    In the heart of Paris, in the posh building made famous in The Elegance of Hedgehog, Pierre Athens, the greatest food critic in the world, is dying. Revered by some and reviled by many, Monsieur Arthens has been lording it over the world's most esteemed chefs for years, passing judgment on their creations, deciding their fates with a stroke of his pen, destroying and building reputations on a whim. But now, during these his final hours, his mind has turned to simpler things.

    C'est le plus grand critique culinaire du monde, le Pape de la gastronomie, le Messie des agapes somptueuses. Demain, il va mourir. Il le sait et il n'en a cure : aux portes de la mort, il est en quête d'une saveur qui lui trotte dans le cœur, une saveur d'enfance ou d'adolescence, un mets original et merveilleux dont il pressent qu'il vaut bien que tous ses festins de gourmet accompli. Alors il se souvient. Silencieusement, parfois frénétiquement, il vogue au gré des méandres de sa mémoire gustative. Il se souvient - et il ne trouve pas. Pas encore.
