Lyon Market , Halles of Lyon - Paul Bocuse

Is been a long week in Lyon and after all the competition thingy underway, it was time to have a walk in one of my favorite place  ........

The central food market of Lyon!
This magical place for gourmets, where the whole world comes during the stay in Lyon , in this case during the Bocuse d’or competition , but also when it is a question of picking up a product of exception; opens up henceforth with a large window, topped with a glass roof on the Cours Lafayette, the covered market of Lyon .has the reputation it deserves.

It there Chef Paul Bocuse?
Before becoming one of the most world-famous Frenchman, he always did his marketing personally and one can still find in the alleyways, his favourite suppliers. The famous Mère Richard, the cheese maker, Maréchal, her alter ego, the fishmonger Pupier, the pork butchers Colette Sibilia and Gast.
Some others have come since then and have become just as illustrious:
 The butcher, Maurice Trolliet, "Meilleur Ouvrier de France" (best worker in his category), in whose shop exclusive meat can sometimes be found; Sève, the tremendous chocolate maker renowned for his salt macaroons; Bahadourian, Cellerier...

The "Halles de Lyon" all day long and all year long
You can have a good meal (mâchon as it is called in the region)  in the bouchons (typical restaurants of Lyon), and which are installed around the shops and where you can taste oysters, with a "pot" of Mâcon (white wine) at the stall of the oyster sellers. You will meet the best Chefs of Lyon and Rhône-Alpes (thus of the world) in the alleyways and they were all there, with their chef hats and aprons to honour Paul Bocuse, who now gives his name to the covered market of Lyon, which is perfectly justified.
