A grand “Bon appétit!” signifies only one thing… Les Deux Coqs is open for business and ready to invite South Australians into the wonderful world of authentic French cuisine. The cosy space is nestled in the bustling Adelaide Central Markets, and although the architectural elements—like the black glazing bar windows onlooking the kitchen—bring a fresh European twist, the little shop looks as though it has been there since day dot.
Store owners, Bastien Verslype and Katia Vincon, fell in love with South Australia for its famous food and wine culture, deeming it the perfect place to set up shop. With traditional French favourites like Saucisson, Black Olive Tapenade, Rillettes and classic Coconut Macaroons, you can practically hear the accordions playing as Les Deux Coqs take you on a magical trip through the French countryside.
Les Deux Coqs, which translates to “two roosters”, was inspired by the town of Saint Amour Bellevue in Burgundy where Bastian spent time growing up on his grandparent’s farm. After ten years in the industry, the fervour for food continued to flourish and the brand naturally took form. The result: a combination of high quality ingredients and traditional artisan methods which bring a heavenly slice of France to the streets of Adelaide.
The couple’s passion for food and love for bringing people together truly radiates from their carefully curated goods. Not only is there a diverse range from both sweet and savoury categories to tingle every tastebud, the food reflects premium quality and is sold within an affordable price range. Boasting a preservative free status, most of their products have a naturally long shelf life and can be stored at room temperature; the perfect market addition for your kitchen cabinet.
If you’re a fan of meat, cheese, pastries and all things delicious, this vibrant little hotspot might just be for you. Find Bastien and Katia at stall 2 at the Adelaide Central Market.
