We spent really little time in Lyon, but we wish we had allotted more time to explore. Mainly because we love to try out restaurants and Lyon is known as the gastronomic capital of France. But our time there was spent at a cooking class that we highly recommend.
- Plum Lyon Cooking School: I can't say enough how great this was. Our friends Megan and Aaron had attended Plum Lyon a couple of years back and suggested we do it. It was a whole day experience which started at 9am with Lucy, the instructor, giving some history of the city as we walked to the market to choose the food for the meal we would cook that day. Then we stopped at the fromagerie for cheese and the butcher for the the best cut of the day. And then spent until about 6pm cooking a three course meal.
- Good eats: Les Retrova Illes - The owners are adorable and you could tell there were lots of locals that were eating there because the Chef kept coming out and greeting friends. His wife was really sweet and helped us with the menu and we had one of my favorite desserts there: Lles Flottantes, which they called a little boat on cream. Yuuuuum.
- We didn't really didn't have any nays because we were there for such little time.
