With large windows overlooking the Cours Lafayette, this complex of 56 shops and restaurants offers the best in Lyonnais cuisine. Students can get familiar with local cheeses, sausages, snails, dumplings, Saint Marcellin, Beaujolais, and Coteaux du Lyonnais.
This pork butcher’s shop and delicatessen is one of the best in Lyon. Apart from the great quality of its products, the personality of Colette – aka Coco – also has a lot to do with it: her kindness and knowledge of gastronomy have made her a true Mère Lyonnaise (Mother of Lyon). Students can learn about the favourite pork products of so many local bouchons.
Ranked among the top 10 chocolatiers in France, Chocolaterie Seve is run by Richard and Gaëlle Seve. In 1991, they bought a pastry / chocolate ‘laboratory’ in Champagne au Mont d’Or to practice the ‘alchemy’ of creating their desserts and chocolates. Students can find out how they develop exquisite and unique products, such as their salt macaroons.
Violette and Berlingot – translated as Violet and Humbug – is a store for sweet lovers, with the emphasis on the nostalgic sweets of childhood. Students can sample authentic French flavoured sweets such as Toulouse violets, pink marshmallow squares, meter licorice, caramels with salted butter Guerande, the bergamot Nancy, and the softness of calissons.
This large Lyon market has a distinct flavour, one that represents Lyon’s proud working class heritage with a vivacious zest for life. Butchers, charcutiers, bakers, producers, dry goods and international sellers line up for nearly half a mile along the avenue. Students can come and hear the vendor cries, and see the merchandise moving at speed.
