In the butcher's queue, close your eyes for a moment. This warm voice is the same as that heard on Wednesday morning between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Radio Bleu Gard Lozère, that of Michel Dussargues sharing culinary secrets and giving recipes. He lives in the Extréchure. The activity of his auto-enterprise based in Saint-Jean-du-Gard often brings him to the village. Michel defines himself, "as a kitchen consultant, friend of conviviality."

The tone of his voice remains enthusiastic and leaves no doubt. He enjoys talking and talking meals: "Via Facebook in particular, I respond to listeners who are always eager for advice. At the moment, I am asked a lot about pies, savory and sweet. Because of the season ", he says. His notebook at hand, he says: " If I practice improvisations on a dish, I never forget to write it down and to put these novelties in the book where all my recipes are classified"And with greed in his voice, he willingly accepts to deliver the subject of Crazy next Wednesday. On the menu, little stuffed!
