Chantilly


Illustration - pve design, the makings of Chantilly cream
Imagine visiting a place known for it's whipped cream.  We visited "Chateau de Chantilly" and toured the Chateau and dined on the property.  

Our special dessert was fresh berries topped with Creme de Chantilly.  Freshly whipped for all of us to see, the chilled stainless bowl, the large whisk, fresh cream, a bit of confectioner sugar and vanilla. 

photo - "open wide " - enjoying the chantilly tasting from the bowl
Voila, lovely cream, a perfect topping to fresh fruit for a wonderful finish to any meal in any chateau or home.  Next time you are in Paris, plan a trip to Chantilly for a taste of 
fresh whipped cream, or perhaps a little Chantilly lace.

Looks and sounds delish . . . You've inspired in me a craving for tea at the Orangery in Kensington Gardens, although I couldn't be farther away . . .

This is my first time visiting and I'm glad I visted on the day of your cream illustration! I love spending time in the kitchen and this one made me all happy and smiles!
Where do you sell your work?

I think if I partook I would have a "Chantilly Face."

Har har...couldn't help myself. Fresh whipped cream is always key to serving up great dessert. Mmm.

Oh, I LOVE that sketch!!! I can just picture myself whipping up some yummy creamy delight! I was enrolled in Kendall College for a while working on my baking & pastry certificate and always had dreams of living in France for a year, perfecting my art. Alas, we moved from the area and I wasn't able to finish...but I can make a mean danish! Thank you for that bit of brightness today (it's raining in IL!!!).

I'd travel anywhere for good whipped cream.

Nuff said!

Oh goodness - that would be a definite stop I would want to make. The photos of the buildings almost look unreal - they are so perfect!

Oh dear, chantilly. I could eat it by the spoonful till there's no more. A dairy seller in my neighborhood hand makes his own... Must resist temptation.
