La Raison gourmande se suggest de répondre positivement à l. a. query de Nietzsche : y a-t-il une philosophie du goût ? L'ouvrage est composé sur le mode contrapuntique : un chapitre solide, un chapitre liquide. Dom Perignon, Grimod de l. a. Reynière, Brillat-Savarin, Carême deviennent ainsi - avec Leibniz, Descartes et Condillac - les héros de ce livre savant et drôle. Chaque fois, l'auteur s'interroge : quelle est los angeles métaphysique promise par un ragoût ou une cuisson ? Et, inversement : de quelle process gastronomique s'autorisent les grands systèmes philosophiques ?
