Local passionate artisans

Thierry

La Crèmerie Lyonnaise - Fromagerie

This creamery and cheeses shop has been here in Saint Georges district since 8 years and I bought it one year ago. I have worked in the catering industry before and I decided to follow my passion for the local products. I collaborate with many regional artisans like Chrisitian Janier (MOF 2000 - Best Craftsman of France). I take a lot of pleasure selecting cheeses of an exceptional quality for the satisfaction of all my clients.

Laurent

BMD - Bar à vin

Crazily passionate about wines I decided to open this wine bar three years ago. My priority is taking pleasure while working with products of quality. I select and offer regional wines and also French and international ones. I have grown up in the Vieux Lyon and this adventure is like going back to my roots.

Joël

Les Fines Gueules - Bouchon Lyonnais

Here we have two quality requirements: Serving a real Lyonnais food and using fresh local products.
He studied at the Hotel School of Chamalières and after several experiences in Lyon, Paris and London he had a job at the Paul Bocuse Institute and worked 11 years with Paul Bocuse in Collonges as Deputy Director. Today he is back to the fundamentals of Lyon’s kitchen: Here we peel, we bone, we simmer, in a word we cook "... Enjoy your meal and let you be parched in our beautiful district of Old Lyon!

Alfredo

La chope de Lug - Beer cellar

Since 2012 I have my own beer cellar in the heart of Old Lyon. Passionate by this drink, as noble as wine but less known for its tasting, I decided some years ago to make Lyonnais discover their magnificent region. Lyon is the jewel of beer in France (people do not know!). I rely on the 220 microbreweries, located in four corners of our region, to propose only local artisanal beers to my clients.

Felix

La Fabrique Givrée – Artisanal ice creams

The adventure of Fabrique Givrée, is that of three childhood friends: Jérémie, Martin, et Hugues. Jérémie, a young expert and offbeat chef spent his early years in the saucepans. But when he was adolescent he chose to be a pastry chef! After 15 years in prestigious houses (Fauchon, le Bristol, Valrhona), in 2012 Jérémie chooses to leave with his sidekicks in search of the ultimate ice cream, putting his mastery of tastes and textures at the service of his unbridled imagination and his love for sharing.

Richard

David

David R - Chocolates & pastry shop

Being someone with a cook training, I decided to study pastry close to Olivier Tribut during my job experience as a chef at Neptune in Ajaccio. He passed on to me his passion of this art. We opened together one pastry shop in Ajaccio, then a second one. Two years ago I decided to come in Lyon to prepare the World Chocolate Masters (I love the sculpture in chocolate) where I was a finalist. While I was at it I opened a pastry shop in the Old Lyon where I create Lyon’s specialties: sweets of Fourvière, mini-rosettes in chocolate and the nose of Gnafron... chocolate-based of course.

Richard

Etienne (MOF)

MONS - Cheeses

In 1964, Hubert Mons and his wife decided to sell cheeses on the markets of the Roannaise region. In 1983, Hervé, the eldest son, after a career with the greatest Parisian cheese maker, established the first point of sale at the Halles Diderot. He continues to travel around France in search of the best products, producers who still produce in a traditional way respecting the ancestral know-how. Products which then he refines in his cellars.
This is why Maison MONS is now the official supplier of the best restaurants around the world and the reference in terms of cheese specialties.

Richard

Girls Bobosse

BOBOSSE - Charcuteries (Cold cuts)

Since the 1960s, René Besson a.k.a Bobosse created a cold cuts shop whose foundations were fresh products, quality and friendliness. From Lyon's bouchons to the great Parisian restaurants, to the inns of France and Navarre, this ambassador of St Antoine - patron of the charcutiers - has made known his products, thereby developing the image of the whole Beaujolais region. Of course, the years have passed away, but stringed titled andouillettes, baked sausages and other dishes are the best proof of the well-preserved know-how.

Richard

Boy's Merle

MERLE - Oysters

In 1938, Alphonse Merle bought the Maison Forte "Oysters and Shellfish" to set up at Les Halles des Cordeliers. With the help of his son Alain, champion of France’s oyster sellers in 1971, he made possible that the house Merle become the reference for the tasting of oysters in Lyon. In 2005, Alain Merle sold his house to the Lameloise family, owner of the Brasserie Georges. Today, the director Philippe Allard and his Chef, Oyster seller, Romain Masse continue this beautiful story with passion and talent.
