A gourmet break
All the kings and queens of France had a sweet tooth. Louis XIII was particularly fond of jams, especially at the end of a meal. As for Louis XIV, he had a keen taste for marrons glacés and patisseries. Louis XV quickly revealed his fondness for hot chocolate and never tired of extolling its reviving, stimulating and aphrodisiac effects. Lastly, Marie-Antoinette quickly chose the macaron as her culinary mascot, for which she had an immoderate liking.
