St-Rémy Take Out: Eating Well and No Cooking Required!

There’s a new place in St-Rémy-de-Provence that’s perfect for tourists and locals alike. Chez les Frangins (At the Brothers’ Place) is an artisanal rotisserie with everything you need for a delicious dinner at home or a picnic under a shady tree.

Brothers Paul and Victor Granier opened their shop less than a year ago, and business is already booming. The two may be young—27 and 24—but they definitely know what they are doing.

Tempting Dishes

What’s on the rotisserie at Chez les Frangins? There are several kinds of whole roast chicken (including the famous Bresse chicken if you order a day ahead), chicken thighs, pork spare ribs, leg of lamb, sausages, and more. And don’t miss their roast potatoes—small grenaille potatoes cooked with the drippings from the chickens.

The brothers also make various side dishes, like salads, tabouli, and gratins, and work with local partners for things like charcuterie and pâte.

Would you like some chips to go with that? Wine? Organic beer? The brothers partner with the region’s best artisanal producers to offer you everything you need. And if you’d like something sweet to finish your meal, you’ll find goodies like tarts and panna cotta and the delicious French speciality, cannelé.

No Need to Cook!

My wife and I like to pick up a roast chicken and potatoes, then make a salad at home and voilà—dinner is served. We recently hosted a big dinner party, with almost everything provided by the brothers. It was so easy and so good!

If you’d like to drop by and try their food, the brothers serve lunch from 11:30 to 1:30 during the week. And if you want to host a group at home, they also cater onsite, cooking paellas and barbecues for up to 100 people.

Bon appetite!

Keith and Val Van Sickle made their first trip to Provence decades ago, and it was love at first sight. After that, they came back every year until 2008, when they began a part-time life there, splitting their time between Provence and California.

Over the years, they’ve travelled all over Provence, seeing sights both well-known and obscure. Their French friends have introduced them to favourite restaurants and wineries and picnic spots and taught them funny local expressions (not all for polite company).

Keith now shares this local knowledge in his new book, An Insider’s Guide to Provence. Packed with the Van Sickles’ favourite things to see and do, it’s a must-have for anyone travelling to this glorious corner of France.

Keith previously published two books about the couple's experiences in Provence. One Sip at a Time: Learning to Live in Provence, and Are We French Yet?, both are available from Amazon.
