Michel Roux Snr
Michel Roux’s love affair with cheese began at the age of 7 with trips to his local market, St Mandé in Paris, to buy cheese for his family to share as a precious Sunday treat. A lifetime of international travel has served only to increase Michel’s passion for cheese, and inspired his latest book.
Cheese: The Essential Guide to Cooking with Cheese is an expertly curated work, exploring the provenance, seasonality (even health benefits) of cheeses, along with recipes including exceptional dishes from around the world and popular favourites, all with an original Roux twist.
Seek comfort in a bowl of Normandy Onion Soup elevated by the sweet notes of cider, or create the perfect light lunch with Sautéed Prawns with Feta & Basil. Cheese even finds its way into desserts with a warming Apple Strudel filled with the complementary flavours of apples, spices, sultanas and piquant pecorino.
One of our main deli suppliers, Jon Thrupp of Mons Cheesemongers, will be interviewing Michel Roux.
