This classic French cookery course is taught by Michel Roux Jr, from his kitchen at the globally influential Le Gavroche restaurant.
Two-Michelin starred Chef Patron Michel Roux Jr has been at the helm of Le Gavroche since 1991. He now invites you to join him in his kitchen to learn how to prepare classic French dishes in your own home. You'll be following in the footsteps of over more than thirty Michelin starred chefs who have trained at Le Gavroche, including Gordon Ramsay, Marco Pierre White and Monica Galetti.
The master chef will begin by showing you how to prepare an omelette Roux style – one of the first tasks he sets chefs who want to work with him.
You can tell a lot from an omelette, the preparation, the seasoning…the care.
He will then show you how to prepare an Omelette soufflé. This recipe and technique has never before been shared outside Le Gavroche's kitchen.
Then you'll learn how to cook the brasserie staple, ‘Steak Frites’, along with iconic French sauces, dressed salads, and classic French potato side dishes.
Throughout the course Michel Roux Jr shares his own chef’s secrets, demonstrating techniques learnt through years of experience training the world’s top chefs.

Meet Michel Roux Jr
There are few UK restaurants as globally influential as Le Gavroche. The Mayfair establishment has trained more than thirty Michelin starred chefs, including Gordon Ramsay, Marco Pierre White and Monica Galetti.
Two-Michelin starred Chef Patron Michel Roux Jr has been at the helm of Le Gavroche since 1991, when he took over from his father, Albert. It has been noted by critics that the Le Gavroche continues to maintain the highest of reputations amongst both diners and critics, and that this is a testament to the excellence of the food being prepared by Michel.
Roux trained in classical French cookery at Le Gavroche, as well as other restaurants in London, Hong Kong and Paris. This included military service working in the kitchens of the Elysee Palace. Michel also did a stint at The Waterside Inn, in Bray, Berkshire run by his uncle and the first restaurant outside France to hold three Michelin stars for 25 years.
Michel has written several cookbooks and first gained TV recognition appearing on Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen. He became one of the judges on BBC Two’s MasterChef: The Professionals, and fronts BBC Two’s Food & Drink programme.
