Classic French Cuisine: The Roux Way Part 3
Learn in an online classroom with no more than 20 classmates. More
Master classic French culinary techniques and recipes from the leading London restaurant Le Gavroche, created and run by the Roux family for thirty years.
In this course Michel Roux Jr., star of MasterChef and owner of the two-Michelin star Le Gavroche in London, will help you bring provincial French cooking into your kitchen.
Taking lessons from his best-selling book ‘Pastry’, Roux will dispel the myth that pastry is intimidating.
Have spent two years as a pastry chef at the age of 16, Michel is passionate about pastry – getting it perfect is one of the most important lessons you can learn as a chef.
Practise your technique in the classroom and get feedback on your technique before you challenge your newfound skills with quiches, tartes, éclairs, choux buns and more.
Also on the menu is a vegetable flan, salmon mousse, fish stew, steamed Norwegian Cod with a white wine sauce, and Roux’s fool proof method for fish stock. Fish stock is one of the quickest, freshest, most fragrant stocks out there, and it is of course very resourceful, sustainable and satisfying to get use out of every part of the animal you’re eating.
This course is designed to help you bring the art of classical French cooking into your own kitchen and gain an exclusive insight into Michel Roux Jr’s chef’s secrets gleaned from years of experience training top chefs.
You will learn from Roux’s demonstration, and practise your own technique in the online classroom, gaining personal feedback from the master chef on your dishes.
This course is suitable for cooks of all levels, and will give you the tools to re-create the world-renowned cuisine of Le Gavroche in your own home.

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.
