#4 of 15 in Things to do in Villeneuve-Loubet
French culinary history comes alive at Musee Escoffier 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.

  • A gem nestled in the heart of the old village, very warm and many discoveries in the menus! Accessible to passionate cooks like to those of history.

  • The reception was nice and the guide was friendly and clear in her explanations. Mr. Escoffier is the Grand Chief of the global kitchen. It is a must when you love the kitchen or that we're all just a "passionate" in the broad sense. Again a big thank you to the staff for their smile!

  • An atypical Museum life of the first modern Cook, dreamlike menus like the cat with his rats during the siege of Paris during the war of 1870. Entry 6 euros with an audio guide and a peach Melba offered at the end of the visit
