Chantilly, know as whipped cream, is originally coming from Italy where it was very popular during the sixteenth century. It was first called 'névé di latte", milk snow.
However, the famous cream was attributed to François Vatel, Chantilly Castle's butler and Nicolas Fouquet's pastry chef-caterer. The popular cream was apparently served during a party in honor of Louis XIV.
Symbol of the art of French living, the whipped cream has conquered gourmets worldwide. It has since been imitated and turned away from the traditional recipe.
