60 Star Chefs Whip up a Feast at Versailles to Fete French Gastronomy

Versailles, Hall of Mirrors

Save the date! On April 6, 2011 the Chateau de Versailles will play host to a celebratory dinner that promises to be one of the most lavish in its history (yep, even rivaling Marie Antoinette’s indulgences). Last November UNESCO listed French cuisine as part of the “intangible cultural heritage of humanity.” And to fête the inclusion of the French gastronomic meal in UNESCO’s World Heritage list, Les Grandes Tables du Monde and Relais & Chateaux are bringing together 60 of the greatest chefs in the world to create an unforgettable culinary experience. To name a few: Fréderic Anton, Daniel Boulud, Jean-André Charial, Hélène Darroze, Edouard Loubet, Thomas Keller, Kiyomi Mikuni, Michel Troisgros. 650 lucky guests will get to taste the fruits of their labor. Added perk: Before the meal, they'll enjoy a private tour of the Hall of Mirrors and the exhibition “Majestic Thrones” currently staged in the royal apartments. Price per person is 890 euros.
