Play for your chance to win a trip to Lyon, France!

Clerkenwell Boy EC 1 and La Vallée de la Gastronomie invite you to discover the delights and beauty of Lyon and the Beaujolais region during a 4-day, 3-night stay!

It was in 1935 that food critic Curnonsky, crowned Lyon “world capital of haute cuisine”. Decades have passed and haute cuisine is still central in Lyon, particularly influenced by the great chef Paul Bocuse and the Mères Lyonnaises (talented female professional cooks, many of whom had no formal training). Today, from fine restaurants to the famous local “Bouchons”, home-made organic and veggie dishes, as well as tea rooms and coffee shops, Lyon is foodie paradise from starter to dessert. Come explore the authentic flavours of Lyonnais cuisine! 


And just 30 mn away, travel through the Beaujolais region, home of one of the world's most famous wines! Beaujolais wines are grown on large vineyards, amid small golden stoned villages. This is the perfect opportunity to discover the incredibly skillful winegrowers and visit some magnificent châteaux!
