Since 2016, the New Franco-Chinese Institute has been introducing the richness of Chinese gastronomy to the residents of Lyon.
Not quite sure what this cuisine entails? Want to break away from the fried rice/spring roll/Peking duck cliché? Well, you’re in luck! No need to travel 8000 kilometres - the flavours of China are being brought right to your doorstep!
Throughout the course of the festival, Chinese Food Week will entice your appetite. 50 restaurants offer you a true gastronomic journey through China, with one or more traditional dishes with a twist. Note: each geographical sector in Lyon will pay homage to a different Chinese region!
