The Escoffier Museum of Culinary Art
The birthplace of Auguste Escoffier
The only Museum of Culinary Art in France
The Escoffier Museum of Culinary Art is housed in the birthplace of Auguste Escoffier, a 300 m² authentic Provencal-style home from the 18th century, nestled in the heart of the village of Villeneuve-Loubet, between Nice and Cannes.
Created in 1966 on the initiative of Joseph Donon, one of his loyal disciples, this private Museum, managed by the Auguste Escoffier Foundation (a recognized public utility) and the only Museum of Culinary Art in France, allows you to discover the world of gastronomy.
Recently awarded the “Maisons des Illustres” label (French equivalent of the British “Blue Plaques”), the Museum bears witness to the life and work of this great culinary master, thus contributing to continuing his memory.
