François Vatel, maître d'hôtel and confidant of the powerful, organised the most beautiful and sumptuous parties for the court of King Louis XIV. The one at Vaux-le-Vicomte, on 17 August 1661, was of such grandeur that it precipitated the fall of Nicolas Fouquet. In April 1671, while in the service of the Prince de Condé, Vatel organised the reception of King Louis XIV and his court at the Château de Chantilly. Nearly two thousand people had to be housed, fed and entertained, with a purely political aim: to re-establish the royal confidence of the Prince of Condé. Vatel devoted his life to this theatre of political celebrations.

On this 350th anniversary of François Vatel's death, this book offers a discovery of the man and his myth, of the parties and receptions at the time of Louis XIV, of the birth of the art of the table and of French service.
