L’Auberge du Prieuré: a gastronomic journey from the time of Leonardo de Vinci

Sieur Sausin and historical cuisine
Having worked as Major-domo then Maitre d’Hotel for individuals, Stéphane Sausin is now devoting himself to dramatic presentations of food. He has served famous people: François Mitterand, George Bush, and John Paul II, among others

"Lovers of fine meats, eager explorers of taste – bon voyage"
On the fixed menu or à la carte, Sieur Sausin will introduce you to Renaissance cuisine. He begins his dinners with Hippocras wine, and there follows food which is rich in the mouth and hearty for the stomach: “Eel quenelles with herbs”, “Tredura (hashed leeks) with good lard”, “Casserole of fat chicken with honey and lemon”, or “Hot apple turnover with cinnamon”.

A Renaissance atmosphere to delight your taste buds
The dishes and the dialogue will overwhelm your noble palate. Come in, and let yourselves be guided by the Master Chef – he will explain cooking with spices in the Mediaeval period, and the variety of flavours during the Renaissance and at the time of Catherine de Medici.
