Prose: non-fiction, TV / celebrity chef cookbooks

Reissue.

The Roux family is the most influential family associated with food in Britain. Through their various restaurants (Le Gavroche, Waterside Inn, Brasserie Roux) and catering services they have trained many of Britain's top chefs.

Albert and Michel Sr brought French high cuisine to Britain in the sixties, much of the produce being brought twice weekly from France by Michel's mother in the family car. Michel grew up in an environment of respect for fine food and ingredients, of never settling for second best and of traditional French family excursions to find wild food. He tells the story of what it was like to grow up as part of this close-knit family.
