Defend the French horticultural sector
Created by Audrey Venant and Mathilde Bignon, Désirée is a social and solidarity economy company aiming to defend the French horticultural sector. Reconverted between 2014 and 2016 after several years in food purchases, Audrey and Mathilde work in several flower shops and travel around France to meet horticultural producers. In 2017, they created Désirée with the aim of working exclusively with French flowers. The first café-florist Désirée opened in November 2017 at La Folie Méricourt, in the 11th arrondissement of Paris. In July 2020 opens the second Désirée; “au bercail”, in the 19th arrondissement where the founders have lived for 10 years.
Désirée is a place where you have fun while consciously consuming flowers… but also pastries. Because the two young women have also chosen to offer seasonal recipes highlighting nature and its products ! A challenge that the pastry chefs Anna and Pascale brilliantly take up, working with passion behind the bay window that separates the kitchens from the workbench where the bouquets are prepared. Désirée: definitely a friendly place to live where optimism and people take precedence.
