About La Parisienne Pâtés
For over 20 years, Melbourne's La Parisienne Pâtés has specialised in French Charcuterie products, in particular delicious traditional pâtés, terrines and rillettes. Co-founder Stéphane Langlois is Australia's only genuine, French charcutier. He was trained traditionally in the Bourgogne (Burgundy) region. La Parisienne Pâtés create their tasty French smallgoods in Melbourne, selling wholesale across Australia as well as from their Carlton café and French delicatessen.
La Parisienne Pâtés was founded over twenty years ago right here in Melbourne, but the story goes further back than that. Stéphane Langlois, Saone-et-Loire Mercurey trained, co-owner and head charcutier taps into the finest French charcuterie traditions.
Mercurey, Saône-et-Loire is a famous traditional wine area in Burgundy with a rich tradition in French smallgoods, or charcuterie, as it is called in France.
Of course, while Stéphane draws skillfully on his French heritage, we make our charcuterie products here in Melbourne, serving them up first from our delicatessen on Lygon St (which has now moved across the road and expanded to become a french café as well) and now from over 200 outlets around Melbourne and indeed, around Australia.
The business is managed by Stéphane’s wife and the business co-founder, Muriel who is kept very busy responding to the growing demand of the company’s wholesale French smallgoods while also managing the café. The café is a point of difference in Melbourne, as it is very traditional and French, while also catering to the distinct & discerning tastes of Melbournians when it comes to coffee!
La Parisienne Pâtés is something of an icon in Melbourne because traditional French charcuterie is not always easy to find, especially manufactured fresh so close to home. However, if you have dietary needs such as gluten-free products, or a taste for the seriously spicy, you will be happy to note that we can cater to you as well as the most conservative (but enthusiastic) French food gourmandise!
Pop into the café and grab some lunch, taking with you some saucisson, pâtés, terrines or more from our abundant delicatessen fridge. Or if you run a café, restaurant of gourmet retailer of some kind - give Muriel a call today to enquire about our wholesale Charcuterie products.
