Number 5 - Summer 2022
Tabata & Ludovic MEY chefs de file
For its sixth edition, the Lyon Street Food Festival is returning to the former Fagor Brandt factories. On the menu: chefs and their teams from all over the world (particularly Asia, the Basque Country and Portugal), live music, dance performances, DJ sets, retro-gaming, some 300 free-to-access workshops (covering mixology, cookery, sport, oenology and more), shows, hot, cold and sweet food, and a Michelinstarred ambassador: Thierry Marx. New this season, more than twenty chefs will be gently “grilled” on stage, with the ‘Street Food Stories’ interview sessions.
A lyonnais by adoption, and born to landscape gardeners, maxime has a passion for plants and a love of japanese spiritualism. In 2020, he successfully launched france’s first “monthly plant box.

Each month, in his e-shop, you will find a themed box containing three baby plants, along with tips to take the best care of them. In a few weeks’ time, the thirty-something is hoping to take his business to the next level by opening his first brick-and-mortar shop in Lyon.
"I have very eclectic tastes, ranging from rock to pop, and sometimes even a bit of Katy Perry when the occasion calls. The song that best represents Hankō is ‘Goodbye Soleil’ by Phoenix, a pop song that brings together various influences."
