Praise for 47atelier des saveurs

Therefore, if I have retained the transmission, the rituals and the sincerity that take place in 47Atelier des saveurs, it may be because what remains of the collection, through the fine gourmet descriptions of paella, moose liver, the local flavours of raclette, or Islay single malt whisky, is a sense of respect, not towards mere “materials” … but rather towards natural resources and human wealth. By extension, it is a relationship with the world that is honoured.

Anne-Renée Caillé, Revue Liberté

47Atelier des saveurs isn’t for reading, it’s for savouring. We enter it a page at a time, letting ourselves be carried away by the book’s places, flavours, and above all by the smells we can imagine. For me, this is a very evocative collection. Of smells, flavours, colours, which all arouse the senses. We literally feel while reading a very tangible sense of what the author is sharing with us. And yet, the book’s construction at first appears disorderly. We dip into it as though from an old box of mismatched recipes. We then realize that these texts by Charles Sagalane, though short and diverse in form and content, are conceived with great writing skills.

Geneviève Bolduc, Un thé à la bibliothèque

Smell, taste, drink, eat: 47Atelier des saveurs is an ode to the flavours, colours and textures that we may find in our glasses, cups and plates.

Valérie Lessard, Le Droit

Goûteux, intime et politique comme jamais.
