Author's Bio

Michel Roux is a legendary chef and one of the world's greatest experts on French cuisine. At his renowned restaurant, The Waterside Inn at Bray, he has held three Michelin stars for over three decades. His career has been hugely successful ever since he opened his first restaurant, the acclaimed Le Gavroche in London, with his brother Albert in 1967. He holds countless other culinary and personal honours and he was awarded an OBE in 2002 and the Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur in 2004. His previous titles include Pastry (2007), Sauces (2009), Desserts (2011), The Essence of French Cooking (2014) and Cheese (2017), published by Quadrille. Michel has appeared in several popular television series including, from time to time, Saturday Kitchen. In The Roux Legacy, televised in 2012, leading food critics and top chefs described the Roux family as the most important culinary influence ever in Britain. This is further underlined by Michel's founding in 1983 and patronage of the Roux Scholarship, the most acclaimed and influential chef competition in the UK.
