It has taken over a year for us to entice him back, but Les Étoiles Michelin du Topaz alumnus Guy Lassausaie is on the way to Cambodia for another evening of indulgence in Phnom Penh.
A fourth-generation craftsman of food from Lyon in France, Michelin Star Chef Lassausaie will bring his unique blend of contemporary creativity and tradition to this gala event, which is also a feature of Goût De France, or Good France – a global celebration of French fine dining with this year’s ethos being minimising the footprint of each dish. As such, our menu will be mostly comprised of local, non-imported ingredients, celebrating the quality and taste of Cambodian seafood, which in general has a smaller impact on the environment than the production of pork or beef.
As always, our visiting chef will be imparting his knowledge upon a team of young and eager culinery professionals – and this time around two of our core team members will be collaborating with Chef Lassausaie on the big night at Topaz. Pov Sopheak, our head chef at Topaz, and Sek Sivanthonn, pastry chef at Khéma, will join forces with him to present a “Six Hands Dinner”.
The seven-course experience features Mekong River Prawn with quinoa and guacamole, the famous blue crabs of Kep, morel-stuffed Bresse Gauloise chicken breast, and the most decadent of desserts.
The evening is part of Goût De France, in which 5,000 chefs around the world will produce classic French menus with a focus on health and sustainability on March 21. The set menu is available at the cost of $95, or $135 with wine pairings.
