Queen of cream

Creamy, light and delicious preparation, Chantilly cream is tasted all over the world!

But was it really invented in Chantilly? The invention of whipped cream is frequently and wrongly attributed to Vatel in 1671 in the kitchens of the Château de Chantilly. But in reality it was not until the XNUMXth century to see the appellation “Chantilly” appear in cookbooks, and it wasn't until the end of the XNUMXth century. that we manage to locate the so-called “whipped cream” in Chantilly thanks to the Baroness of Oberkirch, during a feast at the Hameau organized by the Prince de Condé.
