Crème chantilly is whipped cream, lightly sweetened and flavoured with vanilla. It is often attributed incorrectly to the French chef François Vatel, chef to Nicolas Fouquet and later Louis II de Bourbon-Condé in the 17th century, who is claimed to have served it for the first time for a banquet at the Château de Chantilly.
