Lyon the gastronomic city

The school Institut Paul Bocuse is awesome!

(but this keyboard I'm now using is driving me crazy....)

Spent 7 hours in the school, where 3 hours were on the 3-course meal. The school is a chateau, has only 50 new students per year. They will not accept more than three people of the same ethnicity so to mix all cultures together. Unfortunately, they require flurent French, so probably the next time I meet the registraer we will communicate in French.

I also met a girl from George Brown Chef Scool, the one I am attending, who is here as an exchange student. Hopefully I can at least do that too.

The lunch was the best I have ever had in the entire trip--eating in a chateau with execellent food prepared under the supervision of a "Meilleurs Ouvriers de France", and the unhurried pace and relaxed ambience for less then 30 EUR! The courses include Amuse-bouche (very good), an appetizer of beef in stew, a main course of seared fish from the sea, a cheese platter, and a dessert of lavender ice-cream and porched pear...

This is definitely a steal. If you happen to be in the area, the restaurant is called "Saisons" right inside the school, which is located in Ecully, an outskirt of Lyon and about 45 minutes away on bus.
