Recipes from the new star presenter of Masterchef: The Professionals.
Michel Roux has a justifiable reputation as someone who knows everything there is to know about food, how it should taste and how it should be cooked. He is very serious-minded about cooking and his masterly performances on MasterChef have created a wide and admiring fan base.
'MasterChef shows cooking as it should be and it's very good at showing the passion and skills required in becoming a chef and you learn something about food.'
Food has always been at the forefront of his life and the recipes in this book are a distillation of his vast knowledge and experience, made available to the home cook.
Michel Roux Jr is one of London's most respected chefs. Le Gavroche, which he has run since 1991, continues to receive recommendations for excellence in every food guide. Michel's early training in France instilled in him a belief in simplicity and quality of raw ingredients which has he put to use in developing the recipes he uses both at Le Gavroche and in his books: Le Gavroche Cookbook, Marathon Chef and Matching Food and Wine.
