 Join authors Victoria Flexner and Jay Reifel of Edible History for an elaborate feast set in Louis' XIV's Versailles, inspired by their new historical cookbook, A History of The World in Ten Dinners: 2,000 Years, 100 Recipes. Guests will enjoy a five-course feast of dishes straight from the pages of La Varenne's seminal 1651 French cookbook, Le Cuisinier François, which ushered in a new era of French cuisine. While Louis XIV reigned from his magnificently opulent palace, Versailles, the culinary identity of France transitioned from its Medieval past to what would become French haute cuisine as we know it today.

While dining on the cuisine once eaten at the court of Versailles, guests will learn about the royals, the aristocrats, and the servants who lived within the palace walls—the dramatic politics and larger-than-life personalities who made this period of French history so fascinating.
