Other Traditional Dishes

An exquisite palette of flavours

La cuisine lyonnaise is widely recognised to be the best in France, and Lyon the country's culinary capital, contributing many dishes to the national repertoire, from the typical salad of lettuce, poached eggs, croutons, and bacon to andouillettes, special sausages usually cooked on a grill or braised in wine. If you like your cheese, the region offers various unique varieties, along with a tasty cheese spread, cervelle de canut, made with vinegar, herbs, and olive oil. In the desserts department, bugnes are a kind of sugared fritter made with eggs, flour, and milk, especially popular in March and April. All the above are available in most restaurants throughout the city. Forks up!
