Located far from the hustle and bustle of the city, but close to the Place Bellecour, the delightful village of Chasselay has become a gourmet stronghold full of very good taste. The top man in the village here is not called Vitalstatistix, but Guy Lassausaie…and his legendary kindness is matched only by his culinary talents, which have been recognised with a Michelin star. The 1993 ‘Meilleur Ouvrier de France’ award winner draws his inspiration from his bucolic surroundings as well as his pretty bourgeois dwelling at the foot of the Monts d’Or, close to the hills of the Beaujolais. The fourth generation from a family of cooks, he tickles the taste buds with his crab cake with avocado and caviar, makes you melt with pleasure at the taste of his pan-fried Gillardeau oysters, leek purée and rye crispbread with caviar, and surprises even the most jaded people with his langoustines with angel hair pasta. You will feel thoroughly spoiled, right from his pigeon cooked in hay in a luted pastry-sealed pot through to his glorious array of desserts.
