Walked to the museum following a local food event - having completed the Grand Diplome program at Le Cordon Bleu, I was surprised at how much there was to learn from this beautifully curated collection. Who knew the 1st french chef to receive 3 michelin stars was a woman? Really enjoyed the visit, the peach melba and the helpful staff.

The museum is made with much love and care, and the staff is super friendly and welcoming to children. A little quiz for our daughter kept her entertained. Do get the audio guides for additional information. A lovely surprise at the end with a yummy sampling of Escoffier’s peche melba. Absolutely recommend!

Nice small museum with lots of history about the famous french cook Escoffier. We were lucky to see the works of the chocolate artisans. It was a room filled with sculpted chocolates 🤎 the smell of chocolate were everywhere. There was also a sculpted chocolate of Darth Vader :o At the end we got a free peach melba 💖 The museum was not crowded at all, so it was very enjoyable and no rushing.

My son and I liked this museum very much. You could see how fine dining evolved during the 1800's with everything from different stoves to fantastic menus. The choclate room was really interesting to see. As M Escoffier invented the Peche/Peach Melba dish for the renowned opera singer Nellie Melba we received a very nice finishing of this museum with a Peach Melba dish included in the 6€ entrance fee. Furthermore, the museum personell was very kind and helpful. We recommend this museum (we even had to enjoy a 2h delicious lunch after the museum visit in Villeneuve Loubet). If your French is not too good, then I recommend the audio guides as the describing texts were only from time to time in both English and French. Could have been more in both languages.

What a great find! Luckily I had GPS in the car to help me find this place and a nearby carpark at the top of the hill near the church and castle. It was just a short walk down to the museum through the narrow passageways and stairways. The museum is a treasure-trove of information about French culinary arts, and in particular Auguste Escoffier. It is well laid out and fairly well captioned, but paying the extra 3 euros for an audio guide is a very good investment. If you have any interest in the history of French cuisine, this is a must-see attraction. I particularly loved looking at the historic menus on the top floor!
