SO FRENCH SO FOOD 2020

Moreover, it is thanks to his wife’s background in Lyon that this chef (who trained with Gérard Boyer, Michel Guérard and Jacques Maximin, and then went on to gain further experience in the kitchens of the Elysée Palace) came to Lyon to spread the deliciously naughty message attributed to Epicurus: ‘Be quick to succumb to temptation before it gets away.’
L'hostellerie la Ferme du Poulet
Olivier Degand’s pretty restaurant in Calade is an eatery not to be missed and it is not just for those who love poultry. Located in the farmhouse of a former monastery, the ‘Hostellerie’ jealously guards the secret of the recipe of his 2016 world championship winning pâté-croûte, which is quite definitely worth the detour of just a couple of minutes outside Lyon. Specialities can be enjoyed in a room redecorated with a contemporary flavour, under the guidance of his welcoming wife Catherine, the sommelier and owner of this elegant and immaculately maintained residence.
