A family story
My parents, Michel and Arlette, shared a passion for food and natural products. In 1965, they opened their own shop in a small town in the heart of the Auvergne in France. They made lovely pate de campagne, delicious sausages, yummy ham, and fantastic pastries. All made with the best ingredients. In those days, although nobody talked about 'organic' food, chicken meat contained only chicken, and water chicken had not been invented.
We, the children, were brought up in this wonderful environment, full of lovely smells and mouth watering food. Our parents worked very hard and still managed to lead a healthy life. We had a vegetable garden where we ate warm tomatoes just picked from the vine. The strawberries and the raspberries were melting in our mouths. I remember the heavy wicker basket, made by a local guy we knew, full of green beans and courgettes of all sizes. We did not use pesticides.
Our grandmothers were making 'magical' herbal concoctions to heal our little scratches and bruises. Once, I spent a whole night with a leaf of red cabbage around my thumb which was sore and painful. The following morning, the leaf was dry and really thin. It had taken the shape of my finger which was cured.
In 1990, my brothers, Eric and Lionel, who trained as professional caterers and worked in the family business, took over and carried on the tradition of good healthy tasty organic food. At Maison Plasse , we only use the finest ingredients, the food is handmade and quality is a paramount. Our pride is to cook, prepare and bring to your table the best organic food. In 2003, Eric and Lionel opened a new state of the art building with professional facilities that earned them the certification to despatch their products within the EEC.
Having seen many places in the world, we chose England as our home. One thing though is certain: we miss our food. My husband and I have decided to set up this website because we would like to share those wonderful products with you and hope you enjoy them as much as we do. We love our tasty organic food. It is a way of life. Eating well is all about feeling good and healthy.
Simply taste our food. If you like it, tell your friends if you don't please tell us.
