American Lucy Vanel, a French-certified pâtissier, runs Plum Lyon Teaching Kitchen, a charming cooking school in the Croix-Rousse district, a residential part of Lyon that, beginning in the 18th century, was the headquarters of the silk-weaving industry. Daylong Market Table Classes include a morning visit to an outdoor market, cheese shop and bakery, followed by a day spent cooking.
Courses are limited to a maximum of six students and are taught in English. Vanel also offers French Pastry Workshops and private cooking lessons by advance arrangement.
