Cotogna began its Sunday Supper events last summer, offering diners a four-course prix fixe menu for $50. This Sunday, the Jackson Square restaurant will play host to guest chef/vendor Olivier Cordier of Olivier’s Butchery in San Francisco.
Olivier was born in France and from a young age, grew up with cattle ranching and butchery in his blood. After spending years as a cattle rancher and manager at one of the largest poultry companies in France, he moved to San Francisco, opening Olivier’s Butchery in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco in 2011.
The shop is an old fashion French boucherie featuring a wide variety of traditional French and American cuts, beef, veal, pork, lamb and homemade sausages. Cordier personally visits each of the ranchers he works with, ensuring that he is not only getting the highest quality animals in his shop, but also that the ranchers are using sustainable methods.
