Francis I visits Chillon

Dec 1, 2017
Veytaux - Gastronomy & Wine

The Friends of Chillon are putting on an exceptional evening for a flavour-filled tasting experience, with a Renaissance-style feast put together by Philippe Ligron, head of the Alimentarium cookery workshops and well-known presenter of Swiss radio show “Bille en tête”.

At 6:45pm, you will be offered a welcome drink in the Domus Clericorum by a magnificent open fire, with ambient music from the era. Then, from 7:15pm onwards, you will take your places in the beautiful Aula Magna room, where you will be transported into the culinary world of the Renaissance.

As a passionate foodie and unrivalled storyteller, Philippe Ligron will show you the rituals and elegant touches of this luxurious era. A level of splendour that incarnates the wonderful Francis I, the emblematic Renaissance king, whose mother was none other than Louise, Princess of Savoy.

Fine ladies and noble lords in costume are more than welcome!
