, and exceptional products such as Poilâne bread and Bonnat chocolate. It is even recently, one of the good regional addresses referenced by Gault & Millau. There is enough to make a whole cheese no? David Boukla.
