Perfect for the arrival of spring in Paris, La Cuisine has announced a new food tour at the Palace of Versailles. Located on the banks of the Seine in the heart of Paris, the beloved cooking school has a devoted following of fans who’ve learned French culinary secrets in their kitchens (classes run the gamut from preparing three-course meals to the art of making croissants).
La Cuisine Paris offers a different way of seeing the famous Versailles Palace with its “Gastronomie Versailles” tour. You’ll get a peek at the magnificent “potager du roi”- the 17th century vegetable garden created for King Louis XIV, hidden just off the chateau grounds. Learn the importance of this royal potager in the history of la cuisine française- as it developed advanced scientific techniques. Then taste your way through the local Versailles market, assembling delicious cheeses for an aperitif plate. Following the market tour, you’ll enjoy a four-course meal at a favorite local restaurant. Cap off the day with a visit of the Chateau of Versailles. For more information, visit www.lacuisineparis.com.
