queen of cream
Creamy, light and delicious preparation, Chantilly cream is tasted all over the world!
But was it really invented at Chantilly? The invention of whipped cream is frequently and wrongly attributed to Vatel in 1671 in the kitchens of the Château de Chantilly. But it was actually necessary to wait for the 18th century to see the name “Chantilly” appear in cookbooks and it was not until the end of the 18th century. that we manage to locate the so-called “chantilly” cream in Chantilly thanks to the Baroness of Oberkirch, during a feast at the Hameau organized by the Prince of Condé.
