Chantilly Lace.. oops I mean Chantilly Cream!
In French, whipped cream is fondly referred to as ‘Creme Chantilly” (pronounced ‘Chan Tee Ee) double L’s and a Y! The story goes that as Chantilly was a center of refined cuisine, the term ‘ Crème Chantilly’ became synonymous with ‘high cuisine’. The town is located just north of Paris and the chateau there is mystical. It was actually destroyed during the French Revolution but was rebuilt in the 1870s. I want to go there now!
