The project in a nutshell

Good food and good company

Developed by Montréal art and design studio Daily tous les jours and by culinary artist Nicolas Fonseca in collaboration with Le Central furniture designer Guillaume Sasseville, Eating Voices combines a special auditory experience with the best of Montréal gastronomy.

Located in Le Central, a hub for local gastronomy icons and emerging restaurateurs, the project invites guests to awaken their senses by savouring a meal to the sound of audio stories developed by local artists. Drawing on their respective practices and approaches, writers, filmmakers, playwrights, visual artists, dancers and perfumers have developed audio stories that strike the imagination and create unique and deep connections between people.

“Eating Voices are like friends with whom you share a meal. Between bites, they discuss the place food has in our lives and transform the usual stages of a meal into a sensory journey. Whether its Mother Nature taking care of food cycles or a scientist talking to plants, every story offers an opportunity to deepen your connection to the people around you and to what you eat.”

– Nicolas Fonseca

Eating Voices is a collaboration between Daily tous les jours and Nicolas Fonseca. Somewhere at the intersection of art and design, Nicolas Fonseca imagines sensory experiments where food is a vector for connections between people, creating a celebration that is both personal and collective. At his table, meals are served with or without cutlery, with or without good manners.
