Versailles cuisine

Discover the deliciously quirky culinary history of Versailles!

The Kings and Queens of France were known for their sweet tooth. Louis XIII was very partial to jam, especially at the end of a meal, while Louis XIV had a strong predilection for sugar-coated chestnuts and pastries. Louis XV soon showed a fondness for hot chocolate and never tired of extolling its fortifying, aphrodisiac and invigorating effects, while Marie-Antoinette had an unbridled passion for macaroons, which soon became her culinary motif.
