«Auguste Escoffier, un humaniste» from 11 Sept. 2021 to 31 Oct. 2022
Organized as part of Auguste Escoffier's 175th birth anniversary celebration (to be held on October 28, 2021), the Museum has decided to dedicate its new temporary exhibition to the social and humanist commitment of Chef Auguste Escoffier.
Auguste Escoffier has acquired a worldwide reputation for having codified and modernized French cuisine, giving it an international influence. He rationalized the tasks in the kitchen and worked continuously to improve working conditions. Beyond this image of the «king of cooks, cook of kings» Auguste Escoffier was a humanist and a precursor, as evidenced by his numerous initiatives in the fields of transmission and learning, mutual and provident care, and the fight against pauperism. A less well-known facet of the general public, his altruism will guide his actions throughout his life.

Fabrice Roy invites you to discover in the documentary-conference «Auguste Escoffier: une vision sociale», this man of heart, whose life went through two wars in the middle of the industrial revolution.
