Hospitality Action to host evening with Michel Roux OBE

Hospitality Action is to host an evening with Michel Roux OBE in conversation with Brian Turner CBE at Roux at Skindles in Taplow.

Taking place in the Cocktail Bar at Michel’s new brasserie on Wednesday 22 May, the event will feature a Taittinger Champagne reception followed by dinner. The evening will culminate in an exclusive interview with Michel followed by live jazz.

Guests will experience Michel Roux’s stunning new Thameside brasserie, which opened in November 2018 in partnership with son and Chef Patron, Alain. Roux at Skindles offers a casual take on classic French brasserie fare.

Michel will delight guests with stories about his hugely successful career that charts the course of Britain’s gastronomic awakening, a feat widely attributed to the Roux family.

Having launched, along with brother, Albert, his first restaurant, the acclaimed Le Gavroche in London, they went on to open The Waterside Inn in Bray-on-Thames, Michel’s famous restaurant.

The Waterside Inn remains the only establishment in the world outside France to have retained three Michelin stars for 35 years. The Roux family dynasty has provided a launch pad for many of the biggest names in gastronomy today, and their kitchens have been the crucible where many of the UK’s current crop of Michelin stars were first formed.
