How many artisan ham-makers are left in
Paris? …. Just one! The only one to have resisted the mass industrialisation of
cold meats is Doumbea, a company run by Yves Le Guel. Most
cooked hams are blends which include many additives. Do you want to know what a
genuine cooked ham tastes like? Come try the ham at Le Prince de Paris. Here
at Yves’ place, “One leg comes in and one ham goes out!”without any added colours or phosphate. His production
workshop is located on Rue de Charonne. And everything is done by hand. It
takes two days of preparation, then the ham is cooked for eight to nine hours.
Some 75% of his production is sold within Paris to the greatest chefs, Elysée
Palace and Cosse butchery on Rue Poncelet, only a few steps from
your hotel. It does cost a little more, at €1.50 per slice. But I assure you,
this will be a mind-blowing flavour experience. You’ve never tasted genuine
cooked ham before!
