Hi, My name is Fabienne, I am a French woman. I am involved in Les Petites Cantines Perrache, 74 rue de la Charité in Lyon 2. It's a place I like and I wish I could meet more English speaking people there. It's a perfect place to improve your French to ! If you want to come and join the cooks, you are welcome. If you just want to come to have lunch, that's fine to. It's a non profit organization. People pay what they want for the lunch. Nice events are organized there. You feel like teaching us a recipe from your place, feel free to say so ! Hope to see you there.

Hi all, Wondered if any knew where to get some Thai Green Curry Paste? I have looked all over the place in Lyon and can't find any. No supermarkets have it, and I have been to several asian shops like "Madras Bazzar" in Cordeliers / Saxe Gambetta with no luck. Plenty of indian pastes and spices (I really would recommend Madras Bazzar for that!) but nothing Thai. Answers on a postcard please :) Thank you! Dave

Can anyone help me find out if there is a limit to how mant bottles I can put in my car?  We enjoy tasting and buying wine from the vineyards here in the  Lyon area. However my french friend tells me there are rules on how much you can put in your car and drive with. This is wine for personal consumption within France. I think she may be thinking of taking wine out of the country (uk customs do stop people who carry vans full of booze, I know) but she is adamant its within France.  Nobody we've bought wine from has indicated there is a limit but it wouldn't be in their interest. any ideas on this?.

Hi anyone found any good ones in Lyon? the only one Ive found is Monoprix's Cheddar which I didn't like as it was a bit 'grainy',,I suspect it had been frozen at some point and for the price should have been better. Thanks for any sightings!

I recently visited Nice and went to a restaurant where they served the local dish of "socca". It was superb. I will be in Lyon shortly and wonder if anyone knows of a restaurant where I will find "socca" on the menu. You can come along for a free meal with me if you wish!!!   Mike

We're planning a few days in Lyon next month and would be grateful for restaurant recommendations in the town centre. One of the ones we are thinking about for lunch is Le Sud, place Antonin-Poncet, in the city centre. Has anyone lunched here? Any recommendations for other restaurants in this area would also be welcome.
