Today, the eyes of the culinary world are on Lyon. The second largest city in France will host the finale of the 30th Annual Bocuse d’Or, an international cooking competition between the world’s best chefs. The competition is known as the Olympics for foodies, with one country taking gold, silver, and bronze. Each of the chefs have 5 hours and 35 minutes to prepare a recipe. Additionally, this year the participants will work with “Bresse chicken and shellfish” a take on a classic Lyon recipe. Check out the website for more information about the competition and follow to see who takes home the grand prize!
Food is an essential part of any experience in Lyon. As you get ready to embrace your summer abroad, think of all the places you want to go and new experiences you want to have.

Attention all law students who are interested in attending the LSU Law program in Lyon: Summer 2017 is quickly approaching! We will be holding a second information session on February 2 at 12:40 pm in Room 106. The session is aimed at answering any questions you may have about the program as well as provide you with information about what to expect for what will be a great summer.
When travelers think of France and cuisine, they often think of Paris. However, Lyon’s culinary tradition has achieved more recognition than even France’s capital. The fame goes back in large part to Chef Paul Bocuse. Anthony Bourdain, an American chef and television personality, sat down with Bocuse, to discuss Lyon’s famous dishes. Also, Bourdain, on his CNN show, Parts Unknown, travelled to Lyon to experience the history and culture behind the city’s cuisine. Check out his blog post about the show where you can find some clips from the Lyon episode. The full episode, which is Season 3, Episode 3, of Parts Unknown, can be found on Netflix. Bon appétit!
