Description

Cergy-Pontoise is a “new town” created from scratch to the north-west of Paris in the early 1970s. Its futuristic landscapes lie at the edge of the Vexin, one of the Paris region’s main agricultural strongholds, packed with fertile soils and prosperous historic villages.

These two contrasting worlds are linked by the foodtruck of Thibault Giercowicz, who, after graduating from the local university, decided to go back there to feed his former associates. His foodtruck can often be found on the campus, where he introduces students to the joys of fresh local produce and home cooking.

The simple but effective menu (salads, soups, sandwiches, burgers, desserts, etc.) showcases the small-scale producers of the Vexin, with vegetables from a market gardener in Livilliers, goat’s cheese from the Ribiollet family in Chauvry, mustard from the Ferme de la Distillerie in Gouzangrez, bread from an artisan baker and meat from an artisan butcher in Auvers-sur-Oise… Food supply chains don’t get much shorter than that! And all of it at rock-bottom prices, to show that local fare from the Paris region is affordable for all…
