Macarons - Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse

“If Paris is the heart of France, Lyon is her stomach.” -An old saying by someone who obviously appreciates food as much as we do.

Almost everyone I know has been to Paris, but I can only think of one or two people who have been to Lyon. Or, maybe my friends and family have visited Lyon, but failed to mention it to me. But, I don’t know how anyone could possibly keep quiet about this fantastic city with so much to offer. One of its best offerings is food and you know how I loves me some food so, I’ll talk about that first.

Did you know that Lyon is the gastronomic capital of France? That’s like being the gastronomic capital of the world because we all know that French cuisine is the bombdiggity. For non-English speakers, that means French food is excellent.
