French culinary history comes alive at Musee de l'Art Culinaire, located inside the former home of famed chef and writer Georges Auguste Escoffier. A place of pilgrimage for impassioned foodies from around the globe, the museum pays homage to a legendary figure who many consider the founding father of modern French cuisine. Called the "king of chefs and chef of kings" by French journalists, Escoffier simplified and modernized numerous elaborate preexisting recipes in addition to inventing many of his own. The museum preserves several of the chef's menus and photographs, and highlights the methods he used to introduce organized discipline into professional kitchens.

  • This museum is a must see, not if for y access from the parking lot by the Escoffier, ride to do. Arrived at the Museum at the entrance you are in the mood. several floors are to visit with chocolate and works in beautiful sugar, old pianos, of utensils from another time, photos, old incredible menus. The home is very nice and the correct price.

  • Me who loves cooking and pastry I enjoyed visiting the Museum of Auguste Escoffier. The visit is done pretty fast CA 1 h without rushing. It is done in the House of the grand Chief and mixes the utensils, kitchen, menus and anecdotes with a temporary exhibition of dress on the theme of the kitchen and sculptures in chocolate, sugar or pastillage. We pass a good time, the entry price is really reasonable (€5 for adults and discounted for seniors, students and children) and especially you have fun at the end of the visit to taste a delicious peach Melba, which is a recipe invented by Escoffier
