It's early days for this museum, the owner and his wife are charming and courteous hosts. My (professional cook) wife loved the reconstructed kitchen scenes - starting in the Stone Age - on the ground floor. Some of the later exhibits made me feel a bit ancient, I remember the near-lethal early electric toasters well. Upstairs there is a demonstration of the latest cooking technology from a well-known US brand who perhaps have a hand in supporting the museum. Also a history of famous French chefs and the story of tableware and table manners.
If they get the chance, and space is limited, I'd like them to add more on non-European cooking traditions - not a wok was to be seen, nor any mention of foo-foo pounding or sushi. But it's an enterprising museum, a welcome retreat from the crowds in nearby Old Town Square, and the T-shirts are good, too !
