His career has taken him all over the world, including Japan. He has written many books on meat where he shares his knowledge and secrets with the public.
Growing up, Hugo Desnoyer didn’t really know what he wanted to do as an adult. He started with mechanics, but quickly realized that this was not what he was meant to do. When he discovered butchery during an internship with his father’s butcher, he completely fell in love with the profession. Eager to learn, he moved to Paris where he still practice his craft, which has become his true passion.
His career takes a turn when he opens his first butchery in 1998, in the 14th arrondissement of Paris. Through word of mouth, he builds a remarkable reputation and his shop becomes the place for meat in Paris, including for the capital’s Michelin-starred restaurants.
His expertise is nowadays sought around the world. In France, Hugo provides his customers with an amazing “Table d’Hôte” experience at his butcher shop on 28 Rue du Dr. Blanche, 75016 Paris. Customers can choose their meat before eating it right on-the-spot.
