2 hour-tour with tastings in the indoor market of Lyon "Les Halles Paul Bocuse"

Welcome in "Les Halles de Lyon", the centre of french gastronomy ! The best products in France are concentrated in this covered market with the 50 most famous stallholders and producers : "Mother" Richard and its famous Saint-Marcellin cheese, Colette Sibilia "queen of saucisson de Lyon", and all the different sweet delicacies and confectioneries such as the "coussin de Lyon" and the praline.
Your guide speciallized in food will take you for this stroll from stall to stall in a very warm atmosphere in order to taste the local specialties and to understand the reasons why Lyon is considered as the french capital of gastronomy : its typical restaurants without any fuss ("bouchons"), the female chefs named the "mères lyonnaises". . .
