In Australia, we have Tony Bilson as our godfather of French cuisine but in the UK, none can go pass the popularity of the Roux brothers. The Roux brothers have come a long way since their arrival to England from France and with little money on their hands, they managed to open up the legendary Le Gavroche in 1967. With passion, dedication and willingness to use the best quality produce, they managed to achieve the highest accolades of three Michelin stars after 15 years in the running.
Albert now resides in London managing his chain of restaurants – Chez Roux whilst the legendary Le Gavroche is run by award winning chef and son of Albert, Michel Roux Jr.
Sofitel Sydney initially organised the Albert Roux event last year but due to volcanic eruption and ash happenings, flights were unable to proceed. Postponing the event to this year was not at all a bad thing, having a full booking of the whole restaurant for lunch shows how popular the Roux brothers are, even in Australia.
