The museum is made with much love and care, and the staff is super friendly and welcoming to children. A little quiz for our daughter kept her entertained. Do get the audio guides for additional... more »
Surprising amount of history for those interested in the evolution of French cuisine.
I went there two times because some parts of the exposition sometimes change. It is always a nice experience and the atmosphere is comfortable and familiar. In July and August you can have a free "Melba's peach" in the museum's café and is a tasty and refreshing conclusion after the visit of the house of the greatest French chef in the world. The collection of chocolate and sugar sculpture is magnificent and the visit is suitable for families. The old mechanical kitchens, the history of Escoffier, the art in composing chocolate sculptures or beautiful menus... everything in that little museum invite people to come back . It is a short but complete journey on the birth of a modern way to cook in France. There is a wonderful guide you could listen for only 3€.
