Here’s a museum that will delight gourmets, foodies, gastronomes... and greedy-guts alike! It retraces the curious and amusing history of cuisine and food from Antiquity to the present day, in all its facets. Discover the porte-fidibus, the zageman, the bousillé, and the fly cabinet too! Besides these original utensils, traditional objects are on show: they have many surprises in store for you too. You will learn more about the symbolic value of the cucumber and the artichoke, the many uses of sugar, the dangers of the baby’s bottle... Finally, through a questions and answers game, you will have the pleasure of guessing the use of certain tavern utensils. A rather quirky way of exploring the history of gastronomy!
