the music

Do you know about musical cooking? Welcome to Lionville for its annual competition! If it is indeed the famous lions, roosters and other turtles and hemiones by Camille Saint-Saens that are in the kitchen, the original dishes have been newly imagined by Jean-Francois Verdier. Beware, a clever fellow may have poisoned a dish... but which one?
