Lyon, Capital of gastronomy
"Lyon is the capital of gastronomy", as Curnonsky, "the prince of gastronomes" was famous for being said in 1935.
Initiated by women, the Mères Lyonnaises, this culinary tradition has been sustained throughout time. And it is now being reinvented.
With over 4,000 registered restaurants, Lyon is more than ever the capital of gastronomy. Generous, inventive and resolutely focused on the future, the city is already training the next generation of chefs in its prestigious schools.
