La Boucherie

 The local butcher is Thierry Boutault. That's him in the photo above, prepping pork chops for me. His shop is in the Grande rue, Preuilly sur Claise. I like him and his carefully sourced local meat and shop there often. He is usually prepared to have a chat about more than just the weather and it's good French practice for me. It's rare to go in there and be the only customer, so I also enjoy eavesdropping on others' conversations with him, how they order and what they order.
A range of meat on display above. The two cuts closest to the camera are 'part leg of lamb for grilling or roasting' and 'boned rolled roast pork'.


  1. It's so good to have a real local butcher! The Poupeaus in GP have locally sourced meat and very good it is too. Not the cheapest, but you can get the unusual cuts such as beef cheek which are excellent value for money.

  2. cause i leave in preuilly i think mr boutault is great butcher and a funny guy how to say in english the french word "bavard"course in good way to say ...

  3. William: I would say 'chatty'. That suggests he is friendly and talkative, but not a gossip or a bore.
