Château de Chantilly – le hameau

Of course, a trip to the château that shares the same name as fancy whipped cream wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the hameau — now turned into a tiny, expensive restaurant where you can buy a glass full of crême chantilly for 6 euro. As our two year wedding anniversary was earlier in the week (and we had spent a big fat 0 on gifts and foods, preferring to make our own Indian feast rather than going somewhere), The Husband and I felt okay about spending 10 euro for him to get a taste of the famous crême with some gingerbread. Lets be honest, I totally threw my allergies to the side and tried a bit as well and it was to-die-for.

If I were ever going to go back in time, move to France, and then marry The Husband, I would definitely want to have a wedding reception on the grounds here — basically for the fact that instead of a cake, I would just have them supply a huge sculpted pile of this stuff, along with a ton of cups, and everyone would just eat crême chantilly instead of cake — not to mention the copious amounts of fruit that I would have available for dipping.
