Taking a bite out of Lyon, the French and worldwide capital of gastronomy
Located in east-central France, the city of Lyon is famous for its food. Join Florence Villeminot and Genie Godula as they go to a typical local restaurant – known as a "bouchon" – which serves traditional Lyonnaise cuisine, hearty meals where offal is a star and wine is served by the pitcher. They also take you to the restaurant of revered French chef Paul Bocuse, who passed away in 2018. We even learn how to cook frogs' legs thanks to Olivier Couvin, the Michelin-starred chef who's continuing Bocuse's legacy today. This edition of French Connections is a chance to bite into Lyon's food culture and unlock the city's history.
