Not a lot of people know that Michel Guérard’s revolutionary Cuisine Minceur was created in a hairdressing salon on Avenue Montaigne! Before his legendary Pot au Feu restaurant at Asnieres, Guérard, having trained as a traiteur/patissier, was asked to set up a little “snack” chez Monsieur Antonio, a tres BCBG gentleman who ferried freshly crimped jet-set clients back and forth in his Rolls-Royce. “I could understand that the “ladies who do” wanted light, light, light. So I called my lunches “Ligne”. Unfortunately, the extravagant crimper went bankrupt; Guérard went on to make his name chez Regine, at Asnieres, and the world.
