Join Comte and Comtesse Patrice and Cristina de Vogüé for a lively conversation about their passion for Vaux le Vicomte, the historical and architectural masterpiece they call home. Created by the interior and landscape designers who would later build Versailles, Vaux le Vicomte stands as one of the most accomplished examples of classic style à la française.

Comte Patrice de Vogüé will vividly relate his tireless efforts to preserve the spirit of this legendary château, bringing back to life the finest decor of the 17th century created by Charles le Brun for the king’s minister Nicolas Fouquet. Comtesse Cristina de Vogüé, a renowned and elegant hostess, will share her personal experience as a modern châtelaine.

The evening will include a tasting of her famed desserts, featured in her new book
Decadent Desserts, Recipes from Château Vaux le Vicomte.
