L'Éveil des Papilles,
At your service for 15 years

Our nomadic team loves taking on new challenges to write a new page in your history.

In 2008, Angélique and Fabien Cancelier set up l'Éveil des Papilles, a catering company whose reputation quickly spread beyond the borders of the Alpilles thanks to Fabien's success.

After several years in Paris working for some of the greatest names: Guy Savoy and Christian Le Squer at the Pavillon Ledoyen, the couple decided to live in Provence.

A human-scale structure, over the last 15 years we have organised more than 400 weddings and made-to-measure services in the most beautiful residences and châteaux in Provence and the south of France.

Mindset and Values

Excellence for your taste buds

Our aim: to make your event unique and pass on our passion for cooking.

  • A home-made 100% kitchen made with local, seasonal market produce, in our workshop in Saint-Rémy de Provence
  • Provence chic spirit: Refinement and elegance in the service of gourmet pleasure
  • Quality before quantity, we deliberately limit the number of receptions to ensure exceptional, tailor-made services
  • Respect for the environmentAs part of our commitment to the environment, we work on a daily basis to minimise our carbon footprint and impact on our planet (short circuits, sorting, optimising energy use, eliminating waste, etc.).
  • Human and social valuesBecause our people are our company's greatest asset. Development, training, valuing apprenticeships...
  • Food hygiene and safety at the heart of our concerns: control of standards, control of traceability, respect for the cold chain, control by an independent laboratory, etc.
