“A Culinary Treat!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

I love Lucy's classes. From the moment you walk in to her kitchen you are immersed in a warm, friendly and thoroughly French experience. Lucy has such a vast knowledge of French cuisine and teaches in a wonderfully relaxed and entertaining manner. And the best part is tasting the fruits of your labour accompanied by deliciously paired wines carefully selected by Lucy herself. She is an encyclopedia of knowledge and is full of recommendations. When you leave you feel you have really had a true French experience!! Oh, did I mention the cheeses??? Makes me want to head to the kitchen right now.....

“A memorable experience in our French trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

We are always seeking experiences in countries which will remain specail and highly memorable and our time at Plum is one of those. We took the Croissants A-Z with Lucy and it was a perfect way to spent our afternoon in Lyon, and to have a skill from our time in France to take back home. There is not a single lesson that doesnt look mouthwatering. Lucy is a fantastic teacher, and we hope your results will be as tasty as ours.

Do not miss this activity in Lyon!

“A day in the Plum kitchen is magical!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

I have had the privilege of spending many a thursday in Lucy's kitchen and it will always be one the most special places I spent time in while in Lyon. I cannot rave enough about the kitchen, the dining room, the locally sourced foods and all the knowledge I gained during Plum's classes/workshops! But truly, what makes a day in Plum such warm, welcoming and incredible experience is Lucy herself. Her love of the food, of the uniqueness that is France, her passion for sharing her knowledge and her ability to make you feel like a welcome friend or family in her kitchen is what makes Plum not like any other cooking class. A day with Lucy in her kitchen is an unrivaled experience you will cherish every time you reflect on your time in France!!

“Fabulous cooking school in Lyon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Having lived in lyon for a few years I was able to visit Plum on many occassions. Lucy is a fantastic teacher making every lesson so informative, enjoyable and fun. The atmosphere is relaxed and professional at the same time and the variety of classes offered would suit most tastes. My friends and I always took classes on Thursday where you get to sit arounda a table end enjoy your meal along woth some fantasetic cheeses Lucy had always picked.

If you visit Lyon you MUST make time for a class at Plum.

“A wonderful way to spend the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Myself and a group of friends have spent a number of fantastic days learning to cook a variety of delicious French dishes with Lucy at Plum Lyon. It was a day we looked forward to as Lucy is so easy going and makes the most wonderful food, which I've since enjoyed recreating at home. As an ex-pat living in Lyon at the time it was a perfect way to get to know French food, and she was always willing to cook things we wanted to learn to do. Lucy is very knowledgeable about food and the local markets and made it a very interesting way to spend the day. Not to mention the yummy food!
