What to expect

Get an overview of the gastronomic tradition of Lyon with this 3.5-hour food tour with a local guide. Walk through the city and taste typical dishes!

In Lyon, you can find a restaurant on every corner! From traditional bouchons to starred restaurants to street food, this city offers countless possibilities! Here is a list of your possible tastings!

Wine Tasting and Cervelle des Canuts
Literally ‘silk worker’s brain. Don’t be scared, there is no brain part inside! It is a cheese preparation made with goat or cow milk, garlic, chive, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Delicious, especially when spread on a good slice of crispy bread. With the help of one of the most famous sommeliers of Lyon, you can taste some excellent local wine.

Pike quenelle with rice
A typical softball of pasta made with flour, some bread or semolina mixed or not with fish or meat. The one we will eat is made of pike and serve with a portion of rice.

Brioche with pralines
One of the symbols of France, Brioche, is here presented filled with tasty pralines, typical candies with an almond cover by cooked sugar and pink colored.

Sweet local tasting
In a local old-fashioned confectionery, you will have the chance to taste some of the most delicious sweets of the city, Cousins, cocon and petits pavés de Lyon will allow you to conclude the tour in the sweetest possible way.

All about Lemon
This shop in the centre of Lyon is just like the lemon, full of sunshine and vitamins. You will go from tasting to tasting and you will try the citrus fruit in all its forms, in a sunny and bright atmosphere.
