About Michel Roux

Michel and Albert Roux grew up and trained as chefs in France before coming to England. They opened their first restaurant, Le Gavroche, in London in 1967, followed by several others and then The Waterside Inn in 1972. Both restaurants received three Michelin stars and The Waterside Inn retains its 3-star rating after an extraordinary 25 years. Michel and Albert starred in their own successful television series and have broadcast on radio and written a number of successful cookbooks. The family tradition continues as Michel's son Alain is now Chef Patron at The Waterside Inn and Albert's son Michel Jr at Le Gavroche. Author Locations: Bray and Londonshow more
