List of products by brand BOUTARGUE MEMMI
Bottarga or Bottarga?
None. Two different terms to designate the same exceptional product, thousands of salted and dried mullet eggs. At Gérard Memmi, originally from Tunisia, it will be Boutargue with a "B" because the letter "P" does not exist in the Arabic alphabet.
A true family story, the Memmi company was created in the 1970s by Elie Memmi, Gérard's father. At the time the bet was daring. After a career as a water polo champion with the Tunis team, Elie began importing mullet eggs into France and developing a recipe, still kept secret, to obtain the very famous Boutargue. It was in 1989 in Ivry sur Seine, out of sight, that La Maison Memmi was established. In 1994, Gérard took over the management with the desire to preserve the know-how transmitted by his father and remains very attached to the quality of its raw materials.
Other times, other customs, in the face of growing demand Gérard set out to conquer the world and his Boutargue is now enjoying great success in the United States, Japan, Israel and even Russia.
Maison Memmi was awarded a Coq d'Or by the Guide des Gourmands and has two Stars in the Guide Ferniot.
