About Alexandre Polmard
Alexandre Polmard, the artisan French butcher specialising in top quality “vintage beef”, has taken the butchery world by storm. A farmer, breeder and butcher, Polmard is the sixth generation running his family’s business, which was founded in 1846. In the 1990s his father and grandfather revolutionised the way meat is aged by creating a special treatment called "hibernation” in which cold air is blown over the meat in a -43C enclosed space at a speed of 120 km per hour, for a feeling of -120C.
While dry-aged beef is typically matured for just several weeks, every cut of beef from the “Boucherie Polmard Paris” uses this hibernation method to freeze and preserve beef for up to 15 years of aging while retaining the quality, flavour and texture. The quality begins with the company’s Blonde d’Aquitaine cattle which are raised on the Polmard family’s farm in Saint-Mihiel, in Northeastern France. The Blonde Aquintaine is comparable to the most expensive breeds of cattle, such as Blank Angus and Kobe. Only four cattle are butchered per week. Once butchered, the cuts of beef are prepared for hibernation at the property’s on-site laboratory. It is the rarity of Polmard’s vintage beef that makes it especially valuable. Through the hibernation treatment, Polmard is able to preserve the most exquisite, aged beef in the world.
As per Polmard, the cattle lead a stress-free life out in the open air on his family’s farm, where he talks to them each day. He adds that “All the love and attention we give our animals comes through on the plate when you taste the meat". When cows are under stress (ie: in enclosed sheds), their bodies produce glycogen, lactic acid and adrenaline, which causes changes in the acidity of their muscles, resulting in beef that is not as tender or flavourful.
Polmard’s beef has captivated the world’s most famous chefs and restaurants, with only a select few featuring his cuts on their menus. (One of Alexandre Polmard ‘s cuts sells for approximately US$3200!)
To sample this unique beef, you can either visit the “Polmard Eleveur Boucher” shop in Paris’s St. Germain-des- Prés quarter on Rue de l’Abbaye or wait months to buy it online. Alternatively, you can make a dinner booking at one of the few restaurants in the world which serve his exclusive meat.
Polmard, who is extremely selective about the few international restaurants at which his beef is served, has chosen InterContinental Hong Kong’s famous STEAK HOUSE winebar + grill to feature a selection of his cuts on the menu between June 9 – August 31, 2017.
