Roux Legacy, The

Large Programme Image


An extraordinary opportunity to see one of the world's greatest cooking dynasty at work - the much-loved and hugely respected Roux family. We will see Michel, Albert, Alain and Michael Roux Jnr working and cooking, often side-by-side. Rarely filmed together for the past 30 years, it's been a real treat to see even two Roux men in the same kitchen, and this series offers all four. 

The Roux brothers - the godfathers of the British food revival - have been hugely influential in the recent history of British cuisine, enjoying enormous professional success and training Gordon Ramsay and Marco Pierre White amongst others. 

Through the creation of their legendary Roux Scholarship programme in 1984, they have been shaping the culinary stars of the future and crucially raising the credibility of British food, paving an easier path for its culinary awakening. 

A unique opportunity to learn how they changed the culinary world, and how they continue to inspire and innovate.
