Farewell Lyon, and France

It was fitting that our last meal in France was in Lyon, the gastronomic HQ of France according to many. And one of our best. We ate at Le Splendid, a Georges Blanc restaurant. I had the chicken from Bresse with a morel sauce. We’ve had this dish several times in France but this was really the best. Better than the excellent one at Comptoir Abel. It’s a great place steeped in Lyonnais history. Just look at how fat and juicy those morels are!
