L’Invention du Goût - The Invention of Taste

BY VIKTORIA VON HOFFMANN
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 20, 2014

Discuter des plaisirs de la table est une activité commune et valorisée aujourd’hui, liée de près à l’esprit de convivialité. Mais contrairement à ce que l’on pourrait croire, il n’a pas toujours été aussi aisé de discuter de nourriture et de goût dans le passé. En explorant l’histoire du discours sur le goût et la cuisine, Viktoria von Hoffmann montre les rapports ambigus que les sociétés occidentales ont de longue date entretenu avec le sens du goût, et cela bien avant la naissance du christianisme et du péché de gourmandise.
