Here is another menu to allow you to discover France through its regional dishes. Today we are going to Lyon, my hometown.
Some quick facts about Lyon:
- It is the third-largest city after Paris and Marseille.
- It is the birthplace of the Roman Emperor Claudius, who was born there in 10 BC.
- It is the capital of gastronomy.
- During WWII Lyon was the capital of the French Resistance because its many hidden passageways allowed freedom fighters to escape the Nazis.
The film I have chosen today to accompany the menu is Lucie Aubrac, a 1997 film by Claude Berry that tells the true story of a freedom fighter during WWII who tries to save her husband from a firing squad.
Here is today’s menu:
Apéritif / Appetizer
Entrée / starter
Plat principal / main course
Bon appétit! A bientôt pour un autre menu.
