Must do things in Lyon, a cuisine institution
Lyon is rich in art and monuments. Its historic district of Saint-Jean is amazing, with its traboules and many famous monuments such as the Saint-Jean Cathedral and the Notre-Dame de Fourvière Basilica.
But this French city is in fact considered the capital of world gastronomy.
Here, in the famous typical restaurants called bouchons, it is possible to taste the delicious specialties from this region. For example, the Bresse chicken (“poulet de Bresse”), the tasty cheeses, the famous typical cold cuts such as the rosette and much more.
If you think of the gastronomic tradition of Lyon, you have to think of the famous local star restaurants, such as La Mère Brazier, or of typical foods, such as the famous Saint-Marcellin cheese.
The gastronomic history of this city has distant roots. Already in the past, it has attracted gourmet chefs and visitors precisely for its gastronomic specialties.
Cooking from the great middle-class families of the city, the famous Mothers of Lyon (“Mères Lyonnaises”) have undoubtedly contributed to the rich local gastronomic tradition. At the end of the 19th century, they set up their own business and managed the best restaurants in the city. So, this city has become a cuisine institution.
