Our Team

  • Michel Roux OBE

    Chef, restaurateur, author, teacher, mentor, father, brother, pioneer, Michel Roux transformed the British culinary landscape. Co-founder of the first ever brasserie in the UK, Brasserie Benoît in London, along with the prestigious Le Gavroche, the eminent chef built a gastronomic legacy unlike any other. In 1972, he opened the iconic Waterside Inn in Bray, which has held three Michelin stars since 1985, longer than any restaurant in the world outside of France. The eminent chef inspired generations of young talent throughout his remarkable career. Alongside his brother, Albert, Michel Roux established The Roux Scholarship, which has been nurturing and promoting UK chefs in the world since 1984.

  • Alain Roux

    Michel’s son Alain Roux continues the illustrious Roux cooking dynasty. After an apprenticeship in pastry, he spent seven years touring some of France’s most notable kitchens, including La Côte Saint-Jacques in Joigny and Restaurant Pic in Valence. He joined his father’s Waterside Inn in 1992 and worked his way through the ranks. At the turn of the millennium, he was joint chef patron with his father, taking over in his own right a couple of years later. Alain is a Master Pâtissier in the International Association Relais Desserts, putting him in company with the best pastry chefs in the world, and a member of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, the leading professional association of chefs in UK.
