TV CHEF Michel Roux Jr is to cook at a pub in Cheshire with his daughter for one night only.

The English-French chef, who owned the 2 Michelin-starred restaurant Le Gavroche in London, will be joined by daughter Emily at The White Horse Pub in Churton on January 27, 2025.

It is part of the pub’s “Guest Chef Series”, with the event already fully booked.

Owned by Sticky Walnut chef Gary Usher, the pub has previously welcomed TV chefs Tom Kerridge and Angela Hartnett since it opened in March 2023.

Gary said: “I might have reached the pinnacle of my personal career with this. 

“What does the name ‘Roux’ stand for in my profession? It’s the top, it doesn’t get greater, there’s no respect higher.

“The Roux family brought standards, techniques and a philosophy to British restaurants, pubs and hotels that we’d never had before.

“Think of a famous British chef… they were either taught by the Roux family or taught by someone that was. The name and family are revered globally. 

“It’s my honour and my pleasure to share a kitchen here with Emily Roux and her father, Michel Roux Jnr, on January 27.”

Michel Roux Jr trained as a pâtissier and has gone on to run some of London’s leading restaurants.

He is also known as a judge on the TV show Masterchef: The Professionals, and for The Roux Scholarship since 1999.

Emily roux is an experienced chef herself, and in 2017, published her first recipe book, New French Table, written in conjunction with her mother, Giselle.

In October 2018, she opened her first restaurant with her husband, Diego Ferrari, - Caractere, based in Notting Hill.
