  2. 2. Son and grand-son of a butcher, the Lesage company, is first and foremost the story of a family who has successfully passed on, over time, its heritage, its know-how and the desire to always discover new outstanding products. The adventure began in the 50s with Guy Lesage. He opened his first butchery, back then located rue de Tournai in Lille, France. Quickly it becomes a flourishing business. It was in the 60s that the butchery moved to Chemy on a plot of 10,000 m², in order to associate a small cattle breed of Charolais, and some lambs. The values of work, love and respect for the product seduce customers, who are more and more loyal. In 1985, Franck Lesage takes over his father’s business and begins expanding the company. The company is now called Lesage & Fils and now has a more powerful tool to produce and respond to new markets, new customers, but also new regulatory requirements. In the mid 2000s, both sons, François & Pierre, joined the company. It will then take another turn towards other territories of Europe, still towards better quality products, which are back then very little on the local market, to provide its customers quality meats and novelties: Scottish Beef PGI, Angus beef, Ibérico Pork Bellota, Ibérico Charcuterie... The northern company retains and attracts more and more restaurants, in 2010, nearly 600 customers only in the Nord-Pas de Calais region. In 2011, Lesage & Fils innovates and begins importing WAGYU beef and American Black Angus beef by selecting the best producers in the world. In the meantime, Lesage developped its own maturation room for Angus and Simmental and begins to seduce restaurants avid of quality throughout France and Belgium. Today, Lesage & Fils has 80 employees who work daily with rigor and passion to produce high quality product that will appeal to the most demanding chefs.

  4. 4. WAGYU BEEF, THE EXCELLENCE OF BEEF. P R E S T I G E
  5. 5. 5 Origin : Chile & Australia Originally raised in KOBE, wagyu cattle are placed into a calm environment, and fed with a very strict alimentation, without added antibiotics or stimulants, for a length of time of 300 to 540 days. Some techniques include the addition of beer in feeding cattle, sake massages or even playing classical music in their environment. These techniques provide a tender meat and a marbled flesh as desired, which confers to the product an extraordinary gustative quality. An exceptional taste : Wagyu’s marbling gives it a unique fondant. In fact, the fat of this meat melts at 25 °C and leaves on the tongue a unique flavor of butter. A healthy product : it contains 30% of omega 3 and 6 more than other meats and thus provides the body with the corresponding benefits. Its fat is impoverishes of cholesterol, compared to other breeds. A unique visual : Its marbling is its trademark and thus allows us to appreciate its quality to the naked eye. Lesage Prestige offers cattle of 450 to 540 days of traditional breeding, to offer you one of the best product on the market. On a global scale, exceptional meats are classified on a BMS scale ranging from 1 to 12. 1 being a very lean meat and 12 being a very marbled meat. At Lesage Prestige, you will find, for the Wagyu, meats classified 4 +, 6 +, 8 + or the ultimate grade 10 +, depending on your preferences and your budget.

  7. 7. It is in the heart of the Great Plains of the United States that the American Angus is raised in the open air. A controlled feeding consisting exclusively of grass, followed by a diet based on selected grains carefully chosen for one hundred days, gives the meat a special taste. Cereals are all from the United States, allowing a short supply cycle for optimum quality. Our beef is 100% certified Black Angus American. The Black Angus breed originated in the area of Aberdeen, Scotland. The first importation into the United States began in the nineteenth century and since then, the country has made it one of its major gourmet strengths. In addition to the initial selection, which retains only the best strains of the breed, it occurs after slaughter, control of meat quality in three stages, in order to always offer you the best: 1/ Control of fat colour 2/ Control of the meat colour 3/ Control of the marbling In addition to its remarkable taste and texture, this meat contributes effectively to the development of a balanced diet. Composed of many daily essential nutrients, such as iron, protein, vitamin B and zinc. Black Angus gives your body what your mouth tastes. A real pleasure. The characteristics of this beef are multiple and meet international standards. A classification is established according to different quality criteria: taste, tenderness and marbling. This marbling, which is the infiltration of fat, gives full flavour to the meat. The Black Angus is also certified since 1999, non-hormone treated, according to the standard quality NHTC in order to be imported in the European Union.

  8. 8. P R E S T I G E BLONDE GALICIA, “RUBIA GALLEGA”, TRADITION AND EXCELLENCE.
  9. 9. Native breed of the Galician area, in north western Spain, near the Atlantic Ocean, the Rubia Gallega, translated as "Blonde Galicia" in reference to his skin colour and his breeding region, is a robust breed of butcher’s tradition. Its main caracteristics are its high concentration of intramuscular fat (marbling) and its slightly spicy and salty taste, probably due to its proximity to the ocean, because these animals are fed exclusively of grass, clover and plants that grow only in this area of special climate. Each animal has a large space to grow, undergoing no stress throughout the breeding process until slaughter, which is essential for the wellbeing of the animal in order to get a tender meat. The veals, which are never separated from their mothers, receive the certification "PGI Ternera Gallega" when they are pure bred and weaned before 10 months (7-8 months on average). Our teams of professionals have travelled multiple times to Galicia to select a partner slaughterhouse which offers an excellent product, both in terms of regularity of marbling, as well as tenderness, or even maturation on the bone. The maturation process consists of leaving ("ageing") the meat on its bone, which optimises the tenderness of the product, and also by drying, to concentrate flavours in the heart of the meat. As a result, we obtain meat which is extremely tender, especially with incomparable flavours. With the Rubia Gallega, its maturation is between 25 and 30 days. To summarise, we offer an exceptional product which is enhanced by the know-how of several generations, because maturation is a real profession, as temperature, humidity, and AC are all parameters that need to be mastered in order to achieve a mature quality.

  10. 10. DRY AGING, A FAMILY’S SIGNATURE LESAGE PRESTIGE. P R E S T I G E
  11. 11. Dry aged chamber Dry-aging remains something very specific, in order to achieve this process in the best way possible, the selection of raw materials is a key step. Each cut of meat that enters the dry aging chamber is selected by our chef Butcher who, by his experience and expertise, will ensure optimum quality at the end of the process. Different criteria are taken into account: the age of the animal, the fattening, the meat colour, the marbling, the conformation etc. Our dry aging chamber dedicated to this speciality : « Lesage Prestige vintage cellar », represents a real olfactory pleasure every time we enter it. In this cell, the humidity and the circulation of the air as well as the temperature are all closely controlled continuously. Dry aging is a physical phenomenon where the natural enzymes (proteases) degrade muscle fibers. This process softens the meat and allows also the fat to melt into the muscle fibres. This phase lasts about twenty days. When the meat comes out of its cold cell, the butcher must still work on it. The meat develops an outer layer, a black colour that is necessary to remove. Behind this layer, the meat remains particularly red because of the natural crust that has formed around and therefore protected it against dryness and bacterial growth. Each meat is unique, it is for this reason that our chef butcher will assess the meat at their optimum dry aging with an exceptional tenderness and incomparable aroma. Our experience of 5 generations of butchers has allowed the Lesage family to develop a real expertise in dry aging, which is why we recommend dry-aged meats of 3 weeks to 6 weeks. Lesage Prestige dry aged, on demand, a wide range of breed such as the Normande, Simmental, Black Angus, Rubia Gallega...
