Millions of people visit the Palace of Versailles, but not many realize that tucked away just off of the grounds of the Château is Le Potager du Roi – the 17th century Garden created for King Louis XIV – and it truly is a garden fit for a King!

 

Changing ‘Cuisine Française’ and the dining table forever, this magnificent garden is credited not only for advanced techniques such as creating a microclimate for the production of over 300 varieties of fruits and vegetables which grew despite the season, but also for dramatically changing what was served at the Kings table.

 

We start our Gastronomie Versailles adventure with a journey through the spectacular ‘Potager’ and its importance to Versailles and the history of Cuisine Française. 

 

Leaving the ‘Potager’, we will continue our journey onwards through the city of Versailles tovisit and taste our way around the local Market de Versailles.  We will tour the four Market pavilions, discuss current cuisine trends and topics, and collect items for our French ‘Apero’ (the ‘apero’ in France is a term used for pre-meal nibbles), as well as cheeses to create our own Fromage plate.  

 

Following the Market we will head to our favorite local restaurant where we will enjoy the ‘Apero’ items we have collected and will follow with a four course set menu, including our Fromage plate from the market, served with wine.

 

The experience will end at around 2pm where you will be provided with a ticket to enjoy a visit to the Château of Versailles during the rest of your afternoon, and a return ticket for your train journey back to Paris.

 

‘A Savoir’ for this experience:

We meet promptly at 9:00am to take the RER together to the City of Versailles - please note that a lateness will mean us having to take a later train.

 

The cost of this tour is inclusive of:

·         a private guided tour of the Le Potager du Roi

·         all purchases made for the group at the market

Following the Market we will head to our favorite local restaurant where we will enjoy the ‘Apero’ items we have collected and will follow with a four course set menu, including our Fromage plate from the market, served with wine.

 

The experience will end at around 2pm where you will be provided with a ticket to enjoy a visit to the Château of Versailles during the rest of your afternoon, and a return ticket for your train journey back to Paris.

Millions of people visit the Palace of Versailles, but not many realize that tucked away just off of the grounds of the Château is Le Potager du Roi – the 17th century Garden created for King Louis XIV – and it truly is a garden fit for a King!

 

Changing ‘Cuisine Française’ and the dining table forever, this magnificent garden is credited not only for advanced techniques such as creating a microclimate for the production of over 300 varieties of fruits and vegetables which grew despite the season, but also for dramatically changing what was served at the Kings table.

 

We start our Gastronomie Versailles adventure with a journey through the spectacular ‘Potager’ and its importance to Versailles and the history of Cuisine Française. 

 

Leaving the ‘Potager’, we will continue our journey onwards through the city of Versailles tovisit and taste our way around the local Market de Versailles.  We will tour the four Market pavilions, discuss current cuisine trends and topics, and collect items for our French ‘Apero’ (the ‘apero’ in France is a term used for pre-meal nibbles), as well as cheeses to create our own Fromage plate.  

 

Following the Market we will head to our favorite local restaurant where we will enjoy the ‘Apero’ items we have collected and will follow with a four course set menu, including our Fromage plate from the market, served with wine.

 

The experience will end at around 2pm where you will be provided with a ticket to enjoy a visit to the Château of Versailles during the rest of your afternoon, and a return ticket for your train journey back to Paris.

 

‘A Savoir’ for this experience:

We meet promptly at 9:00am to take the RER together to the City of Versailles - please note that a lateness will mean us having to take a later train.

 

The cost of this tour is inclusive of:

·         transport to and from the city of Versailles via the RER

·         a private guided tour of the Le Potager du Roi

·         all purchases made for the group at the market

·         the four course set meal at the restaurant

·         a one day admission ticket for the Château of Versailles (for you to use after the tour)


You will be provided with a little welcome package including a La Cuisine Paris tote bag with train tickets to and from the city of Versailles, map of Versailles, and your tickets to enjoy the Château after lunch.

 

Please note: We will be outside for the majority of the tour and will spend approximately 3 hours of the tour on foot and walking - there is extensive walking involved in this tour.  Please ensure that you wear comfortable and appropriate clothing and shoes, so that you are able to have the most enjoyable experience with us!

Millions of people visit the Palace of Versailles, but not many realize that tucked away just off of the grounds of the Château is Le Potager du Roi – the 17th century Garden created for King Louis XIV – and it truly is a garden fit for a King!

 

Changing ‘Cuisine Française’ and the dining table forever, this magnificent garden is credited not only for advanced techniques such as creating a microclimate for the production of over 300 varieties of fruits and vegetables which grew despite the season, but also for dramatically changing what was served at the Kings table.

Following the Market we will head to our favorite local restaurant where we will enjoy the ‘Apero’ items we have collected and will follow with a four course set menu, including our Fromage plate from the market, served with wine.

 

The experience will end at around 2pm where you will be provided with a ticket to enjoy a visit to the Château of Versailles during the rest of your afternoon, and a return ticket for your train journey back to Paris.

Millions of people visit the Palace of Versailles, but not many realize that tucked away just off of the grounds of the Château is Le Potager du Roi – the 17th century Garden created for King Louis XIV – and it truly is a garden fit for a King!

 

Changing ‘Cuisine Française’ and the dining table forever, this magnificent garden is credited not only for advanced techniques such as creating a microclimate for the production of over 300 varieties of fruits and vegetables which grew despite the season, but also for dramatically changing what was served at the Kings table.

 

We start our Gastronomie Versailles adventure with a journey through the spectacular ‘Potager’ and its importance to Versailles and the history of Cuisine Française. 

 

Leaving the ‘Potager’, we will continue our journey onwards through the city of Versailles tovisit and taste our way around the local Market de Versailles.  We will tour the four Market pavilions, discuss current cuisine trends and topics, and collect items for our French ‘Apero’ (the ‘apero’ in France is a term used for pre-meal nibbles), as well as cheeses to create our own Fromage plate.  

 

Following the Market we will head to our favorite local restaurant where we will enjoy the ‘Apero’ items we have collected and will follow with a four course set menu, including our Fromage plate from the market, served with wine.

 

The experience will end at around 2pm where you will be provided with a ticket to enjoy a visit to the Château of Versailles during the rest of your afternoon, and a return ticket for your train journey back to Paris.

 

‘A Savoir’ for this experience:

We meet promptly at 9:00am to take the RER together to the City of Versailles - please note that a lateness will mean us having to take a later train.

 

The cost of this tour is inclusive of:

·         transport to and from the city of Versailles via the RER

·         a private guided tour of the Le Potager du Roi

·         all purchases made for the group at the market

·         the four course set meal at the restaurant

Unless you see something you really want to buy for yourself, no need to take your wallet out, we will take care of all purchases on the Market (the class price is all inclusive of items purchased on the Market for the group lunch!).  Please note that this is the one class where we do not have a set menu or set recipes – every class will be different!  We leave it to the group and the chef to be creative and choose their menu based on the most beautiful products they find on the market! Please keep in mind that there is siginificant walking involved aruond the market and back to the school.  If you need to be sure of where to go, check out this google map

 

After preparing your meal, dine with us. Wine included
