On this visit, the guide presents the market’s most prestigious stands, mentioning how the big household names came to be (Jocteur, Bobosse, Mons, etc), the stories and origins of the products, as well as personal and family anecdotes, making the visit more personalized.
Imagine a crusty and golden baguette fresh out of the oven, filling the air with lovely aromas. Listen to what a piece of comté cheese and a piece of brie would say if they looked at each other and asked: although we come from the same milk, why are we so different? Discover the story of an apprentice, young and in love, who wrapped romantic notes around chocolates for his sweetheart, and, in so doing, invented the papillotte…
Once upon a time, there was Lyon gastronomy: family traditions, old recipes transmitted from generation to generation, regional products…
The tour lasts approximately 2 hours and includes stops for tastings: miniature quenelles from the Malartre boutique, three types of Lyon sausage (Rosette, Jésus, Saucisson de Lyon) along with a glass of wine from Bobosse, two cheeses from the Mons cheese monger, and a sablé (shortbread cookie) with praline candy from the Jocteur stand. The guide ends the tour by giving a Lyon coussin treat (chocolate) to each visitor.
