A quality craftsman !
Not trivial, the course of David Fleuriel. This native of Normandy was destined to be a cook and his rich career had led him from Joël Robuchon at “Jamin” to Jacques Maximin at the “Diamant Rose”, passing Alain Ducasse at the “Louis XV”, before finding the bubbling “Maximin” in Vence. But his marriage, then his two children, had made him think about a new quality of life. It was then that he decided to learn a new trade in one of the oldest butcher shops in Vence: that of Jacques Harel, which he then bought, defending only the “top” of farm quality.
