Fromage from Lyon! This beautiful urban creamery was opened in 2020 by Anaïs Duraffourg (the daughter of Comté producers, who later trained at La Laiterie de Paris), where she makes and sells her own cheeses and yogurts with her partner Émilie Bruyère and cheesemaker Lucas Clément. Produced using good, organic milk from the agricultural cooperative Le Mas d’Illins, located around twenty kilometers outside of the city: yogurts with mouthwatering flavors, creamy skyr yogurt, halloumi and, the star of the house, Le Petit Pont, a cheese similar to Saint-Marcellin that owes its ripe flavor to a fungus present in the Rhone air. Not to mention the other aged cheeses: smoked gouda, incredible Saint-Nectaire, gorgonzola scooped up with a spoon… Want something to go with all that? There’s also natural Séléné Beaujolais-Village from Sylvère Trichard, honeys, jams, terrines and pâtés made from pigs raised free-range on the Ferme d’Anaïs… // Marie Quetsche 

The hidden gem:
Some very interesting yogurts that smell of summer, infused with lemon verbena or lavender (€4 for a 450g jar).
