Here is the curious story of cooking ...

Here is the curious story of the kitchen, told with tools, furniture, paintings and authentic masterpieces, by passionate guides because the visit is by appointment.

In a seventeenth century farm, discover the fidelibus holder, the zagueman, the bouzillé, the fly cabinet!

The symbolic value of cucumber and artichoke, the multiple uses of sugar, the dangers of bottle feeding … and many other strange things!

In addition: delicious old recipes at the tavern, guided walks to discover wild edible plants, temporary exhibitions.


Quotes from visitors: “A jewel in a box with Russian dolls. The treasures are linked to the era and are revealed with shared pleasure and wonder.” “I visited the Musée de la Gourmandise, which I highly recommend. […] a universe at the same time unknown, funny, interesting … a touch of humor and questions for support made sure that time flew by”. Also for you by the way: a unique collection, a tavern that brings to light old recipes, a warm welcome on a 17th-century castle site!

A different living environment! Nothing better to have fresh ideas generated far away from the excitement in the office? In an industrial area, near Liège and Huy, Bierset and Tihange with easy access via the N90, we offer a rural resting place with a somewhat medieval charm: the museum of the delicacy and the discovery of old dishes. Seminars, brainstorming sessions, receptions, conferences: vaulted halls, a tavern with a fireplace decorated with old objects, a terrace full of flowers and a courtyard are at the disposal of the curious, looking for change.
