A Third Visit for Michelin Star, Guy Lassausaie

He’s back! After already delivering two wonderful evenings for Phnom Penh’s food lovers, Guy Lassausaie is coming back for another spectacular celebration of fine food, fine wines and fine company. The Michelin-starred chef, and winner of Meilleur Ouvrier de France (“Best Craftsman of France”) in 1993, has pulled out all the stops and created another show-stopping eight-course Dine with the Stars menu, entirely for your pleasure on Thursday March 19.

Guy, who was born into cooking, literally born in the building in which his own restaurant now flourishes in Chasselay, Lyon. Here he is celebrated for his talent for brining together classicism and modernity, quality and conviviality.

For Guy, coming back to Cambodia for a third time is a chance to build on the relationships he has already made and to discover more about Cambodia’s local ingredients and dishes. As he always does, he will of course be spending several days training the Topaz team during his time here.

“At Topaz, I really enjoy the enduring exchange with the team, and the opportunity to share my knowledge with professionals who are attentive and engaged”, he says. It is also a huge pleasure for him to meet new people, and affirm the friendships he has already made, “especially with the Darc family,” he adds.

This time, the flavours of the sea reign supreme for the opening part of the meal which extends to four courses. Here you’ll find the briny sensations of oyster, Mekong river prawn, scallop and red mullet offset with vibrant flavours from around the globe including Espelette pepper from the southwest of France, Mizuna mustard from Japan, passion fruit, ginger, lime tea and much more as well as the earthier flavours of lomo iberico, white asparagus and truffle.

The main course brings us a savoury taste land and air, with roasted pigeon breast, buckwheat, chickpeas and sesame, a confit of pigeon thighs and Brussels sprouts stuffed with back bacon. For the finale, Guy has created a two-part dessert that bursts with the sparkling flavours of clementine, apple, cider and grapefruit. You can find out more by checking out the menu below.
